  • Knowledgebase-Bidding Requirements
    be no question what the Town should do But that is not the case There is no requirement in the Municipal Purchasing Law that the Town accept the lowest bid There is also no requirement that the Town accept the lowest and best bid or the lowest responsible bid Of course one purpose of competitive bidding laws is to provide bidders a fair opportunity to compete for public contracts State ex rel Leech v Wright 622 S W 2d 807 815 Tenn 1981 Therefore there is an implied obligation to consider all bids honestly and fairly Computer Shoppe Inc v State 780 S W 2d 729 737 Tenn App 1989 This is why the Town should be cautious in accepting a bid other than the lowest one T C A 6 56 306 gives the Town authority to adopt regulations providing procedures for implementing the provisions of this part This would include the authority to reserve the right to reject any or all bids The Town did this in its Invitation to Bid and could possibly have ordinances or other regulations providing for this In a case that involved a requirement that the bid must be let to the lowest bidder who is financially responsible the federal court noted that Where there has been a reservation of the right to reject all bids the bidder on a public contract proposal is vested with no legal right to an acceptance of his bid even if it were the lowest bid Owen of Georgia Inc v Shelby Co 442 F Supp 314 at 318 W D Tenn 1977 A disappointed bidder has standing to challenge the award of the contract to another bidder but the relief available is limited to equitable or declaratory relief to ensure enforcement of required competitive bidding procedures

  • Knowledgebase-Bids for Fire Truck
    obtaining help from potential vendors in drawing bid specifications but obviously where the product of such collaboration makes it nearly impossible for other vendors to compete for a bid Leech comes into play The extent of the collaboration between the fire committee and the vendor for the fire truck is not shown in the documents The minutes of the board meeting on March 18 reflect an exchange among the board members on this topic and that the vendor admitted to helping the city with the specifications but exactly what help he gave is not indicated The minutes of the board s meeting on March 18 also reflect that Vendor One was called and asked it to submit a bid and that Vendor One s principal was reluctant to do so because it could not meet the Kenworth chassis specification There is also a strong indication in those minutes that Vendor One s principal was told that the city would accept its bid even if it did not meet specifications A city can negotiate with a successful bidder but cannot negotiate with bidders prior to the award of the bid Browning Ferris Industries of Tennessee Inc v City of Oak Ridge 644 S W 2d 400 Tenn App 1983 As pointed out above the cover letter for the bid specifications provides that In order for your bid to be accepted your company must meet all specifications Neither the city nor the board member in particular was entitled to negotiate away its bid specifications at least before the award of the bid In addition if the board member sought the first vendor s bid for the purpose of it being used as a strawman Vendor One was not operating on a level playing field Let me turn to other issues associated with the bid process 1 Open Records Law Apparently the bid specifications may have been developed by a fire committee of the board of mayor and aldermen without public notice If that is true it has been held in an unreported case that under Tennessee Open Meetings Law a municipal governing body may not act intentionally or unintentionally through its committees in a manner prohibited to the board itself Standard Publishing Co v City of McMinnville Tn Ct App filed April 25 1985 Because I cannot tell from the documents what actual part the fire committee played in the formation of the bid specifications I cannot say for sure that it violated the Open Meetings Law However because the Open Meetings Law is quite easy to violate it is wise policy for a municipal body to give public notice of all the meetings of its committees particularly where the committee in question has the authority to make decisions 2 Conflicts of Interest Law I have previously covered the question of whether various members of the board of mayor and aldermen have conflicts of interest in the letting of the bids for the fire truck 3 Lowest and best bid Let us
