It is the intent of the Benton County Board of Supervisors that the specifications obtain a product that will adequately meet the needs of Benton County while promoting the greatest extent of competition possible.  Further, it is not the intent of these minimum specifications to eliminate any domestic manufacturer or unnecessarily restrict competition.

The Benton County Board of Supervisors reserves the right to reject any and all bids.  The Board also reserves the right to reject any and all bids based in errors in formula(s).
The Board reserves the right to waive minor bid technicalities when it is in the best interest of Benton County.  If award is made by the Board, a Purchase Order will be forwarded to the successful bidder.  Any action taken by a bidder prior to receipt of the properly executed Contract and/or Purchase Order document by the Benton County Purchase Clerk will be at the bidder’s OWN RISK and the Benton County Board of Supervisors will not be liable for such action.
The county reserves the right to utilize “anti-sniping” for reverse auctions.  Anti-sniping is a tool that automatically extends the bid time for a reverse auction by five (5) minutes if a vendor places a bid in the final five (5) minutes of the reverse auction.  The anti-sniping effect will auto extend the reverse auction bid time any time a bid is placed in the last five (5) minutes of the reverse auction and can auto extend the reverse auction multiple times until the bidding on the reverse auction ends.
All bids submitted must be honored for a minimum of 90 days after the reverse auction date to allow proper time for the Board to evaluate the proposals, make an award decision, and initiate the Purchase Order process.
