or proposals.
6.) The University of Southern Mississippi reserves the right to reject any and all bids, to
waive any informality in bids, and unless otherwise specified by the bidders, to accept
any items on the bid. If the bidder fails to state the time within which bids must be
accepted, it is understood and agreed that The University of Southern Mississippi shall
have 60 days to accept. The University of Southern Mississippi reserves the right to make
an award to this bid on an all or none basis, or on a line by line basis, whichever serves
the best interest of The University of Southern Mississippi.
7.) Contracts and purchases will be made or entered into with the lowest, responsible bidder
meeting specifications.
8.) A written purchase order or contract award mailed or otherwise furnished to the
successful bidder within the time of acceptance specified in the Invitation for Bid results
in a binding contract without further action by either party. The contract shall not be
assignable by the vendor in whole or in part without the written consent of The

participants will be prohibited from obtaining any information relative to the bid until the
official award has been made.

for a period of 24 months.
11.) No addendum will be issued within a period of two (2) working days prior to the time

within the two-day period prior to the bid opening, the bid date will be reset giving
bidders ample time to answer the addendum.
12.) Alternate bids, unless specifically requested or allowed, will not be considered.
13.) Bid openings will be conducted open to the public. However, they will serve only to
open the bids. No discussion will be entered into with any vendor as to the quality or
provisions of the specifications, and no award will be made either stated or implied at the
bid opening. After the close of the bid opening meeting, the bids will be considered to be
in the evaluation process and will not be available for review by bidders. Proposal

for public inspection.
14.) Prices quoted shall be firm for the term of the contract or for the stated time of
acceptance.
15.) The bidder understands that The University of Southern Mississippi is an equal
opportunity employer and, therefore, maintains a policy which prohibits unlawful
discrimination based on race, color, creed, sex, age, national origin, physical handicap,
disability, or any other such discrimination; and the bidder, by signing this bid, agrees
during the term of agreement that the bidder will strictly adhere to this policy in its
employment practices and provision of products or services.
16.) Bidders must upon request of The University of Southern Mississippi furnish satisfactory
evidence of their ability to furnish products or services in accordance with the terms and
conditions of these specifications. The University of Southern Mississippi reserves the
right to make the final determination as to the bidder’s ability.

on the solicitation at:
The University of Southern Mississippi
118 College Drive #5003
Hattiesburg, MS 39406-0001
Phone: (601) 266-4131
18.) All items must equal or exceed the specifications listed. The absence of detail
specifications or the omission of detail description shall be recognized as meaning that
only the best commercial practices are to prevail and that only first quality materials and
workmanship are to be used.
19.) It is the intent of the specifications to obtain a product that will adequately meet the needs
of the user while promoting the greatest extent of competition that is practicable. It is the
responsibility of the prospective bidder to review the entire Invitation to Bid packet and
to notify The University of Southern Mississippi if the Specifications, Instructions,
General, or Special Conditions are formulated in a manner which would unnecessarily
restrict competition.
20.) It shall be incumbent upon the bidders to understand the specifications. Any requests for
clarifications shall be in writing and shall be submitted to our Procurement Services
office at least five (5) days prior to the time and date set for the bid opening, unless
otherwise noted in the bid or proposal specifications.
21.) The minimum specifications are used to set a standard and in no case are used with the
intention to discriminate against any manufacturer. Bidders should note the name and the
manufacturer and model number of the product they propose to furnish and submit
descriptive literature.
22.) Trade names, brand names, and/or manufacturers information used in these
specifications are for the purpose of establishing quality, unless otherwise noted. Bids on
products of other qualified manufacturers are acceptable, provided they are demonstrated
as equal to those specified in construction, design and suitability. Each bidder shall
submit with his bid a complete brochure with pictures on each item and shall point out
specifically any deviations from the specified items. Failure to do so may disqualify any
bid. Please bid as specified or an approved equal.
23.) A copy of the manufacturer’s standard guarantee/warranty shall accompany and become
a part of this bid.
24.) There are no federal or state laws that prohibit bidders from submitting a bid lower than a
price or bid given to the U.S. Government. Bidders may bid lower than U.S.
Government contract price without any liability as The University of Southern
Mississippi is exempt from the provisions of the Robinson-Patman Act and other related
laws. In addition, the U.S. Government has no provisions in any of its purchasing
arrangements with bidders whereby a lower price to The University of Southern
Mississippi must automatically be given to the U.S. Government.
25.) All invoices, unless noted otherwise, are to be billed to:
The University of Southern Mississippi
Accounts Payable
118 College Drive #5104
Hattiesburg, MS 39406-0001
26.) All equipment bid shall be of current production and of the latest design and
construction.
27.) Where all, or part(s), of the bid is requested on a unit price basis, both the unit prices and
the extension of the unit prices constitute a basis of determining the lowest responsible
and responsive bidder. In cases of error in the extension of price, the unit price will
govern.
28.) Should the University of Southern Mississippi close due to inclement weather conditions,
or any other unforeseen events on the bid opening date, sealed bids will open the
following business day at the same time and location.
29.) As an alternative to traditional sealed bids in envelopes, the University of Southern
Mississippi is capable of receiving electronic bid responses. While this option is
available, it is not required and we ask that all potential respondents keep in mind that
with any electronic system there could be delays or glitches with the submission process;
therefore the University highly encourages traditional sealed bids which are either mailed
or submitted in person. Should a vendor choose to submit their response electronically,
please follow the instructions below using the following website:
https://www.ms.gov/dfa/contract_bid_search/Home/Sell. On this site you will find
helpful links to procurement opportunities, as well as a link to supplier registration. If
not already registered in this system, potential bidders will first need to click on ‘Supplier
