IF THE ENGINEER’S CONSTRUCTION COST ESTIMATE IS $50,000 OR MORE, Bidders shall comply with MSD's Supplier Diversity (MBE/WBE Participation) Contractor Compliance Program (CCP). See MSD Construction-Related MBE/WBE Documents and Forms. The CCP is considered as one of the elements of responsiveness in a bid. Bidders must subcontract at least 15% of the total amount of the Contract Bid price to a certified MBE and 6% to a certified WBE, or the bidder must have submitted adequate documentation for failure to do so (see the CCP for specific requirements). Each bidder is responsible for careful review of the MBE/WBE CCP requirements contained in the bid documents. Failure to fully comply with the CCP may be grounds for rejection of the bid as non responsive.

MSD shall give preference to a resident bidder of the Commonwealth in the evaluation of this Bid, in conformance with MSD’s Procurement Regulations, Section 2A-13 as adopted by MSD’s Board September 27, 2010, which provides as follows:

a. MSD shall give a preference to a resident bidder of the Commonwealth as against a nonresident bidder registered in any state that gives or requires a preference to bidders from that state. The preference given shall be equal to the preference given or required by the state of the nonresident bidder. A resident bidder is any business entity that is authorized to transact business in the Commonwealth and has, for one year prior to and through the date of the advertisement, filed Kentucky corporate income taxes, made payments to the Kentucky unemployment insurance fund established in KRS 341.490 and maintained a Kentucky workers’ compensation policy in effect.

b. If a procurement determination results in a tie between a resident bidder and a nonresident bidder, preference shall be given to the resident bidder.

c. The preference for resident bidders shall not be given if the preference conflicts with federal law.

All bidders must submit a completed and signed Resident Bidder Preference Certification Affidavit along with their bid proposal. The Affidavit should be included in the bid package. This form may be found on MSD's website at Miscellaneous MSD Forms and Documents.
