Competition is the key word in doing business with the Nassau County. Most awards are made on a low bid meeting specifications basis. There are times, however, when the low bid may not be awarded. Such things as delivery time, cash discounts (over 10 days), previous experience with the vendor, may be considered in awarding the bid.
You must be competitive. The County deals primarily with manufacturers and wholesalers, and purchases at highly competitive prices. Usually retailers have difficulty in competing for County business. Read the request for price quotations carefully. The County explicitly and fully explains what it wants. Read the price requests and bid invitations carefully and be sure you can comply with all the requirements before bidding. If the material is unclear or other complications arise, contact Contract Management as soon as possible. Do not wait until the date of the bid opening.
Most procurement actions with a dollar value over five thousand ($5,000) to fifty thousand ($50,000) will be bid informally. This may be in the form of a written bid, fax or telephone bid unless specified otherwise. Those procurements over fifty thousand dollars ($50,000) are formal bids and must be submitted as a sealed bid with original signatures. (No faxes, email or telephone bids will be accepted.) All bidders responding to formal bids will be advised in writing of notice of award.
