change. Offerors must sign it and include it in the returned proposal package.

ASSIGNMENT
The successful offeror may not assign, sell, or otherwise transfer this contract without written permission of Harris County
Commissioners Court.

AWARD
Harris County reserves the right to award this contract on the basis of LOWEST AND BEST OFFER in accordance with the
laws of the State of Texas, to waive any formality or irregularity, to make awards to more than one offeror, to reject any or all
proposals. In the event the lowest dollar offeror meeting specifications is not awarded a contract, the offeror may appear
before the Commissioners Court, Hospital District Board of Managers, the Juvenile Board or other applicable governing body
and present evidence concerning his responsibility after officially notifying the Office of the Purchasing Agent of his intent to
appear.

BONDS
If this proposal requires submission of proposal guarantee and performance bond, there will be a separate page explaining
those requirements. Offers submitted without the required proposal bond or Cashier's Check are not acceptable.

CERTIFICATION REGARDING DEBARMENT, SUSPENSION INELIGIBILITY, AND VOLUNTARY
EXCLUSION
The Contractor certifies by execution of this Contract that it is not ineligible for participation in federal or state assistance
programs under Executive Order 12549, "Debarment and Suspension." The Contractor further agrees to include this
certification in all contracts between itself and any subcontractors in connection with the services performed under this

DIGITAL FORMAT
If offeror obtained the proposal specifications in digital format in order to prepare a response, the proposal must be
submitted in hard copy according to the instructions contained in this proposal package. If, in its proposal response,
offeror makes any changes whatsoever to the County's published proposal specifications, the County's proposal
specifications as published shall control. Furthermore, if an alteration of any kind to the County's published proposal
specifications is only discovered after the contract is executed and is or is not being performed, the contract is subject to
immediate cancellation.

Upon signing this proposal 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 §15.01, et seq., Business &
Commerce Code, or the federal antitrust laws, and has not communicated directly or indirectly the offer made to any
competitor or any other person engaged in such line of business. Any or all proposals may be rejected if the County
believes that collusion exists among the offerors. Proposals in which the prices are obviously unbalanced may be rejected.
If multiple proposals are submitted by an offeror and after the proposals are opened, one of the proposals is withdrawn, the
result will be that all of the proposals submitted by that offeror will be withdrawn; however, nothing herein prohibits a
vendor from submitting multiple offers for different products or services.

E-MAIL ADDRESSES CONSENT
Vendor affirmatively consents to the disclosure of its e-mail addresses that are provided to Harris County, the Harris
County Flood Control District, the Harris County Hospital District including its HMO, the Harris County Appraisal
District, or any agency of Harris County. This consent is intended to comply with the requirements of the Texas Public
Information Act, Tex. Gov’t Code Ann. §522.137, as amended, and shall survive termination of this agreement. This
consent shall apply to e-mail addresses provided by Vendor, its employees, officers, and agents acting on Vendor’s behalf
and shall apply to any e-mail address provided in any form for any reason whether related to this bid/proposal or otherwise.

EVALUATION
Evaluation shall be used as a determinant as to which proposed 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 proposals are subject to negotiations by the Purchasing Agent and other appropriate departments, with
recommendation to the appropriate governing body. Compliance with all requirements, delivery and needs of the using
department are considerations in evaluating proposals. Pricing is NOT the only criteria for making a recommendation. A
preliminary evaluation by Harris County will be held and appropriate proposals will be subjected to the negotiating process.
Upon completion of the negotiations, Harris County will make an award. All proposals that have been submitted shall be
available and open for public inspection after the contract is awarded except for trade secrets or confidential information
contained in the proposals and identified as such.

FISCAL FUNDING
A multi-year lease or lease/purchase arrangement (if requested by the specifications), or any contract continuing as a result of
an extension option, must include fiscal funding out. If, for any reason, funds are not appropriated to continue the lease or
contract, said lease or contract shall become null and void on the last day of the current appropriation of funds. After
expiration of the lease, leased equipment shall be removed by the contractor from the using department without penalty of any
kind or form to Harris County. All charges and physical activity related to delivery, installation, removal and redelivery shall
be the responsibility of the offeror.

shall govern.

GRANT FUNDING
Any contract entered into by the County that is to be paid from grant funds shall be limited to payment from the grant
funding and the vendor/provider understands that the County has not set aside any County funds for the payment of

                                               VENDORS OWING TAXES

requires that vendors’ taxes be current as of the date bids/proposals are due. Bidders with delinquent county taxes on the
due date will not be eligible for award. Whether or not a vendor’s taxes are delinquent will be determined by an

I.      The Contractor shall contractually require each person with whom it contracts to provide services on a project to:

        (1)        Provide coverage, based on reporting of classification codes and payroll amounts and filing of any coverage
                   agreements, which meets the statutory requirements of Texas Labor Code, Section 401.011(44) for all its
                   employees providing services on the project, for the duration of the project.

        (2)        Provide to the Contractor, prior to that person beginning work on the project a certificate of coverage showing
                   that coverage is being provided for all employees of the person providing services on the project, for the
                   duration of the project.

        (3)        Provide the Contractor, prior to the end of coverage period, a new certificate of coverage showing extension of
                   coverage, if the coverage period shown on the current certificate of coverage ends during the duration of the
                   project.

        (4)        Obtain from each other person with whom it contracts, and provide to the Contractor:

                   (a)      A certificate of coverage, prior to the other person beginning work on the project, and

                   (b)      a new certificate of coverage showing extension of coverage, prior to the end of the coverage period,
                            if the coverage period shown on the current certificate of coverage ends during the duration of the
                            project;

        (5)        Retain all required certificates of coverage on file for the duration of the project and for one (1) year thereafter.

        (6)        Notify the government entity in writing by certified mail or personal delivery, within ten (10) days after the
                   person knew or should have known, of any change that materially affects the provision of coverage of any
                   person providing services on the project; and

        (7)        Contractually require each person with whom it contracts, to perform as required by paragraphs (1) - (7), with
                   the certificates of coverage to be provided to the person for whom they are providing services.

J.      By signing this contract or providing or causing to be provided a certificate of coverage, the Contractor is representing
        to the governmental entity that all employees of the contractor who will provide services on the project will be covered
        by workers' compensation coverage for the duration of the project, that the coverage will be based on proper reporting of
        classification codes and payroll amounts, and that all coverage agreements will be filed with the appropriate insurance
        carrier or, in the case of a self-insured, with the commission's Division of Self-Insurance Regulation. Providing false or
        misleading information may subject the contractor to administrative penalties, criminal penalties, civil penalties, or other
        civil actions.

K.      The Contractor's failure to comply with any of these provisions is a breach of contract by the contractor which entitles
        the governmental entity to declare the contract void if the Contractor does not remedy the breach within ten (10) days
        after receipt of notice of breach from the governmental entity.
