      The purpose of this Invitation to Bid is to establish a contract for Rental of Full Size Bus
      and Mini Bus Shuttle Service in conjunction with the needs of Dade County's Parks and
      Recreation Department on an as needed when needed basis.

2.2   Intentionally Omitted

2.3   Intentionally Omitted


      This contract shall commence on the first calendar day o f the month succeeding approval
      of the contract by the Board of County Commissioners, or designee, unless otherwise
      stipulated in the Notice of Award Letter which is distributed by the County's Department
      of Procurement Management, Bids & Contracts Divisio n; and contingent upon the
      completion and submittal of all required bid documents. The contract shall remain in
      effect for twelve (12) months and upon completion of the expressed and/or implied
      warranty period.

      Adjustme nt:

      The initial contract prices resultant from this solicitation shall prevail for a one (1) year(s)
      period from the contract‟s initial effective date. Prior to, or upon completion, of that
      initial term, the County shall have the option to renew this contract for an additional four
      (4) year(s) period on a year-by-year basis. Prior to completion of each exercised contract
      term, the County may consider an adjustment to price based on changes in the following
      pricing index: CPI.

      It is the vendor‟s responsibility to request any pricing adjustment under this provision.
      For any adjustment to commence on the first day of any exercised option period, the
      vendor‟s request for adjustment should be submitted 90 days prior to expiratio n of the
      then current contract term. The vendor adjustment request should not be in excess of the
      relevant pricing index change. If no adjustment request is received from the vendor, the
      County will assume that the vendor has agreed that the optional ter m may be exercised
      without pricing adjustment. Any adjustment request received after the commencement of
      a new option period may not be considered.

      The County reserves the right to reject any price adjustments submitted by the vendor
      and/or to not exercise any otherwise available option period based on such price
      adjustments. Continuation of the contract beyond the initial period, and any option
      subsequently exercised, is a County prerogative, and not a right of the vendor. This

       prerogative will be exercised only when such continuation is clearly in the best interest of
       the County.

       Should the vendor decline the County‟s right to exercise the option period, the County
       may consider the vendor in default which decision may effect that vendor‟s eligibility for
       future contracts.

                               GIVEN CONTRACT, ANY OPTIONS TO RENEW WILL BE

       Award of this contract will be made to the responsive, responsible vendor who submits
       an offer on all items listed in the solicitation and whose offer represents the lowest price
       when all items are added in the aggregate. If a vendor fails to submit an offer on all items,
       its overall offer will be rejected. The County will award the total contract to a single

     A.   In the event of any underpayment of required wage rates, the contractor may be
          liable to the underpaid employee for the amount of such underpayment within
          thirty (30) days of the findings of violation. Covered employers found to be in

          advances as may be considered necessary to pay employees of the covered
          employer the full amount of wages required by the contract. In the event of
          failure to pay any covered employee, employed or working on the project, all or
          part of the wages required by the contract, the project manager may, after written
          notice to the service contractor, take such action as may be necessary to cause the
          suspension of any further payment, until such violations have ceased. The
          withheld monies shall be remitted to the covered employee only in accordance
          with the provisions of Section 6, "Complaints and Hearings; Contract Termination
          and Debarment".

              County may be terminated.

               route is concluded.

3.12 (c) (2)   Time will be calculated in ten (10) minute increments, based on actual service
               time. Portions of ten (10) minutes will be rounded up to the next ten (10) minutes.

           for the time missed at a rate of twice the prevailing hourly rate.

3.13 (b)   Failure to adhere to schedules defined in Item 3.9 for Fixed Route Service, as
           monitored by the County and deemed to be within reasonable control of the
           Contractor, shall result in liquidated damages of $25.00 for each one way trip.

3.13 (c)   Operating in service for longer than one hour without an operable air conditioning
           system will result in liquidated damages of $25.00 per vehicle, per day.

           to the Contractor. Whatever sum of money may become due and payable to

           money belonging to the Contractor(s) in the hands and possession of Miami Dade
           County. It is agreed that this Section shall be construed and treated by the parties
           to this Contract not as imposing a penalty upon said Contractor for failing fully to
           complete said work as agreed to in these Sections, but as liquidated damages to
           compensate Miami Dade County because of the failure of the Contractor to
           complete said work fully as specified in this Contract.

           personnel, and financial records as are deemed necessary by the County to assure

           (GAAP) and practices, consistently applied, and in accordance with any
           applicable local, federal, state laws or regulations. Data items which the

         such disallowed amounts to the County promptly.
