Or. Admin. R. 629-029-0035 - Time For Receipt of Bids
(1) Time for the closing of bids: Bids shall be received in the designated place and manner until the time set for the close of the receipt of bids. No bid shall be received after the time appointed unless the time for the receipt of bids is expanded in the manner set out below. The STATE's agent designated for the receipt of bids shall determine when the time set for receipt has expired by reference to a clock maintained by the STATE in the place designated for the receipt of bids in the Invitation for Bids. In the absence of such a clock or in the event that the agent determines that the clock is inaccurate, the agent shall determine expiration of the time set for receipt of bids by whatever means the agent determines to be appropriate under the circumstances. The agent's determination shall not be subject to review.
(2) The time set for the receipt of bids may be extended at the sole discretion of the STATE:
(a) By written amendment to the Notice of Timber Sale which shall be effective when issued and which will be provided to persons who have requested a copy of the Notice of Timber Sale; or
(b) orally prior to the time set for the close of bids if the STATE's agent determines that events have occurred that have restricted competition by preventing potential bidders from making a submittal including but not limited to: road closures, unusually severe weather, acts of God or acts of the public enemy, physical obstruction of access to the bid depository and similar occurrences beyond the control of bidders. Such postponement shall be confirmed in writing to each person who submitted a bid and to persons who have requested a copy of the Notice of Timber Sale on the next business day. The time for receipt of bids shall be extended at least two business days from the day the notice is issued.
(3) The time set for the receipt of bids shall not be extended if the time set for the receipt of bids has expired and the envelope enclosing a sealed bid has been opened.
(4) The judgment of the STATE in electing to extend the time for the receipt of bids is not subject to review.
