2018, at the Office of the Board of County Commissioners, 1116 W. Broadway, County
Courthouse, 1st Floor, Spokane, WA 99260-0100, or from 10:45 o’clock a.m., until 11 :00 o’clock
a.m., Wednesday, January 17, 2018 in Conference Room 2B at the Spokane County Public
Works Building, 1026 W. Broadway Avenue, Spokane, Washington. Bid Opening will be held
at 11 :00 o’clock a.m. in Conference 2B, at the Spokane County Public Works Building, 1026 W.
Broadway Avenue, Spokane, Washington. After a last call for bids, all bids will be opened and
publicly read aloud for this improvement project.
BID DEPOSIT REQUIRED. No bid may be considered for public work unless it is accompanied
by a bid deposit in the form of a surety bond, postal money order, cash, cashier’s check, or
certified check in an amount equal to five percent (5%) of the amount of the bid proposed. If
the bidder to whom the contract is awarded fails to enter into the contract and furnish the
contractor’s bond as required within ten days after notice of the award, exclusive of the day of
notice, the amount of the bid deposit shall be forfeited to the county and the contract awarded
to the next lowest arid best bidder.
If the bid deposit is “cash” and is in the form of a postal money order, cashier’s check, or certified
check the checks are to be made payable to the Spokane County Treasurer. Cash bid deposits
are to be accompanied by a completed Bid Deposit Form (see Appendix). Cash bid deposits
of all unsuccessful bidders shall be returned after the contract is awarded and the required
contractor’s bond and proof of insurance given by the successful bidder is accepted by the
Board of County Commissioners.
If the bid deposit is in the form of a surety bond it must be of a corporate surety licensed to do
business in the State of Washington accompanied by a completed Bid Deposit Surety Bond
Form (see Appendix).
WARNING: If the bidder is to submit a bid deposit in the form of a Surety Bond, the
County strongly recommends the use of the County Bid Deposit Surety Form contained
in the appendix. Recent analysis has revealed that as many as 30% of the bid deposit
surety bonds submitted on public works projects are potentially fatally flawed as they
contain qualifications to the 5% forfeiture penalty mandated by RCW 36.32.250. If the
County Bid Deposit Surety Bond Form is not used, the bidder is warned to take special
care in assuring that the language contained in the form used does not materially alter,
qualify or conflict with the terms and conditions set forth in the County Bid Deposit
Surety Bond Form, Bid Deposit Surety Form, and RCW 36.32.250. Any such material
alteration, qualification or conflict shall make the bid non-responsive and shall cause the
bid to be rejected by the County.
The following is applicable to Federal-aid projects. The County of Spokane, in accordance with
Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 78 Stat. 252, 42 U.S.C. 2000d to 2000d-4 and Title 49,
Code of Federal Regulations, Department of Transportation, Subtitle A, Office of the Secretary,
Part 21, Nondiscrimination in Federally-Assisted Programs of the Department of Transportation
issued pursuant to such Act, hereby notifies all bidders that it will affirmatively ensure that in
any contract entered into pursuant to this advertisement, disadvantaged business enterprises
as defined at 49 CFR Part 26 will be afforded full opportunity to submit bids in response to this
invitation and will not be discriminated against on the grounds of race, color, national origin or
sex in consideration for an award.
Maps, plans and specifications may be obtained from this office upon payment of the amount
of $25.00 (Non-refundable).
Informational copies of maps, plans and specifications are on file for inspection in the Office of
the County Engineer of Spokane in Spokane, Washington.
