The Eastern Kentucky Exposition Center intends to award a contract to the vendor, whose offer, conforming to the solicitation, is the most advantageous on the basis of "best value" for all products, services and requirements contained herein. An agency evaluation committee, or a designated individual, will evaluate the informat ion provided by the vendor(s) in response to the established measurable criteria contained in the solicitation. The Eastern Kentucky Exposition Center reserves the right to delete minor items if deter mined to be in the best interest of the Eastern Kentucky Exposition Center and supported in writ ing by a determination and finding (D&F). The measurable criteria are added together to determine the vendor’s total score. The vendor with the highest score has the highest ranking. Award is made to the vendor with the highest ranking. If there is only one best value response to the solicitat ion, the evaluation process may be waived and award may be made to the only responsive, responsible vendor. Criteria Price Delivery Time Service Response (Delivery) Time Experience 60 points 20 points 10 points 10 points

Each vendor is responsible for submitting all relevant, factual and correct information with their offer to enable the evaluator(s) to afford each vendor the maximum score based on the available data submitted by the vendor. The information will be furnished in the spaces provided below. If adequate space is not available, the vendor must attach additional information that clearly cross -references the appropriate location in the solicitation (i.e. page number, paragraph, subject, etc.).

Price (60 points) - The bidder with the lowest price receives the maximum score. Other bidders will be allocated points on a prorated basis by dividing their price into the lowest price and multiplying that percentage by the available points, i.e. assume $40,000 is the low offer, then $40,000/$40,000 = 1.00 x 60 = 60 points and assume $45,000 is the next low offer, then $40, 000/ $45, 000 = .89 x 60 = 53.33. Do not place your bid response for pricing information in the table above containing: “Code, Criteria Description, Weight and Vendor Response.” This table is reserved for electronic bidding. All pricing information shall be placed in the “Unit Price” space provid ed for Line Item 0001. Failure to provide this pricing information in the spac e provided may render the bid non -responsive. Delivery Time (20 points) - The bidder with the fastest delivery time will receive the maximum score. Other bidders will be allocated points on a prorated basis by dividing the fastest vendor’s time by the next best vendor’s time and multiplying that percentage by the available points. For this example, assume 10 days is the best delivery and 20 days is the next best delivery, then, 10/ 10 = 1.00 x 20 = 20 points, and 10/20 = .5 x 20 = 10 points. Bidder's Delivery time aft er receipt of award to full delivery/installation of items: _________ days The bidder agrees that when delivery is not made within the cont racted due date, one percent (1% ) per day will be deducted from the vendor’s invoice for each day the vendor fails to meet the contracted delivery date.

Service Response Time (10 points) - Service Response time is further described as period of time from initial contact from Center to Vendor requesting repair or replacement of damaged items. The bidder wit h the fastest service response time will receive the maximum score. Other bidders will be allocated points on a prorated basis by dividing the fastest vendor’s time by the next best vendor’s time and multiplying that percent age by the available points. For this example, assume 10 days is the best delivery and 20 days is the next best delivery, then, 10/10 = 1.00 x 40 = 40 points, and 10/20 = .5 x 40 = 20 points. Bidder's service response time after receipt of request for repair or replac ement: _________ days

Experience (10 points) B IDDERS A RE REQUIRE D TO HAVE BEEN IN BUS INESS A MINIMUM OF THREE YEARS. Bidders who have been in business for less than three years are not eligible to bid. The bidders with the highest Years-In-Business response will score 10 points. The next best years offer is scored by dividing the larger figure into the lesser, and multiplying the possible points by the resulting factor. For score calculation, a maximum of 10 years will be considered. For example if one bidder has 12 years and another bidder 10 years; they both receive 10 points, having either met or exceed the maximum for scoring. A bidder with 8 years in business would receive 4 points. (10/8 = .80 X 10 = 8 Points.) The Eastern Kent ucky Exposition Center reserves the right to require any bidder to provide documentation of any claim of years-in-business.

Rev. (01-96) STANDA RD ATTACHM ENTS M ENU CHOICE 08 Key=CODE OF ETHICS -------------------------------------------------------------------*** CURRENT OR FORM ER STATE EMPLOYEE SEEKING *** *** TO DO BUSINESS WITH THE STATE? * YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THESE LAWS. * In the 1992 regular legislative session, the General Assembly passed Senate Bill 63 (codified as KRS 11A), the Executive Branch Code of Eth ics, which applies, in part, to current and former state officials and employees of the executive branch. The Code was amended during the 1994 Legislat ive Session. 1. Current State Employees Seeking to Do Business With the State KRS 11A.040(4) Provides: (4) No public servant shall knowingly himself or through any business in which he o wns or controls an interest of more than five percent (5%), or by any other person for his use or benefit or on his account, undertake , execute, hold, or enjoy, in who le or in part, any contract, agreement, lease, sale, or purchase made, entered into, awarded, or granted by any state agency. This provision shall not apply to a contract, purchase, or good faith negotiation made pursuant to KRS Chapter 416 relat ing to eminent domain or to agreements which may d irectly o r indirectly involve public funds disbursed through entitlement programs. 2. Former State Officers and Elected Officials Seeking Emp loy ment Fro m Entities Who Do business Wit h the State KRS 11A.040(6) Provides: No present or former officer o r public servant listed in KRS 11A.010(9) (a) to (i) shall, within six (6) months following termination of h is office or emp loy ment, accept emp loyment, co mpensation, or other economic ben efit fro m any person or business that contracts or does business with the state in matters in wh ich he was directly involved during the last 36 months of his tenure. This provision shall not prohibit an indiv idual fro m returning to the same business, firm, occupation, or profession in which he was involved prior to taking office or beginning his term of emp loy ment, provided that, for a period of six (6) months, he personally refrains fro m wo rking on any matter in which he was directly involved during the last 36 months of his tenure in state government. This subsection shall not prohibit the performance of ministerial functions including, but not limited to, filing tax returns, filing applications for permits or licenses, or filing incorporation papers. 3. FORM ER STATE EM PLOYEES WHO SEEK TO REGISTER AS LOBBYISTS. KRS 11A.040(7) p rovides: A former public servant shall not act as a lobbyist or lobbyist's principal for a period of one (1) year after the latter of: (A) The date of leaving office or terminat ion of employ ment; or (B) The date the term of office exp ires to wh ich the public servant was elected. 4. FORM ER STATE EM PLOYEES CONTEMPLATING REPRESENTATION OF ANOTHER BEFORE A STATE A GENCY KRS 11A.040(8) p rovides: A former public servant shall not represent a person in a matter before a state agency in which the former public servant was directly involved, for a period of one (1) year after the latter of:

(A) The date of leaving office or terminat ion of employ ment; or (B) The date the term of o ffice exp ires to which the public servant was elected. "OR BY ANY OTHER PERSONS FOR HIS USE OR BENEFIT" includes spouse. *** DEFINITIONS *** "OR BY ANY OTHER PERSON FOR HIS USE OR BENEFIT" includes spouse. "DOES BUSINESS WITH" also includes any regulatory relationship between a state agency and a business, utility or person regulated by the state. "MATTERS IN W HICH HE WAS DIRECTLY INVOLVED" applies only to matters on which the former emp loyee personally worked or over which the employee had some authority. "LOBBYIST" also includes executive agency lobbyists --those persons attempting to influence a decision of an executive agency official concerning state expenditures. "REPRESENT" means to attend an agency proceeding, write a letter, or co mmunicate with an employee of an agency on behalf of someone else. "IN WHICH HE WAS DIRECTLY INVOLVED" modifies the word " matter" and not the words "state agency". In other words the prohibition operates to prohibit employees fro m representing individuals in matters in which the employee was directly involved while the employee was at the state agency. The employee would be permitted to represent individuals before the state agency so long as the subject matter of the representation was not something in which the employee was directly involved while at the state agency. These laws are intended to promote public confidence in the integrity of state government and to declare as public policy the idea that state employees should view their work as a public t rust and not a way to o btain private benefits. If you worked for the executive branch of state government within the past year, or were elected to an executive branch term o f office which exp ired within the past year, you may be subject to the prohibitions of the law. IN CASE OF DOUBT, THE LAW PERM ITS YOU TO REQUEST AN ADVISORY OPINION FROM THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH ETHICS COMMISSION CAPITOL A NNEX, FRANKFORT, KENTUCKY 40601 (502) 564-7954.
