A. General Terms and Conditions
1. Purpose: The purpose of these specifications is to require the furnishing of the highest quality equipment,
supplies, material and/or service in accordance with the specifications. These documents, and any subsequent
addenda, constitute the complete set of specification requirements and proposal response forms.
2. Governing Laws and Regulations: Any contract issued as a result of this RFP shall be construed according to
the laws of the State of Missouri. Additionally, the supplier shall comply with all local, state, and federal laws
and regulations related to the performance of the contract to the extent that the same may be applicable.
3. Taxes: The supplier shall assume and pay all taxes and contributions including, but not limited to, State, Federal
and Municipal which are payable by virtue of the furnishing and delivery of item(s) specified herein. Materials
and services furnished the University are not subject to either Federal Excise Taxes or Missouri Sales Tax.
4. Sovereign Immunity: The Curators of the University of Missouri, due to its status as a state entity and its
entitlement to sovereign immunity, is unable to accept contract provisions, which require The Curators to
indemnify another party (537.600, RSMo). Any indemnity language in proposed terms and conditions will be
modified to conform to language that The Curators are able to accept.
5. Preference for Missouri Firms: In accordance with University policy, preference shall be given to Missouri
products, materials, services, and firms when the goods or services to be provided are equally or better suited
for the intended purpose. In assessing overall value, consideration will be given to the extent to which proximity
or Missouri preference of the supplier provides potential advantages or reduction of risks. Firms are considered
"Missouri firms" if they maintain a regular place of business in the State of Missouri.
6. Appropriation: The Curators of the University of Missouri is a public corporation and, as such, cannot create
indebtedness in any one year (the fiscal year beginning July 1 to June 30) above what they can pay out of the
annual income of said year as set forth in 172.250, RSMo. Therefore, if the University determines it has not
received adequate appropriations, budget allocations or income to enable it to meet the terms of this contract,
the University reserves the right to cancel this contract with 30 days’ notice.
7. Equal Opportunity and Non-Discrimination: In connection with the furnishing of equipment, supplies, and/or
services under the contract, the contractor and all subcontractors shall agree not to discriminate against any
recipients of services, or employees or applicants for employment on the basis of race, color, religion, national
origin, sex, age, disability, or veteran status. The contractor shall comply with federal laws, rules, and
regulations applicable to subcontractors of government contracts including those relating to equal employment
of minorities, women, persons with disabilities, and certain veterans. Contract clauses required by the United
Sates Government in such circumstances are incorporated herein by reference.
8. Supplier Diversity Participation: The University of Missouri System is committed to and supports supplier
diversity as an essential part of the University’s mission and core values. To qualify as a Diverse Supplier, the
company must be at least 51% owned and controlled by someone in one of the recognized groups (see
below). These firms can be a sole proprietorship, partnership, joint venture or corporation. Diverse suppliers

Tier 2 Diverse Supplier Spending and Reporting: The University strongly encourages Supplier Diversity
participation in all contracts for goods and services. Tier 2 spend is spend reported by primary (non-diverse)

Respondent will achieve the Supplier Diversity goals. Evaluation of proposals shall include the proposed level
of Supplier Diversity participation. Proposals that do not meet the participation requirements for Supplier
Diversity will not receive any of the points during proposal review.
Suppliers will be responsible for reporting Tier 2 diverse supplier participation on an agreed upon timing (e.g.
quarterly, annually) when business is awarded.
The University may monitor the supplier’s compliance in meeting the Supplier Diversity participation levels
committed to in the awarded proposal. If the supplier’s payments to participating diverse suppliers are less
than the amount committed to in the contract, the University reserves the right to cancel the contract, suspend
and/or debar the supplier from participating in future contracts.
9. Applicable Laws and Regulations: The University serves from time to time as a contractor for the United States
government. Accordingly, the provider of goods and/or services shall comply with federal laws, rules and
regulations applicable to subcontractors of government contracts including those relating to equal employment
opportunity and affirmative action in the employment of minorities (Executive Order 11246), women (Executive
Order 11375), persons with disabilities (29 USC 706 and Executive Order 11758), and certain veterans (38 USC
