or fraud and that they have not offered or received any kickbacks or inducements from any other bidder, supplier, manufacturer
or subcontractor in connection with their bid, and that they have not conferred on any public employee having official
responsibility for this procurement transaction any payment, loan, subscription, advance, deposit of money, services or anything
of more than nominal value, present or promised, unless consideration of substantially equal or greater value was exchanged.
E. IMMIGRATION REFORM AND CONTROL ACT OF 1986: By entering into a written contract with the Commonwealth
of Virginia, the Contractor certifies that the Contractor does not, and shall not during the performance of the contract for goods
and services in the Commonwealth, knowingly employ an unauthorized alien as defined in the federal Immigration Reform
and Control Act of 1986.
F. DEBARMENT STATUS: By submitting their bids, bidders certify that they are not currently debarred by the Commonwealth
of Virginia from submitting bids on contracts for the type of goods and/or services covered by this solicitation, nor are they an
agent of any person or entity that is currently so debarred.

of the United States and the Commonwealth of Virginia, relating to the particular goods or services purchased or acquired by
the Commonwealth of Virginia under said contract.

reserves the right to decide, on a case by case basis, in its sole discretion, whether to reject such a bid as nonresponsive. As a
precondition to its acceptance, the Commonwealth may, in its sole discretion, request that the bidder withdraw or modify

I. CLARIFICATION OF TERMS: If any prospective bidder has questions about the specifications or other solicitation
documents, the prospective bidder should contact the buyer whose name appears on the face of the solicitation no later than
five working days before the due date. Any revisions to the solicitation will be made only by addendum issued by the buyer.
J. PAYMENT:
1. To Prime Contractor:
a. Invoices for items ordered, delivered and accepted shall be submitted by the contractor directly to the
payment address shown on the purchase order/contract. All invoices shall show the state contract number and/or
purchase order number; social security number (for individual contractors) or the federal employer identification number
(for proprietorships, partnerships, and corporations).
b. Any payment terms requiring payment in less than 30 days will be regarded as requiring payment 30 days after invoice
or delivery, whichever occurs last. This shall not affect offers of discounts for payment in less than 30 days, however.
c. All goods or services provided under this contract or purchase order, that are to be paid for with public funds, shall be
billed by the contractor at the contract price, regardless of which public agency is being billed.
d. The following shall be deemed to be the date of payment: the date of postmark in all cases where payment is made by
mail, or the date of offset when offset proceedings have been instituted as authorized under the Virginia Debt Collection
Act.
e. Unreasonable Charges. Under certain emergency procurements and for most time and material purchases, final job
costs cannot be accurately determined at the time orders are placed. In such cases, contractors should be put on notice
that final payment in full is contingent on a determination of reasonableness with respect to all invoiced charges.
Charges which appear to be unreasonable will be researched and challenged, and that portion of the invoice held in
abeyance until a settlement can be reached. Upon determining that invoiced charges are not reasonable, the
Commonwealth shall promptly notify the contractor, in writing, as to those charges which it considers unreasonable and
the basis for the determination. A contractor may not institute legal action unless a settlement cannot be reached within
thirty (30) days of notification. The provisions of this section do not relieve an agency of its prompt payment obligations
with respect to those charges which are not in dispute (Code of Virginia, § 2.2-4363).
2. To Subcontractors:
a. A contractor awarded a contract under this solicitation is hereby obligated:
(1) To pay the subcontractor(s) within seven (7) days of the contractor’s receipt of payment from the Commonwealth
for the proportionate share of the payment received for work performed by the subcontractor(s) under the contract;
or
(2) To notify the agency and the subcontractor(s), in writing, of the contractor’s intention to withhold payment and
the reason.
b. The contractor is obligated to pay the subcontractor(s) interest at the rate of one percent per month (unless otherwise
provided under the terms of the contract) on all amounts owed by the contractor that remain unpaid seven (7) days
following receipt of payment from the Commonwealth, except for amounts withheld as stated in (2) above. The date
of mailing of any payment by U. S. Mail is deemed to be payment to the addressee. These provisions apply to each
sub-tier contractor performing under the primary contract. A contractor’s obligation to pay an interest charge to a
subcontractor may not be construed to be an obligation of the Commonwealth.
3. Each prime contractor who wins an award in which provision of a SWAM procurement plan is a condition to the award,
shall deliver to the contracting agency or institution, on or before request for final payment, evidence and certification
of compliance (subject only to insubstantial shortfalls and to shortfalls arising from subcontractor default) with the
SWAM procurement plan. Final payment under the contract in question may be withheld until such certification is

delivered and, if necessary, confirmed by the agency or institution, or other appropriate penalties may be assessed in
lieu of withholding such payment.
4. The Commonwealth of Virginia encourages contractors and subcontractors to accept electronic and credit card
payments.

L. QUALIFICATIONS OF BIDDERS: The Commonwealth may make such reasonable investigations as deemed proper and
necessary to determine the ability of the bidder to perform the services/furnish the goods and the bidder shall furnish to the
Commonwealth all such information and data for this purpose as may be requested. The Commonwealth reserves the right to
inspect bidder’s physical facilities prior to award to satisfy questions regarding the bidder’s capabilities. The Commonwealth
further reserves the right to reject any bid if the evidence submitted by, or investigations of, such bidder fails to satisfy the
Commonwealth that such bidder is properly qualified to carry out the obligations of the contract and to provide the services
and/or furnish the goods contemplated therein.
M. TESTING AND INSPECTION: The Commonwealth reserves the right to conduct any test/inspection it may deem advisable
to assure goods and services conform to the specifications.

consent of the Commonwealth.
O. CHANGES TO THE CONTRACT: Changes can be made to the contract in any of the following ways:
1. The parties may agree in writing to modify the terms, conditions, or scope of the contract. Any additional goods or services
to be provided shall be of a sort that is ancillary to the contract goods or services, or within the same broad product or service
categories as were included in the contract award. Any increase or decrease in the price of the contract resulting from such
modification shall be agreed to by the parties as a part of their written agreement to modify the scope of the contract.

Agency of the adjustment to be sought, and before proceeding to comply with the notice, shall await the Purchasing Agency's
written decision affirming, modifying, or revoking the prior written notice. If the Purchasing Agency decides to issue a notice
that requires an adjustment to compensation, the contractor shall be compensated for any additional costs incurred as the
result of such order and shall give the Purchasing Agency a credit for any savings. Said compensation shall be determined
by one of the following methods:
a. By mutual agreement between the parties in writing; or
b. By agreeing upon a unit price or using a unit price set forth in the contract, if the work to be done can be expressed in
units, and the contractor accounts for the number of units of work performed, subject to the Purchasing Agency’s right
to audit the contractor’s records and/or to determine the correct number of units independently; or
c. By ordering the contractor to proceed with the work and keep a record of all costs incurred and savings realized. A
markup for overhead and profit may be allowed if provided by the contract. The same markup shall be used for
determining a decrease in price as the result of savings realized. The contractor shall present the Purchasing Agency
with all vouchers and records of expenses incurred and savings realized. The Purchasing Agency shall have the right
