    The Owner reserves the right to reject any proposal, or all proposals, or to accept any proposal or proposals, or make such combination of proposals as may seem desirable, and to waive any and all informalities in bidding.  Any proposal may be withdrawn prior to the above scheduled time for the opening of proposals or authorized postponement thereof.  Any proposal received after the time and date specified may be rejected.  No proposals may be withdrawn after the scheduled closing time for receipt of bids for at least sixty (60) days.

    Each Bidder is responsible for inspecting the Project site and for reading and being thoroughly familiar with the Contract Documents and Specifications.  The failure or omission of any bidder to do any of the foregoing shall in no way relieve any Bidder from any obligation with respect to its Bid.
    The Owner is exempt from all federal, state, and local taxes, and will not be responsible for any taxes levied on the Bidders as a result of any contract award.
