furnish this documentation will be cause to reject any bid applying thereto.

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.

shall be quoted as standard colors, NOT colors which require upcharges or special handling. Unspecified fabrics or vinyls should be

refuse to accept the items and demand correct shipment without penalty, subject to other legal remedies.

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,

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withdrawn, the result will be that all of the bids submitted by that offeror will be withdrawn, however, nothing herein prohibits a vendor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.

3. Award Criteria

       Price offers are to be made on the attached Price Sheet(s). Award shall be made on the basis of lowest and

       or equipment, and any other factor which could reasonably be considered as relevant to successful
       performance as defined in this ITB. The successful bidder should be an established business for the item(s)

4. General Information

       The specifications of this ITB are not intended to be restrictive to any manufacturer or distributor.

       not restrict the bidding process, but serve to be instructive as to type and class of goods or services
       acceptable to Harris County. Any product of equal or greater quality will be considered. If an equivalent or
       superior product is bid, evidence of performance, stability, operational efficiency should be included with
       bid. If other than specified type or design of product is bid, bidder must, at request of Harris County and
       within three (3) working of written request, make offered item(s) available in a convenient location for
       inspection and/or demonstration of the merits of the item(s) by a means acceptable to Harris County.

       quantity(ies) estimated in this ITB. Harris County will not be liable for any effort, delivery, or performance
       without having issued a purchase order. Effort, delivery, and/or performance made without a purchase

       of canceling any contract, whether implied or expressed.

       order, and will be made within the time period(s) indicated on the submitted bid, unless subsequently

       damage during shipping and handling. Any damaged item(s) must be replaced in kind by the contractor at
       no additional charge to Harris County.

7. Payment

       quantity, part number, description, price, applicable discount (if any), labor charges showing time

       Count reserves the right to audit all payments made to the contractor. If overpayment is determined,
       recovery will be sought.

subsequent contract, if any, with Harris County, the affect of the related items cannot be extended
and totaled in determining the lowest bidder since an estimated usage is unknown. Purchases by
Harris County of related items should not exceed 20% of the total annual purchases under
the contract.
