INFORMATION FOR BIDDERS
BIDS will be received by the City of Colville (herein called the “OWNER”) at the time and location
set forth in the Call for Bids herein before and then at said office publicly opened and read aloud.
Each BID must be submitted in a sealed envelope addressed to the City of Colville. Each sealed
envelope containing a BID must be plainly marked on the outside as BID for the Colville Fire and
Emergency Services Facility. The envelope should bear on the outside the name of the BIDDER,
address, contractor registration number if applicable, and the name of the project for which the
BID is submitted. If forwarded by mail, the sealed envelope containing the BID must be enclosed
in another envelope addressed to the OWNER at the above address.
All BIDS must be made on the required PROPOSAL FORM. All blank spaces for BID prices must be
filled in, in ink or typewritten, and the PROPOSAL FORM must be fully completed and executed
when submitted. Only one copy of the PROPOSAL FORM is required.
Before submitting their proposal, the BIDDER shall examine the site of the work and review the
drawings and specifications including ADDENDA and ascertain for themselves the work required
and all of the physical conditions in relation thereto. Failure to take this precaution will not
release the successful BIDDER from entering into contracts nor excuse the BIDDER from
performing the work in strict accordance with the terms of the contract. No verbal statement
made by any officer, agent, or employee of the OWNER, in relation to the physical conditions
pertaining to the site of the work, will be binding on the OWNER during the gathering of
information for proposal preparation by the BIDDER. After BIDS have been submitted, the
BIDDER shall not assert that there was a misunderstanding concerning the quantities of WORK
or the nature of the WORK to be done.
The CONTRACT DOCUMENTS contain the provisions required for the construction of the
PROJECT. Information obtained from an officer, agent, or employee of the OWNER or any other
person shall not affect the risks or obligations assumed by the CONTRACTOR or relieve them from
fulfilling any of the conditions of the contract.
Each BID must be accompanied by a BID deposit payable to the OWNER for five percent (5%) of
the total amount of the BID. As soon as the BID prices have been compared, the OWNER will
return the deposits of all except the three lowest responsible BIDDERS. When the Agreement is
executed, the deposits of the two remaining unsuccessful BIDDERS will be returned. A certified
check may be used in lieu of a BID bond.
A performance and a payment bond in the amount of 100 percent (100%) of the CONTRACT
PRICE, with a corporate surety approved by the OWNER, will be required for the faithful
performance of the contract.
Attorneys-in-fact who sign bid bond and contract bonds must file with each bond a certified and
effective dated copy of their power of attorney. The OWNER may make such investigations as deemed necessary to determine the ability of the CONTRACTOR shall not commence work until a NOTICE TO PROCEED has been issued by the
BIDDER to perform the WORK, and the BIDDER shall furnish to the OWNER all such information
and data for this purpose as the OWNER may request. The OWNER reserves the right to reject
any BID if the evidence submitted by, or investigation of, such BIDDER fails to satisfy the OWNER,
in the OWNER’S discretion, that such BIDDER is properly qualified to carry out the obligations of
the Agreement and to complete the WORK contemplated therein.
The party to whom the contract is awarded will be required to execute the Agreement and obtain
the contract payment and performance bond within twenty (20) calendar days after the date on
the NOTICE OF AWARD. The NOTICE OF AWARD shall be accompanied by the necessary
Agreement and bond forms. In case of failure of the BIDDER to execute the Agreement, the
OWNER reserves the option to consider the BIDDER in default, in which case the BID deposit
accompanying the bid shall become the property of the OWNER.
A conditional or qualified BID will not be accepted.
Award of the bid is base on the low bid of Schedule A. The OWNER reserves the right to reject
All applicable laws, ordinances, and the rules and regulations of all authorities having jurisdiction
over construction of the project shall apply to the contract throughout.
Each BIDDER is responsible for inspecting the site and for reading and being thoroughly familiar
with the CONTRACT DOCUMENTS. The failure or omission of any BIDDER to do any of the
foregoing shall in no way relieve any BIDDER from any obligation in respect to its BID.
