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 bids.

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.
