A.  City Authorization. The Chief Procurement Officer may authorize Offerors to submit Facsimile Offers. If the City determines that a Bid or Proposal Security is or will be required, the City should not authorize Facsimile Offers unless the City has another method for receipt of such security. Prior to authorization, the City must determine whether the City’s equipment and personnel are capable of receiving the size and volume of anticipated Offers within a short period of time and establish administrative procedures and controls:


1.  For receiving, identifying, recording, and safeguarding Facsimile Offers, and


2.  To ensure timely delivery of Offers to the location of Opening; and

3.  That Offerors must Sign their Facsimile Offers.
