When specifications are revised, the Harris County Purchasing Department will issue an addendum addressing the nature of the change. Offerors
must sign and include it in the returned bid package.

any suit arising out of personal or property damages resulting from offeror's performance under this agreement.

SEVERABILITY

shall not affect the remaining portions of these requirements and the specifications and it is hereby declared that such remaining portions would have
been included in these requirements and the specifications as though the invalid portion had been omitted.

BONDS

without the required bid bond or cashier's check are not acceptable.

                                                                                                                                          Page 3 of 33
PRICING
Prices for all goods and/or services shall be firm for the duration of this contract and shall be stated on the Pricing/Delivery Information form. Prices
shall be all inclusive: No price changes, additions, or subsequent qualifications will be honored during the course of the contract. All prices
must be written in ink or typewritten. Pricing on all transportation, freight, drayage and other charges are to be prepaid by the contractor and
included in the bid prices. If there are any additional charges of any kind, other than those mentioned above, specified or unspecified, offeror MUST
indicate the items required and attendant costs or forfeit the right to payment for such items. Where unit pricing and extended pricing differ, unit
pricing prevails.

SILENCE OF SPECIFICATIONS
The apparent silence of specifications as to any detail, or the apparent omission from it of a detailed description concerning any point, shall be
regarded as meaning that only the best commercial practice is to prevail and that only material and workmanship of the finest quality are to be used.
All interpretations of specifications shall be made on the basis of this statement. The items furnished under this contract shall be new, unused of the
latest product in production to commercial trade and shall be of the highest quality as to materials used and workmanship. Manufacturer furnishing
these items shall be experienced in design and construction of such items and shall be an established supplier of the item bid.

SUPPLEMENTAL MATERIALS
Offerors are responsible for including all pertinent product data in the returned bid package. Literature, brochures, data sheets, specification
information, completed forms requested as part of the bid package and any other facts which may affect the evaluation and subsequent contract
award should be included. Materials such as legal documents and contractual agreements, which the offeror wishes to include as a condition of the
bid, must also be in the returned bid package. Failure to include all necessary and proper supplemental materials may be cause to reject the entire
bid.

MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEETS
Under the "Hazardous Communication Act", commonly known as the "Texas Right To Know Act", a offeror must provide to the County with each
delivery, material safety data sheets which are applicable to hazardous substances defined in the Act. Failure of the offeror to furnish this
documentation will be cause to reject any bid applying thereto.

NAME BRANDS
Specifications may reference name brands and model numbers. It is not the intent of Harris County to restrict these bids in such cases, but to
establish a desired quality level of merchandise or to meet a pre-established standard due to like existing items. Offerors may offer items of equal
stature and the burden of proof of such stature rests with offerors. Harris County shall act as sole judge in determining equality and acceptability of
products offered.

COLOR SELECTION
Determination of colors of materials is a right reserved by the using department unless otherwise specified in the bid. Unspecified colors shall be
quoted as standard colors, NOT colors which require upcharges or special handling. Unspecified fabrics or vinyls should be construed as medium
grade. If offeror fails to get color/material approvals prior to delivery of merchandise, the using department may refuse to accept the items and
demand correct shipment without penalty, subject to other legal remedies.

EVALUATION
Evaluation shall be used as a determinant as to which bid items or services are the most efficient and/or most economical for the County. It shall be
based on all factors which have a bearing on price and performance of the items in the user environment. All bids are subject to tabulation by the
Harris County Purchasing Department and recommendation to Harris County Commissioners Court. Compliance with all bid requirements, delivery
and needs of the using department are considerations in evaluating bids. Pricing is NOT the only criteria for making a recommendation. The
Harris County Purchasing Department reserves the right to contact any offeror, at any time, to clarify, verify or request information with regard to
any bid.

INSPECTIONS
Harris County reserves the right to inspect any item(s) or service location for compliance with specifications and requirements and needs of the using
department. If an offeror cannot furnish a sample of a bid item, where applicable, for review, or fails to satisfactorily show an ability to perform, the
County can reject the bid as inadequate.

TESTING
Harris County reserves the right to test equipment, supplies, material and goods bid for quality, compliance with specifications and ability to meet the
needs of the user. Demonstration units must be available for review. Should the goods or services fail to meet requirements and/or be unavailable
for evaluation, the bid is subject to rejection.

DISQUALIFICATION OF OFFEROR
Upon signing this bid document, an offeror offering to sell supplies, materials, services, or equipment to Harris County certifies that the offeror has
not violated the antitrust laws of this state codified in Texas Business and Commerce Code §15.01, et seq., as amended, or the federal antitrust laws,
and has not communicated directly or indirectly the bid made to any competitor or any other person engaged in such line of business. Any or all bids
may be rejected if the County believes that collusion exists among the offerors. Bids in which the prices are obviously unbalanced may be rejected.
If multiple bids are submitted by a offeror and after the bids are opened, one of the bids is withdrawn, the result will be that all of the bids submitted
by that offeror will be withdrawn, however, nothing herein prohibits a vendor from submitting multiple bids for different products or services.

time, Harris County may correct at the offeror's expense.

PURCHASE ORDER AND DELIVERY
The successful offeror shall not deliver products or provide services without a Harris County Purchase Order, signed by an authorized agent of the

merchandise to the appropriate room or place designated by the using department. Every tender or delivery of goods must fully comply with all
provisions of these requirements and the specifications including time, delivery and quality. Nonconformance shall constitute a breach which must
be rectified prior to expiration of the time for performance. Failure to rectify within the performance period will be considered cause to reject future
deliveries and cancellation of the contract by Harris County without prejudice to other remedies provided by law. Where delivery times are
critical, Harris County reserves the right to award accordingly.

CONTRACT RENEWALS
Renewals may be made ONLY by written agreement between Harris County and the offeror. Any price escalations are limited to those stated by the

TERMINATION
Harris County reserves the right to terminate the contract for default if offeror breaches any of the terms therein, including warranties of offeror or if
the offeror becomes insolvent or commits acts of bankruptcy. Such right of termination is in addition to and not in lieu of any other remedies which
Harris County may have in law or equity. Default may be construed as, but not limited to, failure to deliver the proper goods and/or services within
the proper amount of time, and/or to properly perform any and all services required to Harris County's satisfaction and/or to meet all other obligations
and requirements. Contracts may be terminated without cause upon thirty (30) days written notice to either party unless otherwise specified.

RECYCLED MATERIALS

preference application.

conflict between the terms and provisions of the County's published bid specifications, or any portion thereof, and the terms and provisions of the bid
response made by offeror, the County's bid specifications as published shall control. Furthermore, if an alteration of any kind to the County's

The following requirements and specifications supersede General Requirements where applicable.

EVALUATION AND AWARD
Bidders are required to meet all specifications stated herein. Harris County reserves the right to act as sole judge
with regard to product compliance. Items will likely be awarded on a line item basis, however, the County reserves
the right to consider all award options and make recommendations as are in its best interest.

Bidders are advised that furnishing proper goods and proper delivery are mandatory. Failure to maintain
performance for the duration of this contract will become a consideration of future awards. Although best estimates
are provided, the fluctuation of inmate population requires the flexibility to purchase more or less than the quantity
stated at the bid price. Pricing shall be provided on the attached bid sheets only. Bidder shall indicate changes or
any other conditions which might effect quality, price or delivery. The County is exempt from all special
governmental taxes including floor and process. Taxes must not be included in the bid price.

VENDOR SHALL NOT SUBSTITUTE ITEMS FOR THOSE SUBMITTED IN THIS BID AND MAY NOT
SUPPLY ITEMS OTHER THAN THOSE LISTED IN THIS BID AS PART OF THIS CONTRACT.

DEPARTMENT WISHES TO BOTAIN NONCONTRACT ITEMS, THEY ARE REQUIRED TO OBTAIN AN
APPROPRIATE PURCHASE ORDER FOR THAT PURPOSE.

Bidders must quote brands to be furnished and said brand name MUST appear on the bid sheet with the appropriate
packaging size being offered. The name brand MUST appear on the bid sheet in the space provided even if it is the
same as the brand specified. DO NOT LEAVE BLANK SPACES ON THE BID SHEET. Show any size changes
or differences, packaging differences or other condition which affects bid evaluation. A sample of any item may be
required by the County for evaluation. Unacceptable products will be rejected.

All items MUST meet USDA and Federal nutritional standards in addition to minimum specifications given. Items
found to be unsuitable will be returned to, and replaced with correct merchandise by the contractor at no additional
charge to Harris County. Failure to supply items bid will be cause for rejection upon delivery by the using
department. Termination will be exercised for continued failure of contractor to meet all contract requirements.

All prices shall be quoted FOB INSIDE DELIVERY TO ALL COUNTY JAILS. Deliveries shall be made by pre-
arrangement with a representative of each facility. This contract involves multiple delivery locations as listed
below.

delivered.

Backorders must be kept to a minimum. Vendor must notify the Food Service Manager, prior to delivery, of
