Owner reserves the right to reject any and all Bids.  Award, if made, shall be to the lowest responsible Bidder whose Bid is responsive to the invitation and is most advantageous to the Owner, in its sole and exclusive discretion, price and other factors considered.  The Owner may reject a Bid as nonresponsive if the prices bid are materially unbalanced between the line items or subline items.  A Bid is materially unbalanced when it is based on prices significantly less than cost for some work and prices which are significantly overstated in relation to cost for other work, and if there is a reasonable doubt that the bid will result in the lowest overall cost to the Owner even though it may be the low evaluated bid, or if it is so unbalanced as to be tantamount to allowing an advance payment.  The Owner also reserves the right to waive all information not involving price, time or changes in the Goods and Special Services, and to negotiate contract terms with Successful Bidder.
