General Terms and Conditions

These GENERAL CONDITIONS are applicable to all bids and contracts with the Kentucky Community & Technical College System (KCTCS), Department of Purchasing.

We encourage you/your firm to study these conditions and retain copies for reference, as they are an integral part of all contracts awarded by the KCTCS Purchasing Department.

The following GENERAL CONDITIONS are applicable to each Invitation to Bid issued by KCTCS and to each purchase made by any authorized method of acquisition. Each firm submitting a bid or selling to KCTCS shall be deemed to have assented to these conditions by the act of bidding and/or acceptance of a purchase request.

These GENERAL CONDITIONS will not be repeated in each Invitation to Bid although they shall be an integral part of each invitation and resulting contract. These General Conditions will be sent to any vendor upon request.

Additional conditions may be incorporated in specific Invitations to Bid, Request for Proposals, and contracts, and are generally termed "Special Conditions." Such special conditions will in no way operate to alter or nullify the general conditions and each bidder shall be responsible for compliance with both the general and special conditions. However, in cases of irreconcilable conflict, the special conditions will govern.
