Increases (or decreases), if granted, shall be in increments of full cents per purchase unit only and shall be based on the monthly Producer Price Indexes (PPI) published by the Bureau of Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor using combined cumulative data with 50% weighting from Industry Data Series ID: #PCU311---311---, Industry: Food manufacturing, Product: Food manufacturing, using the final version data available at the following web address: http://data.bls.gov/cgi-bin/dsrv and 50% weighting from Industry Data Series ID: #PCU48412-48412, Industry: General freight trucking, long-distance, Product: General freight trucking, long-distance, using the final version data available at the following web address: http://data.bls.gov/cgi-bin/dsrv. Requests for escalation must be in writing 60 days prior to renewal and include documentation of baseline cost and escalated cost. The School District will review the appropriate annual data and send a report to the contractor(s) concerning the calculations derived for granting or not granting increases as may be applicable. The decision for granting increases (or decreases) shall rest solely with the School District. Price adjustments will be calculated by using the simple percentage method of calculation. Calculations shall be according to the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Producer Price Indexes, titles Escalation Guide for Contracting Parties, using the latest available version of the Producer Price Index data published, final version. For Fee for Service bid prices, price adjustments will be applied to the processing fee per case. For Net Off Invoice bid prices, price adjustments will be applied to the net price per case. The NOI bid price (commodity benchmark price) to distributor per case can be determined by adding the current value of donated food per case as established with USDA to the adjusted net price per case. If the Department of Labor should discontinue the above indexes, then an index will be selected that is mutually agreeable to both parties. If no agreement can be reached, then bid/contract will terminate at the end of its current term. Should the Series ID and/or title of PPI change, the Industry and Product and Commodity Group and Item shall remain constant. To illustrate, suppose that the contract escalation clause refers to 50% from Industry Data Series ID: #PCU311---311---, Industry: Food manufacturing, Product: Food manufacturing index and 50% from the Industry Data Series ID: #PCU48412-48412, Industry: General freight trucking, long-distance, Product: General freight trucking, long-distance, index. Also suppose that a price adjustment is being requested in January, 2009 for the following school year and the latest final version of the Producer Price Index published is for the month of October, 2008. The Food manufacturing data index was 176.4 in October, 2008. A year prior when the base price was established or the last price adjustment was made, the figure was 176.4 for October, 2007. This represents an increase of .5488 in the Food manufacturing data index as shown.

Index at time of calculation (October, 2008) Divided by index at time base price was set Add the two weighted indexes together (0.5488 + 0.5278) for a total of 1.08. This means that the base price should be increased by 1.08. To proceed: Fee for service per case or net price per case Equals adjusted fee for service or net price per case
