Sealed bids must be submitted in SEALED ENVELOPES, addressed to the Purchasing
Agent, Town Hall, 100 Fairway Drive, North Kingstown, Rhode Island 02852, and clearly
marked with the name of the item bid, and the date and time of opening. Bids will be received
by the Purchasing Agent up to the specified time as noted on the Invitation to Bid, and publicly
opened and read aloud at the specified time.
It is the bidder’s responsibility to see that his bid is delivered within the time and at the
place prescribed. Proposals received prior to the time of opening will be securely kept
unopened. No responsibility will attach to any officer or person for the premature opening of a
proposal not properly addressed and identified.
Any bid received after the time and date specified shall not be considered, by messenger
or by mail, even if it is determined by the Town that such non-arrival before the time set for
opening was due solely to delay in the mails for which the bidder is not responsible. Conditional
or qualified bids will not be accepted.
ARTICLE 2. PREPARATION OF BID
Each bid must be submitted on the prescribed form. All blank spaces for bid prices must
be filled in, in ink or typewritten, both in words and figures. Erasures or other changes must be
explained or noted over the signature of the bidder.
Each bid must be submitted in sealed envelopes, clearly labeled, so as to guard against
opening prior to the time set therefore.
The Town may consider any bid not prepared and submitted in accordance with the
provisions hereof and reserves the right to reject any or all proposals in whole or in part, toward
any item, group of items, or total bid; to waive any technical defect or formality in same, or to
accept any proposal deemed to be in the best interest of the Town.

ARTICLE 4. WITHDRAWAL OF BIDS

ARTICLE 5. QUALIFICATIONS OF THE BIDDER
The Town reserves the right to request each bidder to present evidence that he is

considered from bidders who are unable to show that they are normally engaged in purveying the
type of product or equipment specified in the bid proposal.
To receive full consideration, the bidder must submit literature and necessary details,
when applicable, on the material or service he proposes to furnish in order that the Town may

ARTICLE 6. OBLIGATIONS OF THE BIDDER
At the time of opening of bids, each bidder will be presumed to have inspected the
Specifications and Contract Documents (including all addenda) which has been sent to the
address given by such bidder. The failure or omission of any bidder to receive or examine any
form, instrument, or document shall in no way relieve any bidder from any obligation in respect
to his bid.
Any exceptions or deviations from the provisions contained in this Specification must be
explained in detail and attached to proposal. If such deviations do not depart from the intent of
this notice and are in the best interest of the Town, the proposal will receive careful
consideration.
ARTICLE 7. “OR EQUAL” BIDDING
The Town intends to permit liberal scope in bidding and specifically does not intend to limit
bidding to any one make or model. Whenever a material, article or piece of equipment is
identified by reference to manufacturers' or vendors' names, trade names, catalogue numbers,
etc., it is intended merely to establish a standard; and any proposed material, article, or
equipment of other manufacturers and vendors which will perform adequately the duties imposed
by the general design will be considered equally acceptable provided it is in the opinion of the
Town to be of equal substance and function.
ARTICLE 8. PRICES
Bidders shall state the proposed price in the manner as designated in the Bid Proposal
Form. In the event that there is a discrepancy between unit prices and the extended totals, the
unit prices shall govern. In the event that there is a discrepancy between the price written in
