Just a clarification question, is the bid submission postponed or just the opening, ie...are proposals still due tomorrow but the opening has been delayed until further notice, or is submission on hold as well?
Kasykoch12345 on 05-Nov-2020 12:10:42 PM
The addendum does not address how to handle the bid bond submission. How do we submit this, if not in physical form?
SDUFFY on 05-Nov-2020 12:21:30 PM

Thank you for clarification on the bid bond and that we must now submit on through your central bidding portal. However, we had prepared a hard copy to be submitted along with our original and hardcopies submissions. Can you tell me how quickly this online bonding process may take....and if we start this today, will we be able to make the deadline for tomorrow?
SDUFFY on 05-Nov-2020 01:07:11 PM
Please confer with the bonding agency that you choose from the list provided when you clicked on this link: https://www.centralauctionhouse.com/central-bidding/bid-bonds, The agencies will be able to give you a time frame.

(validation number)

Under the Submit RFP Page, it states that we need to enter a Contractor ID. Is this the same as our Vendor ID for State Procurement?
SDUFFY on 05-Nov-2020 04:19:25 PM
The ID number that is requested is your vendor number with Jefferson Parish. Please give me a call for your number. (504) 364-2682 direct line.

With the change in submitting our proposal to electronically and the Bond has to be submitted electronically, will the due date for the proposal be extended?
gulfcoast1 on 19-Nov-2020 11:16:57 AM
