At the end of the Contract’s initial term, the University shall have the option, in its sole discretion, to renew the Contract on the same terms and conditions for two (2) additional one-year terms. The University will give the Vendor written notice of its intent to exercise the option to renew by the end of the then-current term. In addition, the University reserves the right to extend a contract term after the last active term.

Other than through this process, the University rejects and will not be required to evaluate or consider any additional or modified terms and conditions submitted with Vendor’s bid. This applies to any language appearing in or attached to the document as part of the Vendor’s bid that purports to vary any terms and conditions or Vendors’ instructions herein or to render the bid non-binding or subject to further negotiation. Vendor’s bid shall constitute a firm offer. By execution and delivery of this IFB Response, the Vendor agrees that any additional or modified terms and conditions, whether submitted purposely or inadvertently, shall have no force or effect, and will be disregarded. Noncompliance with, or any attempt to alter or delete, this paragraph shall constitute sufficient grounds to reject Vendor’s bid as nonresponsive.

If a Vendor chooses to respond with various offerings, each must be offered with a separate price and be contained in a separate bid document. Each bid must be complete and independent of other bids offered. 2.9 RESERVED 3.0 METHOD OF AWARD AND BID EVALUATION PROCESS 3.1 METHOD OF AWARD North Carolina G.S. 143-52 provides a list of criteria the State shall use to award contracts. The goods or services being procured shall dictate the application and order of criteria; however, all award decisions shall be in the University’s best interest. While the intent of this IFB is to award a Contract to a single Vendor for all line items/portions, the University reserves the right to make separate awards to different Vendors for one or more items/portions, to not award one or more items/portions, or to cancel this IFB in its entirety without awarding a Contract, if it is considered to be most advantageous to the University to do so. If a Vendor selected for award is determined by the University to be a non-resident of North Carolina, all responsive bids will be reviewed to determine if any of them were submitted by a North Carolina resident Vendor who requested an opportunity to match the price of the winning bid, pursuant to Executive Order #50 and G.S. 143-59 (for more information, please refer to ATTACHMENT H: VENDOR REQUEST FOR EXECUTIVE ORDER #50 PRICE MATCHING. If such bid(s) are identified, the University will then determine whether any such bid falls within the price-match range, and, if so, make a Contract award in accordance with the process that implements G.S. 143-59 and Executive Order #50. The University reserves the right to waive any minor informality or technicality in bids received. 3.2 CONFIDENTIALITY AND PROHIBITED COMMUNICATIONS DURING EVALUATION While this IFB is under evaluation, the bidder, including any subcontractors and suppliers are prohibited from engaging in conversations intended to influence the outcome of the evaluation. See the Paragraph 29, CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION and Paragraph 30, COMMUNICATIONS BY VENDORS of the INSTRUCTIONS TO VENDORS. 3.3 BID EVALUATION PROCESS Only responsive submissions will be evaluated. The University will conduct an evaluation of responsive Bids, as follows: Bids will be received according to the method stated in the BID SUBMITTAL section. Bid Number: 66-23017 DH Rev: 01/2022 Page 8 of 21 All bids must be received via NC BIDS not later than the date and time specified on the cover sheet of this IFB. At the date and time specified as the bid opening, the bid responses from each responding Vendor will be opened publicly and the name of the Vendor and bid’s total cost will be announced. Interested parties are cautioned that these costs and their components are subject to further evaluation for completeness and correctness and therefore may not be an exact indicator of a Vendor’s pricing position. If negotiation is anticipated under 01 NCAC 05B.0503, pricing may not be public until award. At their sole option, the evaluators may request oral presentations or discussions with any or all Vendors for the purpose of clarification or to amplify the materials presented in any part of the bid. Vendors are cautioned, however, that the evaluators are not required to request presentations or other clarification—and often do not. Therefore, all bids should be complete and reflect the most favorable terms available from the Vendor. Prices bid cannot be altered or modified as part of a clarification. Bids will generally be evaluated, based on completeness, content, cost, and responsibility of the Vendor to supply the requested goods and services. Specific evaluation criteria are listed in Section 3.1 METHOD OF AWARD. Upon completion of the evaluation process, the University will make Award(s) based on the evaluation and post the award(s) to IPS under the IFB number for this solicitation. Award of a Contract to one Vendor does not mean that the other bids lacked merit, but that, all factors considered, the selected bid was deemed most advantageous and represented the best value to the University. 3.4 PERFORMANCE OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES Vendor shall complete ATTACHMENT F: LOCATION OF WORKERS UTILIZED BY VENDOR. In addition to any other evaluation criteria identified in this IFB, the University may also consider—for purposes of evaluating proposed or actual contract performance outside of the United States and to ensure that any award will be in the best interest of the University—how that performance may affect or be affected by the following factors: a) Total cost to the University b) Level of quality provided by the Vendor c) Process and performance capability across multiple jurisdictions d) Protection of the University’s information and intellectual property e) Availability of pertinent skills f) Ability to understand the University’s business requirements and internal operational culture g) Particular risk factors such as the security of the University’s information technology h) Relations with citizens and employees i) Contract enforcement jurisdictional issues 3.5 INTERPRETATION OF TERMS AND PHRASES This Invitation for Bids serves two functions: (1) to advise potential Vendors of the parameters of the solution being sought by the Department; and (2) to provide (together with other specified documents) the terms of the Contract that results from this procurement. As such, all terms in the Invitation for Bids shall be enforceable as contract terms in accordance with the North Carolina General Contract Terms and Conditions. The use of phrases such as “shall,” “must,” and “requirements” are intended to create enforceable contract conditions. In determining whether bids should be evaluated or rejected, the Department will take into consideration the degree to which Vendors have proposed or failed to propose solutions that will satisfy the Department’s needs as described in the Invitation for Bids. Except as specifically stated in the Invitation for Bids, no one requirement shall automatically disqualify a Vendor from consideration. However, failure to comply with any single requirement, if determined to be essential under the circumstances then existing, may result in the Department exercising its discretion to reject a bid in its entirety. 4.0 REQUIREMENTS This Section lists the requirements related to this IFB. By submitting a bid, the Vendor agrees to meet all stated requirements in this Section and as otherwise stated in this IFB. If a Vendor is unclear about a requirement or believes Bid Number: 66-23017 DH Rev: 01/2022 Page 9 of 21 a change in a requirement would allow for the University to receive a better bid, the Vendor is encouraged to submit these items in the form of a question during the question and answer period. 4.1 PRICING Bid price shall include the total price for each item, including shipping, delivery, handling, administrative and other similar fees.

It is agreed between the parties hereto that the place of this Agreement, its situs and forum, is Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, and that in said County and State such matters, whether sounding in contract or tort, and relating to the validity, construction, interpretation, and enforcement of this Agreement, will be determined in accordance with the substantive law of North Carolina. mailto:Purchasing@uncc.edu Bid Number: 66-23017 DH Rev: 01/2022 Page 19 of 21 The Contractor is responsible for the proper custody and care of any property furnished to it for use in connection with the performance of this Agreement, or purchased for this Agreement, and must reimburse the University for any loss or damage due to the Contractor’s negligence or neglect. The Contractor will take affirmative action in complying with all Federal and State requirements concerning fair employment and employment of people with disabilities, and concerning the treatment of all employees without regard to discrimination by reason of race, color, religion, sex, national origin or disability. Contractor and any subcontractors, if it has fifty (50) or more employees, shall abide by the requirements of 41 CFR §§ 60-1.4(a), 60-300.5(a) and 60-741.5(a). These regulations prohibit discrimination against qualified individuals based on their status as protected veterans or individuals with disabilities, and prohibit discrimination against all individuals based on their race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. Moreover, these regulations require that covered prime contractors and subcontractors take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment individuals without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, protected veteran status or disability. If this contract involves software or electronic media, Contractor warrants that its product or service complies with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, or WCAG 2.0 AA with respect to accessibility for individuals with disabilities. In the event that the University receives any complaints or concerns regarding the accessibility of the product or service, Contractor agrees promptly to respond to and resolve those concerns. Further, Contractor agrees to indemnify and hold University harmless for any claims arising from the inaccessibility of its product or service. Neither party shall be deemed to be in default of its obligations hereunder if and so long as it is prevented from performing such obligations by an act of war, hostile foreign action, nuclear explosion, earthquake, hurricane, tornado, or other catastrophic natural event or act of God (a ‘Force Majeure’ event). The Contractor must comply with all laws, ordinances, codes, rules, regulations, and licensing requirements that are applicable to the conduct of his business, including those of Federal, State, and local agencies having jurisdiction and/or authority. No advertisement or other public statement by the Contractor or its agents in connection with this Agreement, in any manner or medium, will assert or imply that University supports, approves, or endorses any product, service, interest, position, or ideology of the Contractor without prior, written approval from the University. The Contractor is retained by the University solely for those purposes and to the extent set forth in this Agreement. Contractor's relation to the University during the term of this agreement is that of independent contractor. Contractor does not have employee status and is not entitled to Bid Number: 66-23017 DH Rev: 01/2022 Page 20 of 21 participate in any plan, arrangements, or distributions by the University pertaining to or in connection with any qualified pension plan or providing any other health or welfare plan with similar benefits for regular University employees. Contractor is responsible for the payment of any taxes on any monies received by the Contractor. If the Contractor is an individual, i.e. not a corporation or an LLC, he is responsible for his own federal and state taxes. Additionally, if the individual is not a resident of North Carolina and is not otherwise exempt from federal income taxation or exempt under NC General Statute 105-163.1, UNC Charlotte will withhold a 4% nonresident income tax from payment(s) greater than $1,500 to the Contractor during any one calendar year for the consultation or Contractor’s services, in accordance with NC General Statutes 105-163.1 - 163.3. The Contractor may not represent themselves as an employee or agent of UNC Charlotte. Payments made directly or indirectly to foreign national individuals or companies may be subject to an additional withholding tax of as much as 30%. Any contracted services with foreign national individuals or companies are contingent on proper immigration authorization. As required by section 143-133.3 of the North Carolina General Statutes, the Contractor certifies that it, and each of its subcontractors, verifies the work authorization of each of its employees under E-Verify. Pursuant to the Iran Divestment Act of 2015, N.C. Gen. Stat. § 147-86.55, et seq. (Session Law 2015-118), Contractor certifies that, as of the date of this contract, it is not listed on the Final Divestment List created by the State Treasurer and available at www.nctreasurer.com. Contractor further certifies that none of its subcontractors that will perform services under this contract are included on the Final Divestment List. The Contractor shall hold and save the State, its officers, agents, and employees, harmless from liability of any kind, including all claims and losses accruing or resulting to any other person, firm, or corporation furnishing or supplying work, services, materials, or supplies in connection with the performance of this agreement, and from any and all claims and losses accruing or resulting to any person, firm, or corporation that may be injured or damaged by the Contractor in the performance of this agreement and that are attributable to the negligence or intentionally tortious acts of the Contractor provided that the Contractor is notified in writing within 30 days that the State has knowledge of such claims. The Contractor represents and warrants that it shall make no claim of any kind or nature against the State’s agents who are involved in the delivery or processing of Contractor goods to the State. The representation and warranty in the preceding sentence shall survive the termination or expiration of this agreement. NOTICE FOR FORMER STATE EMPLOYEES NOW RETIRED AND RECEIVING STATE RETIRMENT SYSTEM BENEFITS: State retirees returning to work for a state entity, even as an independent contractor, may be at risk of losing their retirement benefit and having to repay benefits already received. Under the new State definition of "retirement," a State employee may only receive their retirement benefit when that person has: (1) completely separated from active service with "no intent or agreement, express or implied, to return"; and (2) not performed work of any kind for the State, including "part-time, temporary, substitute, or contractor service," during the first six months following retirement. Bid Number: 66-23017 DH Rev: 01/2022 Page 21 of 21 Earnings limits for State retirees also apply. The formation of a corporation does not exempt retired employees from the statutory earnings cap. If the corporation is formed for the purpose of providing services to a State employer based on a contract, and the employees are primarily State retirees, then the corporation is not exempt from earnings restrictions. However, if a retiree goes to work for an established corporation that (1) has multiple employees not predominately former State employees, and (2) the corporation provides contract services to multiple employers that are not Public agencies, then those earnings would not be subject to restrictions under N.C.G.S.135-3(8)c. ACCESS TO PERSONS AND RECORDS: The State or university auditor shall have access to persons and records as a result of all agreements or grants entered into by State agencies or political subdivisions in accordance with General Statute 147-64.7. All promises, requirements, terms, conditions, provisions, representations, guarantees, and warranties contained herein shall survive the agreement expiration or termination date unless specifically provided otherwise herein, or unless superseded by applicable Federal or State statutes of limitations. This Agreement and any documents incorporated specifically by reference represent the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes all prior oral or written statements or agreement. This Agreement may be amended only by written amendments duly executed by the University and Contractor. IN WITNESS THEREOF, the parties have executed this Agreement in counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original. Facsimile copies or Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) copies sent by email shall be considered for all purposes as originals, effective the day and year first written above. SIGNATURES
