Procurement Policy — See Ch. 70.
The Town of Clinton hereby agrees to participate in the cooperative bidding with the Interagency Purchasing Cooperative of commodities/services requested and approved by the appropriate fiscal officer.
Under this agreement, it is understood and agreed that each participating entity will make its own separate purchase agreement with selected bidders, that each entity shall only be liable to the successful bidder for materials/supplies/services contracted for by such entity, without any liability for purchases contracted for by any other participating entity, and each bid winner shall be required to bill each participating entity directly for purchases contracted by it.
It is further understood that in the event of any dispute between participating entities and the bid winner arising after a contract of purchase has been executed, such dispute shall be handled by and between the affected parties with said parties holding harmless the Cooperative (IPC).
The specifications as prepared by the Interagency Purchasing Cooperative designated agency and made available to the participating entity under this agreement are accepted for purchase at the lowest responsible bid price recommended by the Interagency Purchasing Cooperative (IPC); however, each entity has the right to reject all or part of the designated agency recommendation for the local bid award.
The invitation to bid will be advertised by the designated agency in the official newspaper of the Town in accordance with the provisions of § 103 of the General Municipal Law.
Editor's Note: Amended at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. I).
