Where deemed appropriate by the City, bidders, proponents, and/or suppliers may be pre-qualified for particular types of supplies, services, and construction to determine the responsibility of such bidder, proponent, or supplier.
(1) Standard of responsibility. Factors to be considered in determining whether the standard of responsibility has been met by a bidder, proponent, or supplier include:
(a) availability of the appropriate financial, material, equipment, facility, and personnel resources and expertise, or the ability to obtain them, necessary to indicate the capability of the bidder, proponent, or supplier to meet all contractual requirements;
(b) a satisfactory record of performance;
(c) a satisfactory record of integrity and reliability;
(d) legal qualifications to contract with Layton City; and
(e) whether all necessary information has been supplied in connection with the inquiry concerning responsibility.
(2) Information pertaining to responsibility. The bidder, proponent, or supplier shall supply information requested by the City concerning the responsibility of such bidder, proponent, or supplier. If such information is not supplied, City shall base the determination of responsibility upon any available information or may find the bidder, proponent, or supplier nonresponsible if such failure, as determined by City, is unreasonable.
