    Re:                Bus Service Bids

    Albany Area Schools is looking for someone who would be interested in doing routine maintenance (service) and repairs to the district’s fleet of diesel buses.  Our warranty items would continue to be taken care of at Maney International or North Central Coach.  We shall seek out a bid for the service work from June 1, 2018 through May 31, 2019.  If your organization is interested in bidding this service and repair work, please fill out and return the final page by Noon on June 15, 2018 to:

    Attn:  Sue Clemen, Business Manager

    All Sealed Bids should be marked: BUS SERVICE BIDS

    Albany Area Schools reserves the right to accept the bid which is most cost effective.  The 21 routes that these buses are currently on (the 6 additional buses are standby’s) encompassed 228,000 miles this past year.  These vehicles are serviced at 8000 mile intervals.  I have enclosed a preventative maintenance check list which you would be required to use as a format while servicing these vehicles. This inspection will take approximately 1 to 1½ hours and is considered part of the service cost.  These vehicles also get an additional grease job (grease only) at 4000 mile intervals.  During the regular service, this will be part of the full service bid cost.  Please specify (on the final page) what the additional grease job cost would be.

    We would request that in servicing these vehicles, you use SAE 15W40 oil with specifications at or exceeding CF-4-CE-CD-IISG.

                         Please Specify:________________________________________________.

    These vehicles need 16 – 26 quarts of oil per change.  Also (at regular services) you would replace filters with Navistar or equivalent.
