1. Bids shall be submitted to the designated purchasing agent at the Grand River Dam Authority (hereinafter referred to as
“GRDA” or “the Authority”) at the address on the attached RFQ or RFP form on or before the date (and time, if
applicable) indicated. Bids shall be in conformity with these and any additional instructions to bidders and shall be
submitted on GRDA’s form. The RFQ (Request for Quote) or RFP (Request for Proposal) form must be
completed in full and signed by the bidder. If your bid response necessitates additional space, you may attach

signatures can be transmitted successfully.
3. Non-Collusion Certificate: RFQs or RFPs anticipated to exceed a total amount of $5,000 shall be accompanied by a
Non-Collusion Certificate. This certificate shall be completed by the bidder and include a signature in ink of an
authorized company representative (preferably the bidder) with full knowledge and acceptance of the bid proposal. In

orders in excess of $5,000 will not be released to the successful bidder without receipt of a properly signed certificate
for the bid.
4. In the event the unit price and line total extension do not agree, the unit price shall be considered the quoted price
accepted for evaluation.
5. Freight Terms: All prices shall be quoted FOB: Destination/Freight Allowed. All packaging, handling, shipping and
delivery charges shall be included in the unit price quoted for each line item. No exceptions shall be granted unless
approved by the guidelines of the GRDA Chief Financial Officer or designee.
6. Other Surcharges: Any additional surcharges (such as HazMat charges, fuel surcharges, set-up fees, etc.) shall be
included in the unit price quoted for each line item. All additional charges are considered a part of the cost of the goods,
and bids shall be evaluated to include these additional charges.
7. Tax-Exempt Status: GRDA is an agency of the state of Oklahoma and is specifically exempt from the payment of
sales tax by Oklahoma state statute, Title 68 O.S.A. § 1356 (10). An excerpt from the statute shall be furnished upon
request.
8. Questions arising during the bidding process should be submitted in writing to the GRDA purchasing agent
named on the RFQ or RFP. The GRDA purchasing agent shall coordinate a reply from the end user to ensure that all
potential bidders are provided the same information. Under no circumstances shall a bidder discuss pricing with any
GRDA employee prior to the bid opening.
9. All bids submitted shall be subject to GRDA’s Purchasing Policy and Procedures, General Terms and Conditions, the
bidding instructions and specifications, the Oklahoma Open Records Act, other statutory regulations as applicable, and
any other terms and conditions listed or attached herein – all of which are made part of this Request for Quote or
Request for Proposal.
10. GRDA reserves the right to reject any and all bids, and to contract as the best interests of the Authority may require.
GRDA reserves the right to reject any bids that do not comply with the requirements and specifications of the Request
for Quote or Request for Proposal. All bid responses become the property of GRDA and are subject to the Oklahoma
Open Records Act. GRDA shall endeavor to protect technical information designated by the bidder as proprietary
information; however, only technical information (i.e., “trade secrets”) may be considered proprietary – pricing and other
non-technical aspects of the quote shall be considered non-proprietary.
11. “Sole Brand” or “No Sub” Items: Items with a “Sole Brand” or “No Sub” designation in the description shall be
furnished as the specified manufacturer and model/part number. No exception may be taken to the specification, and
no alternate shall be accepted. In those cases where a manufacturer has discontinued the specified model/part
number, the bidder shall indicate so on the RFQ. If a replacement item is available, the new model/part number shall
be indicated on the RFQ form and the price quoted. It shall also be noted whether the replacement item is a direct
replacement for the obsolete part number originally requested. If not, or if the specifications differ in any way, the bidder
shall explain in detail, and corresponding drawings or descriptive literature shall be included with the quote.

GENERAL BIDDING INSTRUCTIONS
FOR STANDARD & EMERGENCY BIDS
GRAND RIVER DAM AUTHORITY
12. Approved Equivalents: Unless an item is designated as a “Sole Brand” or “No Sub” item, any manufacturer’s name,
brand name, information and/or catalog number listed in a specification is for informational or cross-reference purposes
and is not intended to limit competition. Bidders may offer any brand/manufacturer for which they are an authorized
representative, provided it meets or exceeds the specification of the listed item. However, if quoting an equivalent
product, bidders shall indicate on the RFQ form the manufacturer’s name and part number. Bidder shall also submit any
drawings, descriptive literature and specifications for evaluation purposes. Reference to literature submitted with a
previous bid shall not satisfy this provision. The bidder shall also provide written confirmation that the proposed
equivalent will meet the requested specifications and is not considered an exception. Bids which do not comply with
these requirements may be rejected. GRDA warehouses are not permitted to accept any item with a part number
differing from that quoted by the bidder. Bids lacking any written indication of intent to furnish an alternate brand, model
or part number shall be considered to be in complete compliance with the specifications as listed on the RFQ.
13. Insurance Certificates: Any service to be performed that requires the vendor’s employee, vehicle or equipment to be
on any GRDA property must be covered by minimum insurance requirements. The workscope to be performed for the
Authority shall be evaluated and the minimum insurance requirements shall be provided to prospective bidders with the
RFQ or RFP. Evidence of insurance coverage shall be furnished in the form of a Certificate of Insurance, and shall be
submitted with the bid response. Bidders shall disclose any subcontractors to be used, and the Authority shall consider
the supplier as the single point of contact. The supplier shall assume responsibility for the performance of the
subcontractor. Policies shall remain current for the duration of the requested service period, and GRDA shall be notified
of any cancellation or revision to policies. Purchase Orders shall not be released to the successful bidder without a
current Certificate of Insurance naming GRDA as certificate holder on file. A Memorandum of Insurance shall not be
acceptable for this requirement.
14. MSDS: Material Safety Data Sheets shall be furnished to GRDA’s Safety Department at the address noted on the PO
prior to delivery of items.
15. Purchase Orders shall be awarded to the “lowest and best” or “best value” bidder. Line items may be split into multiple
orders, taking low items from each respective bidder, or orders may be awarded on an “all or none” basis, whichever is
in the best interests of the Authority. Award decisions are further subject to consideration of any additional terms and
conditions contained in the bid proposal. Vendor protests must be submitted in writing to the Central Purchasing Unit of
GRDA within thirty-six (36) hours of award of Contract or Purchase Order.
16. Successful vendor shall deliver the merchandise or perform the service as quoted. Substitutions or changes without
prior approval of the GRDA purchasing agent shall be rejected and returned at the vendor’s expense.
17. Bidder Responsibilities:
Bidders are to transact all phases of the purchasing function directly with the GRDA
purchasing agent. Bidders are to conduct all written and verbal communication with the Authority through the GRDA
purchasing agent. Bidders are to conduct negotiations ethically, without attempts to influence through offers of valuable
personal gifts or entertainment. Bidders are to make available as requested any technical information which might be of
benefit in the bid evaluation.
18. Supplier List: The Finance Department maintains a current listing of suppliers with a cross-reference as to products
and services offered. Suppliers may have their names added to the list by submitting a completed Vendor
Registration/Payee Application, and shall notify the Authority of any update information. If a supplier fails to respond to
bid requests after four appropriate solicitations, that supplier may be removed from the active list. Suppliers who do not
meet quoted shipping dates or lead times, supply products or services of poor quality, substitute items of unequal
quality, continually over-ship or under-ship items, or do not invoice properly may be placed under suspension or
disqualified from the active supplier list. Suppliers may voluntarily request to be removed from the supplier database.
19. Service Contracts: By submitting a bid for services, the bidder certifies that they, and any proposed subcontractors,
are in compliance with 25 O.S. §1313 and participate in the Status Verification System. The Status Verification System
is defined in 25 O.S. §1312 and includes, but is not limited to, the free Employment Verification Program (E-Verify)
available at www.dhs.gov/E-Verify. This shall remain in effect through the entire term, including all renewal periods, of
the contract. The State may request verification of compliance for any contractor or subcontractor. Should the State
suspect or find the contractor or any of its subcontractors are not in compliance, the State may pursue any and all
remedies allowed by law, including, but not limited to: suspension of work, termination of the contract for default, and
suspension or debarment of the contractor. All costs necessary to verify compliance are the responsibility of the
