SECTION 2000.320 CANCELLATION OF INVITATION
Section 2000.320 Cancellation of Invitation
Invitation for Bids may be cancelled prior to award or after consideration of protest and all bids rejected prior to award when such action is in the best interests of the Agency. Every effort shall be made to anticipate necessity of rejection to avoid additional procurement costs and exposure of bid prices. Reasons for rejecting all bids are:
a) Inadequate, ambiguous, or otherwise deficient specifications were cited in the Invitation for Bids.
b) The goods or services are no longer required.
c) The Invitation for Bids did not provide for consideration of all factors of cost to the Agency.
d) Bids received indicate that the needs of the Agency can be satisfied by a less expensive good or service differing from that on which the bids were invited.
e) All otherwise acceptable bids received are at unreasonable prices as compared to the estimated cost of the project.
f) The bids were not independently arrived at in open competition, were collusive, or were submitted in bad faith.
g) Time factors for delivery do not allow acceptance.
