The teleconference will be made available by calling the following: Dial-in Number (504) 323-1800, Meeting ID: 17366690. However, failure to attend the pre-bid conference shall not relieve the bidder of responsibility for information discussed at the conference.

Each bid must be accompanied by a cashier’s check, certified check, or surety bid bond in the amount of 5% of the total bid amount WHEN INDICATED IN THE SPECIFICATIONS.

No scanned paper copies of any bid bond will be accepted as part of the electronic bid submission.
The Jefferson Parish Council reserves the right to reject all bids and to reject bids for just cause, pursuant to the law. Jefferson Parish and its partners as the recipients of federal funds are fully committed to awarding a contract(s) to firm(s) that will provide high quality services and that are dedicated to diversity and to containing costs. Thus, Jefferson Parish strongly encourages the involvement of minority and/or woman-owned business enterprises (DBE’s, including MBE’s, WBE’s and SBE’s) to stimulate participation in procurement and assistance programs.
