Duval County Public Schools reserves the right to cancel any contract, if in its opinion, there be a failure at any time to perform adequately the stipulations of this invitation to bid, and general conditions and specifications which are attached and made part of this bid, or in any case of any attempt to willfully impose upon Duval County Public Schools materials or products or workmanship which is, in the opinion of Duval County Public Schools, of an unacceptable quality. Any action taken in pursuance of this latter stipulation shall not affect or impair any rights or claim of Duval County Public Schools to damages for the breach of any covenants of the contract by the contractor. Duval County Public Schools also reserves the right to reject the bid of any bidder who has previously failed to perform adequately after having once been awarded a prior bid for furnishing materials similar in nature to those materials mentioned in this bid. Should the contractor fail to comply with the conditions of this contract or fail to complete the required work or furnish the required materials within the time stipulated in the contract, Duval County Public Schools reserves the right to purchase in the open market, or to complete the required work, at the expense of the contractor or by recourse to provisions of the faithful performance bond if such bond is required under the conditions of this bid.

Tabulated bids are then evaluated on the basis of price. The lowest price bid will be evaluated to determine responsiveness. If the bid is responsive, it will be recommended for award. If the bid is not responsive, it will not be recommended for award and the next lowest price bid will be evaluated to determine responsiveness. This process will continue in succession until the lowest responsive bid is evaluated and is recommended for award. If the bid contains multiple items that are to be awarded independently, this process is completed for each item in the bid. Tie bids are decided by tie breaking procedures outlined in purchasing policy. PURCHASES: Award does not constitute and order.

ITB-020-18/CP SP-1 SPECIFICATIONS INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT (IPM) A. It is the desire of Duval County Public Schools to continue Integrated Pest Management (IPM) procedures for control of structural and landscape pests as referenced under IPM Policy Statement by United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and University of Florida (UF). IPM involves controlling pests by the most practical mechanical, physical, cultural, or biological methods first. It includes, if necessary, the judicial use of chemical control with the least harm to people and the environment. It involves preplanned steps of attack to continually keep pest populations below intolerable levels. Strategies for maintaining pest populations will be influenced by the pest species and whether or not that species poses a threat to people, property, or the environment. IPM procedures will determine when to control pests and whether practitioners are expected to use current comprehensive information on the pest and its environment and the best available pest control method. B. The District’s intentions are to use IPM principles to prevent unacceptable levels of pest activity and damage by the most economical means and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment. The choice of using a pesticide will be based on a review of all other available options and a determination that these options are not acceptable and/or feasible. Selected non-chemical pest management methods will be implemented whenever possible to provide the desired control. When it is determined that a pesticide must be used in order to meet management goals, the least hazardous will be chosen. The application of pesticides is subject to the Federal Insecticide Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (7 United States Code 136), School District Policies and Procedures, Environmental Protection Agency Regulations in Code 40 of Federal Regulations, Occupational Safety and Health Administration Regulations, and State and Local Regulations. C.
