Representatives of the Agency are not authorized to provide oral explanations or interpretations of Bid

Bid Contract Documents, which cover the subject of the inquiry.

This Agreement shall not be interpreted in favor of any Party by virtue of said Party not having

Addendum - Any written addendum issued before or during the time of bidding shall become a part of
the Bid Contract Document and shall be signed and attached to the Bid and made a part of the
Contract. Failure to submit the addendum(s), if any, may be cause for bid rejection of the Bid.

Estimated Quantities – The quantities listed on the Dollar Price Bid Form are estimates. The purchased
quantity may vary from these estimates and the Agency does not guarantee these quantities will be
purchased.

Prohibition of Alterations & Bid Rejection - Bids which are incomplete or which contain alterations or
items not called for in the bid may be rejected. Bids submitted on forms other than those furnished by
the Agency may not be considered.

provisions herein. If necessary, supplementary information in addendum form will be prepared and
posted on the “NOTICE INVITING BIDS - PURCHASING” section of the Agency’s website,

may be present at the opening and reading of the bids.

Method of Award – Award will be made to the lowest responsive, responsible bidder either in the

options from the bid contract documents. The Agency reserves the right to reject any and all bids and
to waive irregularities in said bids.

following: informalities, nonconforming, non-responsive or conditional Bids, Bids showing any
alterations of form, erasures or irregularities of any kind, additions not called for, incomplete Bids, or
Bids not conforming with the "Bid Requirements and Conditions" in any way may be rejected.

Withdrawal of Bids - Any Bid may be withdrawn any time prior to the time fixed for opening of Bids
(Closing Time) only by a written request filed with the Agency for the withdrawal of the Bid. The
withdrawal request shall be executed by a duly authorized representative of the bidder. The
withdrawal of the Bid does not prejudice the right of the bidder to file a new Bid prior to the Bid
Closing Time. No Bids may be withdrawn after Bid Closing Time.

Disqualification of Duplicate or Collusive Bidders - More than one Bid Proposal from an individual, a
firm or partnership, a corporation or an association under the same or different names will not be
considered. Reasonable grounds for believing that any bidder has submitted more than one Bid for the
Bid contemplated will cause the rejection of all Bids in which such bidder is interested. If there is
reason for believing that collusion exists among the bidders, any and all Bids may be rejected.

Material Warranty - Before the Contract is awarded and, if applicable, the bidder may be required to
furnish a complete statement of the origin, composition and manufacture of any or all materials to be
supplied, together with samples. The samples may be subjected to tests in order to determine their
quality and fitness.

Competency of Bidders - Before any contract is awarded, the bidder may be required to furnish a
complete statement of financial ability and experience in performing Bid Contract Services. In
accordance with the provisions of the California Business and Professions Code and other regulations,
bidder must have and maintain current any and all necessary licenses or certificates. State of California
Contractor’s license or any other licenses must be valid at the time of the bid, and maintained
throughout the term of the contract.

Modification of Submitted Bids - A bidder may modify their Bid by written communication provided
such communication is received by the Agency prior to the Closing Time for receipt of Bids. The
written communication should not reveal the Bid price but should state the addition or subtraction or
other modification so that the final prices or terms will not be known by the Agency until the sealed
bid is opened.

Discrepancies - In the case of discrepancy between unit prices and totals, unit prices will prevail. In
case of discrepancy between words and figures, words will prevail.

                      AWARD AND EXECUTION OF CONTRACT
Award of Contract Requirements
  • If a Contract is awarded, it will be to the lowest responsive responsible Bidder whose bid
      complies with the requirements prescribed by the Bid Contract Documents.
  • The Agency reserves the right to accept or reject any and all bids for a period of sixty (60) days
      after the date of opening, and to waive any informality or irregularity in any Bid.
  • No Bid may be withdrawn for a period of sixty (60) days after Bid Closing Time.

The Agency may require the Bidder to submit additional information, prior to the Bid being considered
for award, as follows:
    • A statement of facts and detail as to the Bidder's business, technical organization, financial
       resources and equipment available and to be used in performing the work.
    • Evidence that the Bidder has previously performed work or supplied product of comparable
       magnitude and type.

The Agency expressly reserves the right to reject any Bid if it determines that the business and
technical organization, equipment, financial and other resources or other experience of the Bidder
(including the bidder's sub-vendor, if any) are not sufficiently qualified for the work bid upon and,
therefore, justifies such rejection.

Notification of Intent to Award – After the due diligence process and determination of the apparent
lowest responsible bidder(s), the Agency will post a Notice of Intent to Award identifying the
successful bidder(s) on the Agency’s website and notify all Bidders.

Pricing – Prices shall include any and all charges associated with the performance of this contract and
compliance with all specification and terms and conditions. Additional charges will not be allowed.

Execution of Contract – A Purchase Order will be executed for the purchase(s) subsequent to the
Agency’s contract award process. No Bid shall be considered binding upon the Agency until the
execution of the Purchase Order by the Agency and all conditions of the Contract Bid Document have
been met.

Contract Documents – The Contract documents will consist of this bid contract document; the
successful bidder’s completed and signed Bid Sheet; and a Purchase Order from the Agency. No Bid
shall be considered binding upon the Agency until the execution of the Purchase Order by the Agency
and all conditions of the Contract Bid Document have been met.

Failure to Execute Contract - Failure to execute the Contract within fourteen (14) calendar days after
the bidder has received notice of Contract award, shall be just cause for the annulment of the award at
the sole election of the Agency. If the successful bidder refuses or fails to execute the Contract and
deliver any required bonds and/or certificates of insurance, the Agency may award the Contract to

                                               8
                                      Placer County Water Agency

                                    Bid Contract Document #P-11-02

another bidder.

Protest of Bid and Appeals Process – Any bidder or offeror who is aggrieved in connection with the
solicitation or pending award of the contract may protest to the Agency’s Director of Financial
Services. The protest shall be submitted in writing to the Director of Financial Services and received
by 4:30 p.m. within three (3) business days after the posting of the Notice of Intent to Award on the
Agency website at www.pcwa.net. Failure to file a written notice of protest within the time period
specified shall result in relinquishment of all rights to protest by the potential vendor or abrogation of
any further bid protest proceedings. The written protest must include the bid contract number, the
name, address, and telephone number of the person representing the protesting party, a clear and
complete statement of the basis for the protest and the specific requested relief or remedies sought by
the protestor. The protest must be signed and submitted under penalty of perjury under the laws of the
State of California. The written bid protest shall be accompanied by a non-refundable bid protest fee
of $500.00 in the form of a certified cashier’s check made payable to “Placer County Water Agency”
to reimburse a portion of the Agency’s costs in reviewing and investigating the protest. Any untimely
protest or protest submitted without a requisite bid protest fee will be returned to the protestor without
further action. The party filing the protest must concurrently transmit a copy of the protest to the
bidder identified in the Notice of Intent to Award. The party filing the protest must have actually
submitted a responsive bid for the same bid contract being protested. A subcontractor or supplier of a
party filing a bid may not submit a bid protest.

These procedures shall be the sole remedy for challenging an award of bid. Bidders are prohibited
from attempts to influence, persuade or promote through any other channels or means. Such attempts
may be cause of suspension of future bid consideration.

For further details on the bid protest or appeals process, please see the Agency’s website at
