should submit with the bid response information (such as illustrations,
descriptive literature, technical data) sufficient for the University to
evaluate quality, suitability, and compliance with the specifications of the

specification submitted for a product shall be verifiable by the manufacturer.
If item(s) bid does not comply with specifications (including brand and/or

percent (10%) preference in his bid response and the bidder should state the
respective Louisiana location where each qualifying item is produced,
