                                                 GENERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR PROPOSALS

READ THIS ENTIRE DOCUMENT CAREFULLY. FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR FULFILLING ALL
REQUIREMENTS AND SPECIFICATIONS. BE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND THEM.

General Requirements apply to all advertised requests for proposals; however, these may be superseded, whole or in part, by the SPECIAL
REQUIREMENTS/INSTRUCTIONS OTHER DATA CONTAINED HEREIN. Review the Table of Contents. Be sure your proposal package is
complete.

ADDENDA
When specifications are revised, the Harris County Purchasing Agent will issue an addendum addressing the nature of the 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, Community
Supervision & Corrections Department Board, 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.

CONTRACT OBLIGATION
Harris County Commissioners Court must award the contract and the County Judge or other person authorized by the Harris County Commissioners Court
must sign the contract before it becomes binding on Harris County or the offeror. Department heads are NOT authorized to sign agreements for Harris
County. Binding agreements shall remain in effect until all products and/or services covered by this purchase have been satisfactorily delivered and
accepted.

CONTRACT RENEWALS
Renewals may be made ONLY by written agreement between Harris County and the offeror. Any price escalations are limited to those stated by the offeror
in the original proposal.

DISQUALIFICATION OF OFFEROR
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

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.

FLOPPY DISK

instructions contained in this Request for Proposal package. If, in its response, offeror makes any changes whatsoever to the County's published
specifications, the County's specifications as published shall control. Furthermore, if an alteration of any kind to the County's published specifications is
only discovered after the contract is executed and is or is not being performed, the contract is subject to immediate cancellation.

GOVERNING FORMS

seq., as amended. Offerors shall comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations. Offeror is further advised that these requirements
shall be fully governed by the laws of the State of Texas and that Harris County may request and rely on advice, decisions and opinions of the Attorney
General of Texas and the County Attorney concerning any portion of these requirements.

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 obligations under a grant contract. If grant funding should become
unavailable at any time for the continuation of services paid for by the grant, and further funding cannot be obtained for the contract, then the sole
recourse of the provider shall be to terminate any further services under the contract and the contract shall be null and void.

HIPAA COMPLIANCE
Offeror agrees to comply with the Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information of the Health Insurance Portability and
Accountability Act of 1996, PL 104-191, 45 CFR Parts 160-164, as amended, and the Texas Medical Records Privacy Act, Texas Health and Safety

INSPECTIONS & TESTING
Harris County reserves the right to inspect any item(s) or service location for compliance with specifications and requirements and needs of the using
department. If an offeror cannot furnish a sample of a bid item, where applicable, for review, or fails to satisfactorily show an ability to perform, the
County can reject the bid as inadequate.

Offerors shall submit an original invoice on each purchase order or purchase release after each delivery, indicating the purchase order number.
Invoices must be itemized. Any invoice which cannot be verified by the contract price and/or is otherwise incorrect, will be returned to the offeror for
correction. Under term contracts, when multiple deliveries and/or services are required, the offeror may invoice following each delivery and the
County will pay on invoice. Contracts providing for a monthly charge will be billed and paid on a monthly basis only. Prior to any and all payments
made for goods and/or services provided under this contract, the offeror should provide his Taxpayer Identification Number or social security number
as applicable. This information must be on file with the Harris County Auditor’s office. Failure to provide this information may result in a delay in
payment and/or back-up withholding as required by the Internal Revenue Service.

Maintenance required for equipment proposed should be available in Harris County by a manufacturer-authorized maintenance facility. Costs for this
service shall be shown on the Pricing/Delivery Information. If Harris County opts to include maintenance, it shall be so stated in the purchase order and
said cost will be included. Service will commence only upon expiration of applicable warranties and should be priced accordingly.

not affect the remaining portions of these requirements and the specifications and it is hereby declared that such remaining portions would have been
included in these requirements and the specifications as though the invalid portion had been omitted.

Pursuant to TX Local Government Code 262.0276, the Hospital District Board of Managers has adopted a policy which requires that vendors’ taxes be
current as of the date bids/proposals are due. Bidders/proposers with delinquent 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 independent review of the Tax Office records. Vendors who believe a delinquency is reflected
in error must contact the Tax Office to correct any errors or discrepancies prior to submitting their bid in order to ensure that their bid will be
considered. Tax records are available online at the Tax Office website—www.hctax.net. Prior to submitting a bid, vendors are encouraged to visit the
Tax Office website, set up a portfolio of their accounts and make their own initial determination of the status of their tax accounts. This policy is
effective for all bids due on or after July 1, 2004.
