2.0 - Instructions and Notifications to Bidders
It is the vendor's responsibility to examine all specifications and conditions
thoroughly, and comply fully with specifications and all attached terms and
conditions. Vendors must comply with all Federal, State, and City laws,
ordinances and regulations, and meet any and all registration requirements
where required for contractors as set forth by the State of Rhode Island. Failure
to make a complete submission as described herein may result in a rejection of the
proposal.
All costs associated with developing or submitting a proposal in response to this
Request, or to provide oral or written clarification of its content shall be borne by
the bidder. The City of Pawtucket assumes no responsibility for these costs.
A submittal may be withdrawn by written request to the Purchasing Agent by the
proposer prior to the stated RFP deadline.
Prior to the proposal deadline established for this RFP, changes may be made to
a proposal already received by the City if that vendor makes a request to the
Purchasing Agent, in writing, to do so. No changes to a proposal shall be made
after the RFP deadline.
Proposals are considered to be irrevocable for a period of not less than ninety
(90) days following the opening date, and may not be withdrawn, except with the
express written permission of the Purchasing Agent. Should any vendor object
to this condition, the vendor must provide objection through a question and/or
complaint to the Purchasing Agent prior to the proposal deadline.
All pricing submitted will be considered to be firm and fixed unless otherwise
indicated herein.
The vendor has full responsibility to ensure that the proposal arrives at the
Purchasing Division Office prior to the deadline set out herein. The City assumes
no responsibility for delays caused by the U.S. Postal Service or any other delivery
service. Postmarking by the due date will not substitute for actual receipt of
response by the due date. Proposals arriving after the deadline may be returned,
unopened, to the vendor, or may simply be declared non-responsive and not
subject to evaluation, at the sole discretion of the Purchasing Agent. For the
purposes of this requirement, the official time and date shall be that of the
time clock in the City of Pawtucket’s Purchasing Office.
It is intended that an award pursuant to this Request will be made to a prime
contractor, who will assume responsibility for all aspects of the work. Joint venture
and cooperative proposals will not be considered, but subcontracts are permitted,
provided that their use is clearly indicated in the bidder's proposal, and the
subcontractor(s) proposed to be used are identified in the proposal.
Bidders are advised that all materials submitted to the City of Pawtucket for
consideration in response to this Request for Proposals shall be considered to be
public records as defined in Title 38 Chapter 2 of the Rhode Island General
4
Laws, without exception, and may be released for inspection immediately upon
request once an award has been made.
Vendors are responsible for errors and omissions in their proposals. No such
error or omission shall diminish the vendor's obligations to the City.
The City reserves the right to reject any or all proposals, or portions thereof, at
any time, with no penalty. The City also has the right to waive immaterial defects
and minor irregularities in any submitted proposal at its sole discretion. All material
submitted in response to this RFP shall become the property of the City of
Pawtucket upon delivery to the Purchasing Agent.
There is no official, public opening of proposals. The City asks that companies
refrain from requesting proposal information concerning other respondents until an
intention to award is determined, as a measure to best protect the solicitation
process, particularly in the event of a cancellation or re-solicitation. Proposal
materials become public information only after a contract is awarded.
