Iowa Admin. Code r. 531-2.11 - Tie bids

Current through Register Vol. 44, No. 20, April 6, 2022

The lottery shall resolve ties among bids or proposals which are equal in all respects by drawing lots unless only one of the tied bidders is an Iowa business. If only one of the bidders tied for an award is an Iowa business, the Iowa business shall be given preference over all tied out-of-state businesses.

If it is necessary to draw lots, the drawing shall be held in the presence of the vendors who submitted the tied bids or proposals whenever practical. If the tied vendors are not present, the drawing shall be held in front of at least two persons, and the lottery shall document the drawing.

This rule is intended to implement Iowa Code Supplement sections 99G.7, 99G.9, 99G.2I, and 99G.23.
