Need advice for Janitorial Bid

I have been working for a company that now wants me to put in a bid to provide all janitorial cleaning. I have somethings already such as my check list, simple contract terms and of course insurance and business license and so forth but I am not sure what to charge them. Also the company will supply all the cleaning supplies. As it stands right now I am an hourly employee and the most one can make with their company per hr is 16.70 per hour. Currently I make 14.00 per hour and work 30hrs per week. should I base my bid on what I make per hour? I can complete all job task within 4 hrs but I generally like to take my time but I do understand contracting the job will mean that my time is money so it is imperative that I get in/out as quickly as possible while still providing a quality service. How do you all charge? BTW>>>>I am in missouri

If you would be content at $14.00 per hour then that's what you should charge the customer. No one needs to tell you how much money you should want to make. I would rather make at least $20.00 per hour, especially if I were providing insurance and labor.
