Once your certification has been received and verified you will be added to our Local Vendors Preference Bidders list. Additionally, you will receive written verification that your status as a local vendor has been approved. Whenever you submit a bid or respond to a Request for Bids, you should indicate your status as a Certified Local Vendor.
During the bid evaluation process, any vendor who meets the criteria for certification will have their bid price reduced by five percent (5%), not to exceed a maximum reduction of $10,000.00. If after the application of the Local Vendor Preference, if the vendor is determined to be the low responsive/responsible bidder, they will receive the award. The award price will reflect their original amount before the Local Vendor Preference was applied.
