Due to recent processing improvements by the Department of Management & Budget (DMB) and the Department of Civil Rights (DCR) concerning Certificates of Awardability, consideration may be given to bids received while final certification is still pending. In order to qualify for such consideration a bidder who does not possess a Certificate of Awardability valid through the bid opening date must do the following:
Notify MDCR in writing, by sending a facsimile (fax) to 313-456-3826 at least 3 business days prior to the bid opening date, that the bidder has submitted a bid contingent upon a pending Certificate of Awardability. Notice shall indicate the contract bid upon, the scheduled bid opening date, the name and phone number(s) of a contact person able to speak for the bidder on the subject of awardability, and the date on which the bidder's application for Certificate of Awardability was initially filed.
Ensure that all information required on the application for Certificate of Awardability was provided to MDCR.
