5.33.645 Rejection of All Offers.

(Amended by Ordinance No. 185898, effective February 20, 2013.)

A.  Rejection. The City may reject all Offers for good cause upon the City’s Written finding it is in the public interest to do so. The City shall notify all Offerors of the rejection of all Offers, along with the good cause justification and finding.

B.  Criteria. The City may reject all Offers upon a Written finding that:

1.  The content of or an error in the Solicitation Document, or the Solicitation process unnecessarily restricted competition for the Contract;

2.  The price, quality or performance presented by the Offerors is too costly or of insufficient quality to justify acceptance of the Offer;

3.  Misconduct, error, or ambiguous, conflicting  or misleading provisions in the Solicitation Document threaten the fairness and integrity of the competitive process;

4.  Causes other than legitimate market forces threaten the integrity of the competitive Solicitation process. These causes include, but are not limited to, those that tend to limit competition such as restrictions on competition, collusion, corruption, unlawful anti-competitive conduct, and inadvertent or intentional errors in the Solicitation Document;

5.  The City cancels the Solicitation in accordance with Section 5.33.660; or

6.   Any other circumstance indicating that Awarding the Contract would not be in the public interest.
