Columbus, Georgia.

be written in ink or typewritten. Figures written in pencil or erasures are not acceptable. However, mistakes may be
crossed out, corrections inserted adjacent thereto, initialed in ink by the person signing the proposal. If there are
discrepancies between unit prices quoted and extensions, the unit price will prevail. Failure to properly sign forms, in
ink, will render bid incomplete.
3. EXECUTION OF THE BID PROPOSAL. Execution of the bid proposal will indicate the bidder is familiar and in
compliance with all local laws, regulations, ordinances, site inspections, licenses, dray tags, etc.
4. BID DUE DATE. The bid submission must arrive in the Purchasing Division on or before the stated due date and
time. Upon receipt, bids will be time and date stamped. Bids will remain sealed and secured until the stated due date

7. RECEIPT OF ONE SEALED BID. In the event only one sealed bid is received, no formal bid opening shall take
place. First, the Purchasing Division shall conduct a survey of vendors to inquire of “no bid” responses and non-
responsive vendors. If, from the survey, it is determined by the Purchasing Division that specifications need revision,
the one bid received will be returned, unopened, to the responding vendor, with a letter of explanation and a new bid

and the one bid received will remain sealed until the new bid opening date. The vendor submitting the single bid will
receive a letter of explanation.
If it is determined the one bid received is from the only responsive, responsible bidder, then the bid shall be
opened by the Purchasing Division Manager or designee, in the presence of at least one other witness. The
single bid will be evaluated by the using agency for award recommendation.

applicable) in their sealed bid proposal. The vendor may provide an initialed copy of each addendum or initial the
