the specifications and shall fully inform themselves as to all existing conditions and limitations. The
bidder shall indicate in the bid the sum to cover the cost of all items included on the bid form.
2. PREPARATION OF BID-The bid shall be legibly prepared in ink or typed. If a unit price or

with ink. The bid shall be legally signed and the complete address of the bidder given thereon.
All bids shall be tightly sealed in an envelope plainly marked SEALED BID and identified by

will be so documented and resealed. The Purchasing Division will maintain and guarantee
confidentiality of the contents until the specified opening date and time. Bids submitted
electronically will not be accepted.
3. EXPLANATION TO BIDDERS-Any binding explanation desired by a bidder regarding the
meaning or interpretation of the Invitation for Bids (IFB) and attachments must be requested in
writing, at least 5 business days before the bid opening so a reply may reach all prospective
bidders prior to the submission of bids. Any information given to a prospective bidder concerning
the IFB will be furnished to all prospective bidders as an amendment or addendum to the IFB if
such information would be prejudicial to uninformed bidders. Receipt of amendments or addenda
by a bidder must be acknowledged in the bid by attachment, or by letter or fax received before the
time set for opening of bids. Oral explanation or instructions given prior to the opening will not be
binding.
4. CASH DISCOUNTS-Discount offered for payment of less than thirty (30) days will not be
considered in evaluating bids for award. Offered discounts of less than thirty (30) days will be taken
if payment is made within the discount period, even though not considered in evaluation of the bid.
5. WITHDRAWAL OF BIDS-Bids may be withdrawn in person by a bidder or authorized
representative, provided their identity is made known and a receipt is signed for the bid, but only if
the withdrawal is made prior to the exact time set for receipt of bid. No bid may be withdrawn for
at least ninety (90) days after bid opening.
6. ALTERNATE BIDS-bidders are cautioned that any alternate bid, unless specifically requested or
any changes, insertions or omissions to the terms and conditions, specifications or any other
requirement of this IFB may be considered non-responsive, and at the option of the City, result in
rejection of the alternate bid.
7. LATE BIDS-Any bid received at the office designated herein after the exact time specified for
receipt will not be considered. (Note: The City reserves the right to consider bids that have been
determined by the City to be received late due to mishandling by the City after receipt of the bid and
no award has been made.)

prevail.
