The AOC seeks proposals from State of California, Department of General Services ("DGS")-approved travel agencies in order to select a travel agency to work with the AOC in arranging judicial branch travel.
On June 7, 2006, DGS announced that DGS-approved travel agencies would be deactivated from their direct links with Southwest Airlines, and such travel agencies would no longer have access to Southwest Airlines' Ycal fares for the executive branch of the California state government. PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE DGS ANNOUNCEMENT DOES NOT APPLY TO THE JUDICIAL BRANCH OF THE CALIFORNIA STATE GOVERNMENT, INCLUDING THE JUDICIAL COUNCIL OF CALIFORNIA, AND THE ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICE OF THE COURTS. The travel agency selected to be a service provider as a result of this RFP will be expected to be trained on and book travel via the SWABIZ reservation system on behalf of the AOC for judicial branch travel on Southwest Airlines. DGS' announcement does, however, require that the AOC revise and re-issue the subject Request for Proposal (RFP) in order to address this issue, and to revise all Key Event dates.
Written proposals must be received no later than 1:00 p.m. on August 1, 2006[Date Revised].
