LA Rev Stat § 39:1601 What's This?


§1601. Responsibility of bidders and offerors

A. A reasonable inquiry to determine the responsibility of a bidder or offeror may be conducted. The unreasonable failure of a bidder or offeror promptly to supply information in connection with such an inquiry may be grounds for a determination of nonresponsibility with respect to such bidder or offeror.

B. Whenever the Chief Procurement Officer, Commissioner or head of a governmental body with such authority proposes to disqualify the lowest bidder on bids of $5,000 or more such individual shall:

1) Give written notice of the proposed disqualification to such bidder and include in the written notice all reasons for the proposed disqualification; and

2) Give such bidder who is proposed to be disqualified, a reasonable opportunity to be heard at an informal hearing at which such bidder is afforded the opportunity to refute the reasons for the disqualification.

Added by Acts 1979, No. 715, §1, eff. July 1, 1980.
