This certification must be provided with the bid. The provisions of this law require that the contractor shall submit to the Mississippi Department of Employment Security and the City of Long Beach an employment plan within seven (7) calendar days after the award of the contract by the governing authority.

Bids may be held by the City of Long Beach, Mississippi, for a period not to exceed ninety (90) days from the date of the opening of bids for the purpose of reviewing the bids and investigating the qualifications of Bidders, prior to awarding of the Contract.
