New Jersey Administrative Code
Section 17:9-10.8 - Bid opening

Universal Citation: NJ Admin Code 17:9-10.8

Current through Register Vol. 55, No. 48, December 18, 2023

(a) Bid proposals must be received prior to or at the time and place designated in the RFP for bid opening. Late bid proposals will be rejected. The Director may extend the time for bid opening when a vendor notifies the Director of the vendor's intent to bid but, due to an emergency, timely delivery of the bid proposal is not possible. The bidder making such request must do so prior to the time of the scheduled bid opening. If the Director determines that a delayed bid opening is in the State's best interest, the Director shall designate a revised bid opening time.

(b) For RFPs not having a negotiation component, the bidder's name, address and bid pricing will be read at bid opening. Bid proposals will be made available for public review thereafter upon request and as scheduled by the Director.

(c) For RFPs having a negotiation component, only the names and addresses of the bidders will be read at bid opening. Bid proposals shall be made available for public review, upon request and scheduling by the Director, after issuance of the Notice of Intent to Award by the Director.

(d) Each bid proposal and, if applicable, each best and final offer will be available for public inspection in accord with the Open Public Records Act, 47:1A-1 et seq. Within its bid proposal, the bidder must identify any data or materials it asserts are exempt from public inspection under the Act and explain the basis for such assertion. The assertion that the entire bid proposal or prices bid are exempt from public inspection under the Act is not acceptable and will result in the rejection of the bid proposal.
