Mandatory Pre-Bid Meetings

Due to the importance of all bidders having a clear understanding of the specifications and scope of work requirements in certain solicitations, attendance at mandatory pre-bid conferences is a prerequisite for submitting a bid.   Bids will only be accepted from those who are represented at the bid conference.   Attendance at the pre-bid conference will be evidenced by the representative's signature on the attendance roster.

It is a policy of James Madison University, Procurement Services that no bidder will be admitted more than ten (10) minutes after the official start time of a mandatory pre-bid conference.   The time and place of pre-bid meetings will be noted in the solicitation. This allowance only applies to solicitations issued from central Procurement Services for goods and services.   It does not apply to non-capital facilities construction or capital construction procurements.  Any start time information notated within the official solicitation documents takes precedence.
