Such
ACTION ON BIDS
The Borough reserves the right to reject any and all Bids, and to waive any informalities and irregularities in
Bidding or award of the Agreement.
Unless otherwise stated in the Bidding Documents, a purchase order, if awarded, shall be issued to the
responsible Bidder who submits the lowest responsive Bid. When the Bidding Documents contain a base bid
and alternates, the total of the base bid and the alternates to be awarded shall be used to determine the low
Bidder.
When the Bidding Documents contain a base bid and additive alternates, the low Bidder will be determined by
the total of the lowest base bid and any alternates to be awarded. Additive alternates will be exercised at the
option of Owner. Owner may select all, none, or any combination of Alternates in any order. All bids shall be
evaluated on the basis of the same alternates.
When the Bidding Documents contain deductive alternates, the low Bidder will be determined by the lowest
base bid. If the lowest base bid exceeds the funds available, the low Bidder will be determined by the total of
the base bid and any deductive alternates selected. Owner may select all, none, or any combination of
Deductive Alternates in any order. All bids shall be evaluated on the basis of the same alternates.
The amount of the purchase order shall be the total sum of the amounts computed from the estimated
quantities and unit prices and/or the lump sum awarded by the Purchasing Officer and specified in the
Agreement.
On all Bids, Notice of Intent to Award or rejection will be given within sixty (60) days of Bid opening. The
notice will be in writing and signed by the Purchasing Officer. A Notice of Intent to Award, and no other act of
the Borough or its representatives, constitutes an acceptance of a Bid. The acceptance of a Bid shall bind the
successful Bidder to perform on the resultant purchase order.
When vendors and/or contractors propose equal pricing (or tie bids), bids will be reviewed by the Purchasing
Officer to determine responsiveness. If all requirements for the bid being responsive are met, then the award
or recommendation of the award will be made in favor of the bid which received the earliest time stamp prior
to bid opening.
