Registration with Central Bidding and acceptance of the Central Bidding Agreement is not optional and is required in order to participate in this bidding event.  No exceptions will be made.  Bids will be received by an Electronic Sealed Bidding Process administered by Central Bidding at the CITY OF LAUREL City Clerk’s office, Laurel, Mississippi, on Tuesday, 11/13/2018 at 10:00 AM CST at which time bidding will begin and run until suppliers have completed entering all bids.  The City of Laurel reserves the right to reject any and/or all bids.

The city 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.
