Sealed Bid Opening and Award
Sealed bids received prior to the closing date and hour are secured in the Administrative Services Bid Tab Office until they are to be opened. Upon opening, the bids are publicly read in the Bid Room, 1st Floor, 1201 East Broad Street. All bidders are welcome to attend the bid opening. The opening date and time corresponds to the closing date and time printed on the first page of the RFQ. Personnel opening and reading the bids read the name of the firm, unit price, total price, delivery date and type of commodity. Please note that award results are not made public at that time. The bids are tabulated and the appropriate Contract Officer then analyzes them to determine the lowest responsive, responsible bidder before the award can be made. Once the award is made, the purchase order or notice of award is prepared and transmitted to the successful bidder. Bid result information is available by enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope with the bid. Bid results are also posted on the previously mentioned bid board. Due to the volume of work, bid results are not available by phone or fax.
