A. General Conditions. Vendors are required to submit their Proposals in accordance with the following
expressed conditions:
1. Vendors shall make all investigations necessary to thoroughly inform themselves regarding the project.
No plea of ignorance by the Vendor of conditions that exist or that may hereafter exist as a result of failure

requirements of the District or the compensation to the Vendor.

Board policies, the Purchasing Department's procedures and state and federal statutes. When conflicts
between the Solicitation and these legal documents occur, the highest authority will prevail.

a request to the District for disclosure of such information, the District shall advise the Vendor of such
request in order to give the Vendor the opportunity to object to the disclosure of any of its proprietary or
confidential material. In the event of the filing of a lawsuit to compel such disclosure, the District will
tender all such material to the court for judicial determination of the issue of disclosure and the Vendor
agrees to intervene in such lawsuit to protect and assert its claims of privilege and against disclosure of
such material or waive the same. The Vendor further agrees to defend, indemnify and save and hold
harmless the District, its officers, agents and employees, from any claims, damages, expenses, losses or

under this Article including, but not limited to, prompt reimbursement to the District of all reasonable
attorney fees, costs and damages that the District may incur directly or may be ordered to pay by such
B. Clarification and Modifications in Terms and Conditions

received by the District in accordance with the Solicitation Schedule.

of Proposals. Such addenda shall be emailed to all Vendors that have notified the District of their intent to
bid on this project. The Vendor shall certify its acknowledgment of the addendum by signing the
addendum and returning it with its Proposal. In the event of conflict with the original contract documents,
addenda shall govern over all Contract Documents to the extent specified. Subsequent addenda shall
govern over prior addenda only to the extent specified.
