The County of Lee, Virginia is now accepting sealed bids for four (4) new police vehicles. The County will accept bids for both SUV and standard cruiser models and may select one body style or multiple body styles for a total of four vehicles.  Attached is a set of basic specifications for both SUV and standard cruisers which are intended to establish the minimum level of requirements for the vehicles we will purchase.  The specifications on all vehicles must equal or exceed the basic specifications for that model.  Vendors are encouraged to provide a bid price for vehicles meeting the minimum specifications with additional pricing for vehicles that are “road-ready” with emergency lighting packages.  A detailed cost for any options or alternates, if proposed, should also be included.  The County of Lee will make a final selection based on the bid(s) which meets the specifications and our needs, price and other factors considered.  Price will not be the sole determining factor in selecting the successful bid.  The County of Lee also reserves the right to reject any or all bids if deemed to be in the best interest of the County.

Each bid should include a complete set of specifications for the units on which your bid is based, the expected delivery date, and cost of each unit.  Any exceptions to the bid specifications should be noted.  Bidders are encouraged to include a financing proposal based on a 25% down payment on delivery and three (3) equal annual payments thereafter.  Bidders are advised that the County will also obtain financing bids from other sources.
