Attorney concerning any portion of these requirements.

Offerors must return all completed proposals to the office of the Harris County Purchasing Agent reception desk at 1001
Preston Avenue, Suite 670, Houston, Texas before 1:00 P.M. on the date specified. Late proposals will not be accepted.

GOVERNING FORMS
In the event of any conflict between the terms and provisions of these requirements and the specifications, the specifications
shall govern. In the event of any conflict of interpretation of any part of this overall document, Harris County's interpretation
shall govern.

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.

HOLD HARMLESS AGREEMENT
Contractor, the successful offeror, shall indemnify and hold Harris County harmless from all claims for personal injury, death
and/or property damage resulting directly or indirectly from contractor's performance. Contractor shall procure and maintain,
with respect to the subject matter of this proposal, appropriate insurance coverage including, as a minimum, public liability
and property damage with adequate limits to cover contractor's liability as may arise directly or indirectly from work
performed under terms of this proposal. Certification of such coverage must be provided to the County upon request.

WAIVER OF SUBROGATION
Offeror and offeror's insurance carrier waive any and all rights whatsoever with regard to subrogation against Harris County
as an indirect party to any suit arising out of personal or property damages resulting from offeror's performance under this
agreement.

SEVERABILITY
If any section, subsection, paragraph, sentence, clause, phrase or word of these requirements or the specifications shall be held
invalid, such holding shall 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.


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.

TAXES
                                                                                                                   Page 3 of 33

claims exemption from all sales and/or use taxes under Texas Tax Code §151.309, as amended. Texas Limited Sales Tax
Exemption Certificates will be furnished upon written request to the Harris County Purchasing Agent.

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.

PRICING
Prices for all goods and/or services shall be negotiated to a firm amount for the duration of this contract or as agreed to in
terms of time frame. All prices must be written in ink or typewritten. Where unit pricing and extended pricing differ, unit
pricing prevails.

SILENCE OF SPECIFICATIONS
The apparent silence of specifications as to any detail, or the apparent omission from it of a detailed description concerning
any point, shall be regarded as meaning that only the best commercial practice is to prevail and that only material and
workmanship of the finest quality are to be used. All interpretations of specifications shall be made on the basis of this
statement. The items furnished under this contract shall be new, unused of the latest product in production to commercial
trade and shall be of the highest quality as to materials used and workmanship. Manufacturer furnishing these items shall be
experienced in design and construction of such items and shall be an established supplier of the item proposed.

SUPPLEMENTAL MATERIALS
Offerors are responsible for including all pertinent product data in the returned proposal package. Literature, brochures, data
sheets, specification information, completed forms requested as part of the proposal package and any other facts which may
affect the evaluation and subsequent contract award should be included. Materials such as legal documents and contractual
agreements, which the offeror wishes to include as a condition of the proposal, must also be in the returned proposal package.
Failure to include all necessary and proper supplemental materials may be cause to reject the entire proposal.

MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEETS
Under the "Hazardous Communication Act", commonly known as the "Texas Right To Know Act", an offeror must provide
to the County with each delivery, material safety data sheets which are applicable to hazardous substances defined in the Act.
Failure of the offeror to furnish this documentation will be cause to reject any bid applying thereto.

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 Commissioners Court. 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.



INSPECTIONS
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 proposed item, where applicable, for review, or
fails to satisfactorily show an ability to perform, the County can reject the offer as inadequate.


TESTING


                                                                                                                  Page 4 of 33
Harris County reserves the right to test equipment, supplies, material and goods proposed for quality, compliance with
specifications and ability to meet the needs of the user. Demonstration units must be available for review. Should the goods
or services fail to meet requirements and/or be unavailable for evaluation, the offer is subject to rejection.

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.

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 and present evidence concerning his responsibility after officially notifying the Office of the
Purchasing Agent of his intent to appear.

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

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.

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.

TITLE TRANSFER
Title and Risk of Loss of goods shall not pass to Harris County until Harris County actually receives and takes possession of
the goods at the point or points of delivery. Receiving times may vary with the using department. Generally, deliveries may
be made between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Offerors are advised to consult the using department for
instructions. The place of delivery shall be shown under the "Special Requirements/Instructions" section of this proposal
and/or on the Purchase Order as a "Deliver To:" address.




WARRANTIES
Offerors shall furnish all data pertinent to warranties or guarantees which may apply to items in the proposal. Offerors may
not limit or exclude any implied warranties. Offeror warrants that product sold to the County shall conform to the standards
established by the U.S. Department of Labor under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. In the event product
does not conform to OSHA Standards, where applicable, Harris County may return the product for correction or replacement
at the offeror's expense. If offeror fails to make the appropriate correction within a reasonable time, Harris County may
correct at the offeror's expense.


                                                                                                                   Page 5 of 33
PURCHASE ORDER AND DELIVERY
The successful offeror shall not deliver products or provide services without a Harris County Purchase Order, signed by an
authorized agent of the Harris County Purchasing Agent. The fastest, most reasonable delivery time shall be indicated by the
offeror in the proper place on the proposal document. Any special information concerning delivery should also be included,
on a separate sheet, if necessary. All items shall be shipped F.O.B. INSIDE DELIVERY unless otherwise stated in the
specifications. This shall be understood to include bringing merchandise to the appropriate room or place designated by the
using department. Every tender or delivery of goods must fully comply with all provisions of these requirements and the
specifications including time, delivery and quality. Nonconformance shall constitute a breach which must be rectified prior to
expiration of the time for performance. Failure to rectify within the performance period will be considered cause to reject
future deliveries and cancellation of the contract by Harris County without prejudice to other remedies provided by law.
Where delivery times are critical, Harris County reserves the right to award accordingly.

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.

INVOICES AND PAYMENTS
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 good 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.

TERMINATION
Harris County reserves the right to terminate the contract for default if Seller breaches any of the terms therein, including
warranties of offeror or if the offeror becomes insolvent or commits acts of bankruptcy. Such right of termination is in
addition to and not in lieu of any other remedies which Harris County may have in law or equity. Default may be construed
as, but not limited to, failure to deliver the proper goods and/or services within the proper amount of time, and/or to properly
perform any and all services required to Harris County's satisfaction and/or to meet all other obligations and requirements.
Harris County may terminate the contract without cause upon thirty (30) days written notice.

RECYCLED MATERIALS
Harris County encourages the use of products made of recycled materials and shall give preference in purchasing to products
made of recycled materials if the products meet applicable specifications as to quantity and quality. Harris County will be the
sole judge in determining product preference application.

SCANNED OR RE-TYPED RESPONSE
If in its response, offeror either electronically scans, re-types, or in some way reproduces the County's published proposal
package, then in the event of any conflict between the terms and provisions of the County's published proposal package, or
any portion thereof, and the terms and provisions of the response made by offeror, the County's proposal package as
published shall control. Furthermore, if an alteration of any kind to the County's published proposal package is only

inspection, including those portions marked confidential and/or proprietary.

2.0 EVALUATION PROCESS
All proposals will be examined by an evaluation committee consisting of representatives
from various departments and clinics within Harris County Hospital District as well as
members from Harris County Purchasing. Members may be added as needed.

Proposals which do not conform to the instructions given or which do not address all the
questions and/or services specified may be eliminated from consideration. Harris County,
however, reserves the right to accept such a proposal if it is determined to be in the County’s
best interest to do so.

Harris County may initiate discussions with vendors. Proposals will be accepted during this
period but only from vendors who responded to the original request. Discussions may not
be initiated by vendors. Harris County expects to conduct discussions with vendor
personnel authorized to contractually obligate the vendor with an offer.

Proposals, vendor interviews and/or evaluations will develop into negotiating sessions with
the successful vendor as selected by the evaluation committee. If Harris County is unable to
agree to contract terms, Harris County reserves the right to terminate contact negotiations
with that vendor and initiate negotiations with another vendor.

All correspondence relating to this RFP, from advertisement to award, shall be sent to
the Office of the Harris County Purchasing Agent. All presentations and/or meetings
between Harris County and the vendor relating to this RFP shall be coordinated by the
Office of the Harris County Purchasing Agent. All correspondence, written and/or
verbal, shall be through the Office of the Harris County Purchasing Agent.

Before, during or after award, Harris County will not be obligated to the vendor for products
and/or services until the completion of a signed purchase order from Harris County Hospital
District. Progress toward this end is solely at the discretion of Harris County and may be
terminated at any time prior to the issuance of a purchase order.

Submission of a proposal implies the vendor’s acceptance of the evaluation criteria and
vendor recognition that subjective judgements must be made by the evaluating committee.

   1. PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

       1.1    OBJECTIVES
                                                                                          Page 11 of 33
    The District envisions the program to provide access to cost-effective, quality dental care and
    to maximize the accessibility of facilities to the greatest extent possible for the indigent of
    Harris County. Through an agreement, the City of Houston Health Department and the Harris
    County Hospital District maximizes resources by delivering dental care to targeted age
    groups.

The plan to serve the eligible population of Houston/Harris County, Texas is:

          a. Children and young adults under the age of 16 years are to be referred to the City Health
             Department for dental services. The District will concentrate on patients 16 and older.

          b. Each new patient will be evaluated and prioritized. The dental services delivery system
             employed by the District will provide the patient with appropriate level(s) of care.

          c. Each dental provider is expected to provide care for a minimum of sixteen (16) patients
             per business day.

          d. Operation policies and procedures will be determined through a collaborative effort
             between the Harris County Hospital District and the contractor.

In its effort to insure quality care is rendered to the community, the Harris County Hospital District
will secure an independent auditor to perform an annual utilization review.


                               APPROPRIATE LEVELS OF CARE

                i. Urgent Care
    Urgent Care – that level of care which is required to alleviate acute dental pain and/or
    dental infections which may result in pain. (Examples: Abscessed tooth, acute
    periodontal infection, etc.). Patients will be seen by appointment. Every effort will be
    made to ensure same day availability of urgent appointment slots.

               ii. Episodic Care
    Episodic Care – that level of care which might be required to prevent an existing
    dental problem from becoming acute or urgent.(Example: Broken tooth or filling).
    These patients would receive dental services on an “as needed” basis.

               iii. Preventive Care:
    Preventive Care – the level of care that may be required to restore and maintain the
    patient’s oral health status to an acceptable condition.

     the Texas Workers' Compensation Commission, informing all persons providing services on the
     project that they are required to be covered, and stating how a person may verify coverage and

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

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

                    coverage period, if the coverage period shown on the current certificate of coverage
                    ends during the duration of the project;



                                                                                              Page 27 of 33
     (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.
