*Addenda:

All procurement solicitations are subject to change at any time up to 72 hours prior to the submittal deadline for construction-related purchasing; 48 hours prior to the submittal deadline, excluding weekends and legal holidays, for non-construction-related purchasing. Changes to procurement solicitations are typically issued in the form of addenda. More than one addendum may be issued per solicitation. Addenda to procurement solicitations are typically posted in the table above. The City assumes no responsibility for informing vendors of the issuance of addenda. Rather, vendors who wish to compete for a particular procurement opportunity are exclusively responsible for determining whether any addenda have been issued for the corresponding solicitation.

**Notice of intent to award:

Posting tabulations of submittals in the Table of Business Opportunities above functions as the Franklin Purchasing Office issuing notice of intent to award for procurement solicitations facilitated by the Franklin Purchasing Office, and thus commences a finite window of opportunity for vendors to file a protest.  A vendor who feels the need to object to either a deficiency of a procurement solicitation or a proposed award pertaining to a procurement solicitation facilitated by the Franklin Purchasing Office are encouraged to express their concerns to and seek remedy from the Purchasing Manager. Vendors who are not satisfied with, or who choose not to pursue, such an informal resolution of their concerns and who feel compelled to lodge a formal protest about some aspect of a City procurement not related to new construction shall do so pursuant to the City’s Vendor Protest Procedure for City procurement's not pertaining to the design and/or construction of new infrastructure and facilities, a mandatory administrative procedure which all aggrieved actual or prospective vendors must utilize and exhaust prior to seeking judicial review or remedy.


Questions, requests for clarifications, and requests to revise the procurement solicitation: To ask questions, to request clarifications about any aspect of a particular procurement solicitation, or to request revisions to a procurement solicitation prior to the deadline for optional submittal in writing of questions seeking to revise or clarify any aspect of that procurement solicitation, please contact the City point of contact identified for the respective procurement solicitation. Depending upon the inquiry, the City may request that the question, request for clarification, or request for revision be submitted in writing, and the City may prepare and issue an addendum that publishes the inquiry and the City’s response thereto.

Communication with City during procurement phase: Any questions about either the content of or the process pertaining to a particular procurement solicitation should be addressed as described above. Until the procurement award has been made, vendors shall not communicate about either the content of or the process pertaining to that procurement solicitation with any official, employee or other representative of the City except through the City point of contact identified for the respective procurement solicitation. The City reserves the right to disqualify any vendor that initiates unauthorized communication with the City during the procurement phase.
