Bookmobile specifications submitted in paper form must have "Bookmobile Specifications" written on the outside of the sealed envelope.
Vendors' bookmobile specifications will be evaluated and vendors submitting acceptable specifications will be invited by email to submit priced bids via a live electronic reverse auction.
Final bidding for the Bookmobile will be held by a live electronic reverse auction at www.centralauctionhouse.com on Thursday, November 7, 2019, beginning at 10:00 a.m. CDT, with a scheduled ending time of 11:00 a.m. CDT. Anti-sniping will be utilized for the live electronic reverse auction, which means that the bid deadline will be automatically extended by five minutes anytime a bid is received within the final five minutes of the reverse auction. The anti-sniping tool can extend the bid deadline multiple times until no bid is received in the final five minutes of the reverse auction.
The Lee Itawamba Library System reserves the right to reject any and all bids and to wave any informalities. No award will automatically result from this reverse auction. The purchasing agency will review the results of the auction and make a determination in a timely manner.
