The Atlantic Provinces Standard Terms & Conditions for Goods and Services apply 
to this procurement and are considered to be incorporated into this document. By 
submitting a bid, you agree and accept these terms and conditions. Current "Atlantic 
Provinces Standard Terms and Conditions" are available on the New Brunswick 
Opportunities Network, the Council of Atlantic Premiers' Website or from an authorized 
service provider.

A bidder must obtain official bid documents from a distribution service, authorized 
by the Minister of Service New Brunswick, in order to submit a bid.  The current 
authorized distribution services are the New Brunswick Opportunities Network 
(NBON) (operated by Service New Brunswick, Province of NB), BIDS (operated 
by Tendering Publications Ltd.) and MERX (operated by Mediagrif Interactive 
Technologies).  Failure to submit the official bid documents or provide proof 
that the
official bid documents were properly obtained will result in rejection of the 
bid.  In order to facilitate the evaluation process, Bidders are requested to 
respond in the same format as the official bid documents.

Where the estimated value of the goods or services to be procured is below
the lowest applicable threshold value of any relevant trade agreement, Service 
New Brunswick reserves the right to give preferential treatment to a prospective 
supplier from New Brunswick or the Atlantic Region. Should this right be exercised, 
the following order of priority will apply: a) firstly, New Brunswick manufacturers 
if the goods to be procured are manufactured in New Brunswick; b) secondly, New 
Brunswick vendors; and c) thirdly, Atlantic Suppliers. The preference will be 
applied based
on the price differential
between the lowest acceptable bid and the bid receiving preferential treatment. 
Unless otherwise indicated, there shall be no limit on the price differential 
under which a preference may be applied. The decision to apply a preference will 
be at the sole discretion of Service New Brunswick.

All discounts quoted will be considered to be without limitations.

Payment of invoices is the responsibility of the department or organization to 
whom the goods are shipped or services are supplied.

Award of contracts: no contract shall be awarded and no payment shall be made to 
a vendor unless authorized by the Minister or his delegates. The Minister may 
make an award to the preferred vendor conditional on the negotiation and acceptance 
of a detailed contract between the Province and the vendor. In such cases, should 
the detailed contract negotiations not be completed in a reasonable period of 
time, the Province reserves the right to discontinue negotiations with the vendor 
and
subsequently enter into negotiations with the second preferred vendor.

No right or duty, in whole or in part, of the vendor under a contract issued may 
be assigned or delegated without the prior consent of the Strategic Procurement 
Branch.

Unless the Strategic Procurement Branch has determined otherwise prior to tender 
closing, all prices must be extended and totaled.

The province of New Brunswick reserves the right to negotiate pricing, value added 
and other savings opportunities with the successful proponent at time of award 
and throughout the contract.
