The City reserves the right to reject any or all proposals or waive any informality or technicality in any proposal. All bids shall hold firm for a period of sixty (60) days after the date of opening.
Bids will not be considered complete and will therefore be rejected if all required Bid Documents are not returned and complete at the time of the bid opening.
Bids are to be quoted "All or None" unless otherwise stipulated. A partial quote will be rejected.
k. LOCAL VENDOR PREFERENCE: In awarding bids for public work or for the procurement of supplies or services, preference shall be given to local vendors. A "local vendor" is defined as a business having:
(1) a commercial office, store, distribution center, or other place of business located within the boundaries of the City, with an intent to remain on a permanent basis; (2) a current St. George City business license; and, (3) at least one employee physically present at the local business outlet.
All three criteria must be met in order to qualify as a local vendor. If there are no bidders who qualify as a local vendor, the same preference may then be extended to residents of Washington County under the conditions below.
If a low bid is submitted by a non-local bidder, the bid may be awarded to a local vendor if the local resident's bid is within five percent (5%) of the low non-local bid, and if the local vendor agrees, in writing, within seventy-two (72) hours after notification that he is the qualified referred bidder, to meet the low bid. Such notice shall contain the exact bid submitted by the non-local bidder, and the Purchasing Agent shall enter into no contract until seventy-two (72) hours have elapsed after notification to the local vendor. The principal place of business of a local vendor may be elsewhere as long as a local branch meeting the above criteria is present. The domicile of one or more partners, owners, associates, directors, employees or agents shall not qualify for constituting a local vendor in the absence of an actual local business outlet.
l. LICENSING: The successful bidder will be required to show proof of St. George City Business License or registration with the business license officer and shall be in compliance with Worker's Compensation rules and laws.
m. ADDENDA: All addenda shall become part of the bid document and be included in the bid at the time of the bid opening.
n. EQUIPMENT SPECIFICATIONS: All specifications contained herein are meant to be descriptive and not restrictive. All equipment being bid herein shall be new in its entirety, unless otherwise specified.
o. COMPLIANCE CERTIFICATION OF of 8 USC § 1324a FOR ALL CONTRACTS BETWEEN THE CITY OF ST. GEORGE AND A CONTRACTOR By submitting a proposal and by signing this certification and a contract with the City, Contractor certifies that it does not and will not during the performance of this contract knowingly employ, or subcontract with any entity which employs workers in violation of 8 USC § 1324a. Contractor agrees to require all subcontractors at the time they are hired for this project to sign a Certification of Legal Work Status and submit the Certification to City prior to any work being performed by the subcontractors. Contractor agrees to produce, at the City’s request, documents to verify compliance with applicable State and Federal laws. If Contractor knowingly employs workers or subcontractors in violation of 8 USC § 1324a, such violation shall be cause for unilateral cancellation of the contract between Contractor and City. In addition, Contractor may be suspended from participating in future projects with the City for a period of one (1) year. In the event this contract is terminated due to a violation of 8 USC § 1324a by Contractor or a subcontractor of Contractor, Contractor shall be
liable for any and all costs associated with such termination, including, but not limited to, any damages incurred by the City as well as attorney fees. For purposes of compliance, the City requires Contractor and subcontractors to use E-Verify to verify the employment eligibility of all employees as allowed by law and the E-Verify procedures. Contractor and subcontractors must maintain authorized documentation of the E-Verify.
