A non-mandatory Pre-Bid Conference will be held at the Township Building, 515 Millers Run Road, South Fayette PA 15064 at 2 PM, prevailing time, on December 22, 2021. A site tour will be conducted after the conference. The purpose of the Pre-Bid meeting will be to address and consider all questions posed by bidders and disseminate timely information. The meeting will be open to all prime contractors and subcontract bidders. All information given at this meeting will be considered part of the contract documents, via addendum, and is to be included in the bids.


The bidding process will be managed through PennBid. All bid documents will be available for download starting December 14, 2021 at 9 AM. All addendums and RFIs will be managed through PennBid as well. No RFIs will be considered after the date indicated at the pre-bid meeting or seven days prior to the bid submission deadline.


Bids must be accompanied by bid security in the amount of 10% of the Base Bid in one of the following forms naming South Fayette Township as payee or obligee as applicable: certified check, bank cashier's check, letter of credit, or bid bond in the required form by a corporate surety authorized to do business in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and acceptable to the Township.


The Owner is requesting bids to be made “net of insurance” and will award the contract to the lowest responsible bidder “net of insurance,” all as more thoroughly described in the Contract Documents. Under this approach, Contractors and Subcontractors must remove the cost of Owner provided insurance from the Base Bid price. The lowest responsible bidder will be determined on a “net of insurance” basis. In other words, the Base Bid is to be identified by the Contractor excluding costs and expenses for General Liability, Umbrella/Excess Liability, Workers’ Compensation, and Builder’s Risk Insurance as delineated in the contract documents. Alternate Bids and Unit Prices are also to be set forth excluding cost for such insurance. The Owner will select which alternates it desires and will determine the low bidder based upon the bids without insurance being provided by the Contractor.

South Fayette Township shall award the contract to the lowest responsible and responsive bidder or shall reject all bids within 90 days following the date of bid opening, and no bidder may withdraw its bid before the expiration of such 90 day period; provided, however, that if the award of the contract is delayed by required approval of another governmental agency, the sale of bonds, or the award of a grant, South Fayette Township shall reject all bids or award the contract to the lowest responsible and responsive bidder within 120 days of the date of bid opening, and no bidder may withdraw its bid before the expiration of such 120 day period. Thirty day extensions of the date for the award of the contract may be made by the mutual written consent of the Township and the lowest responsible and responsive bidder. Bids may be withdrawn after opening only as set forth in PA Act 4 Pennsylvania Public Contract Bid Withdrawal Law, 72 P.S. 1601 et seq. (Act 4 of 1974), as amended from time to time.
