Pacific Charter Institute (PCI) is currently accepting applications for vendors to participate as an active instructional service provider for its students. The final day to apply to become an approved vendor for the 2017-2018 school year is Friday, March 30, 2018.
All vendor applicants must submit their application online and be referred by a teacher, student, parent, or staff member of PCI and its family of schools (Heritage Peak Charter School, Rio Valley Charter School, Sutter Peak Charter Academy, and Valley View Charter Prep). All PCI vendors are required to be compliant with AB 1610/Education Code Section 45125.1:
Education Code Section 45125.1 requires that an individual or entities providing services (vendors & vendor applicants) to public school students must be fingerprinted by the California Department of Justice for a criminal records check. The vendor and/or vendor applicant is required to fulfill this requirement at its expense. No such individual may be permitted to come in contact with students until the records check is complete. No individual with a record of conviction for a serious or violent felony may be assigned to perform services which will place them in contact with students.
NOTE: Contact with students includes and is not limited to physical, verbal or virtual (online) contact.
Vendor applicants who are compliant with AB1610/Education Code Section 45125.1 will be required to provide additional information to provide evidence of meeting this requirement. Vendor applicants who are not compliant will be required to have ALL employees be fingerprinted by the Department of Justice (DOJ) to clear a background check using a PCI issued DOJ Request for Live Scan Service form at the applicant’s expense. Forms will be mailed to the vendor upon receipt of the application (if needed).
Being an Active Vendor with PCI will allow the vendor to bill PCI’s family of schools for the services provided to students by way of Purchase Orders and Invoices. Services must take place between the first and last days of the school year. Vendor applicants are required to provide a copy of their W-9 in order for PCI to remit any payment. A copy of the W-9 Form can be found under Documents located below the page navigation on the right.
Please find below PCI's Active Vendor Protocols and Invoice Requirements for the 2017-2018 school year.
Please note that PCI is no longer requiring current Active Vendors to reapply each school year. Instead, we are requesting current Active Vendors to update PCI with any changes to their services and business information. Changes can be made at the PCI Active Vendor Update page. All services should still continue to take place between the first and last day of each school year. In the event that an Active Vendor should decide to be removed from our Active Vendor List, Active Vendors may do so by completing the request at the PCI Vendor Removal page.
