Each bidder is required to deliver his/her proposal by 11:00 a.m. on Monday, July 11, 2022, at the Johnston Public Schools Administration Office located at 10 Memorial Avenue, Johnston, RI. All bids will be publicly opened and read on Monday, July 11, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. Bids received after 11:00 a.m. will not be accepted.

For each proposal submitted, the envelope must be sealed and clearly marked for the item you are bidding.

Bids are awarded in writing to the lowest responsible bidder. A bid is deemed responsive when it:

1. Complies exactly with the specifications.
2. Complies exactly with the brand name(s) required for materials in the specifications.
    Same quality materials are unacceptable, are cause for rejection, or breach of contract.
3. Promises performance by time and date.

Other municipal agencies in the Town of Johnston shall be entitled to the above costs compliant with the bid specifications.

Bids are awarded based on the availability of funding. If all the bids exceed the available funding, the School Committee may:
1. Re-solicit bids under revised specifications, or;
2. Enter into competitive negotiations with the three (3) lowest responsible and responsive bidders.

A reasonable inquiry to determine the responsibility of a bidder or offer may be conducted.
Failure to promptly supply information related to such an inquiry may be grounds for a finding of non-responsibility.
After the bid is awarded, all documents pertaining to the winning bid will be available for public inspection.
Any bid that does not conform to the aforementioned provisions is deemed not responsive to the bid invitation and the School Committee reserves the right not to consider the bid.
The Johnston School Committee reserves the right to waive any informality or to reject any or all bids.

Per Order of the Johnston School Committee
