The lowest responsive Kalamazoo County bidder whose bid is not low but falls within 2% of the lowest responsive bid is
afforded the opportunity to become the successful bidder if it agrees to reduce its bid to match the lowest responsive bid.
The City of Kalamazoo is the sole determiner whether a bidder is responsible, qualifies as a Kalamazoo County bidder,
and if its bid is responsive to the City’s specifications, terms and conditions.
If the lowest Kalamazoo County bidder chooses not to match the lowest bid, the next lowest responsive Kalamazoo
County bidder whose bid falls within 2% of the lowest bid, is given the opportunity to match the lowest responsive bid.
To qualify as a Kalamazoo County bidder, the bidder must meet both the following criteria:
1. Have a physical presence in Kalamazoo County by maintaining a permanent office, factory or other facility in
Kalamazoo County with employees working in Kalamazoo County.
2. Have paid real or personal property taxes related to said business to the City of Kalamazoo, County of
Kalamazoo or other municipal corporation within Kalamazoo County in the previous tax year, except that a non-
profit entity need not meet this requirement.
This local preference policy applies only to purchases for materials, supplies, capital outlay, and services for
maintenance, repair or operation of City facilities that are over $25,000. If more than 50% of the contract is sub-
contracted to firms located outside of Kalamazoo County that bid does not qualify for the local preference policy outlined
above. The local preference policy will not apply if prohibited by law. The Purchasing Agent has the authority to finally
determine if the bidder qualifies as a Kalamazoo County bidder as set forth herein. The Purchasing Agent may take into
account the permanency of the business in Kalamazoo, and whether the business appears to be claiming to be a
Kalamazoo County business solely or primarily to qualify as a Kalamazoo County business under this Resolution, and
any other material factors.
If you qualify as a Kalamazoo County bidder and wish to be considered for the local preference provisions as provided
above please certify that fact by providing the information requested below and attesting to its accuracy.
