C-05. Trade Names.
a. No Restriction of Competition. When reference is made in the Contract Documents to trade names, brand names, or to the names of manufacturers, such references are made solely to indicate that products of that description may be furnished and are not intended to restrict competitive bidding. If it is desired to use products of trade or brand names or of manufacturers’ names which are different from those mentioned in the bidding documents, application for the approval of the use of such products must reach the hands of the Design Professional and the Contracting Officer at least ten (10) calendar days prior to the date set for the opening of bids. The latter provision is a restriction that applies only to the party making a submittal. Therefore, the aforesaid restriction does not inhibit the Owner from adding trade names, brand names or names of manufacturers by addendum.
b. Burden of Proof. The burden of proving acceptability of a proposed product must be accompanied by technical data that the party requesting approval desires to submit in support of his application. The Design Professional will give consideration to reports from reputable independent testing laboratories, verified experience records showing the reputation of the proposed product with previous users, evidence of reputation of the manufacturer for prompt delivery, evidence of reputation of the manufacturer for efficiency in servicing its products, or any other written information that is helpful in the circumstances. The application to the Design Professional for approval of a proposed product must be accompanied by a schedule setting forth in which respects the materials or equipment submitted for consideration differ from the materials or equipment designated in the bidding documents. The degree of proof required for approval of a proposed product as acceptable for use in place of a named product or named products is that amount of proof necessary to convince a reasonable person beyond all doubt. To be approved, a proposed product must also meet or exceed all express requirements of the Contract Documents.
c. Issuance of Addenda. If the submittal is approved by the Design Professional, an addendum will be issued to all prospective bidders. Issuance of an addendum is a representation to all bidders that the Design Professional in the exercise of his professional discretion established that the product submitted for approval is acceptable and meets or exceeds all express requirements. In the event a submittal shall have been rejected by the Design Professional and there shall have been a request for a conference as provided in this article pursuant to which conference the said submittal shall have been found to comply with the requirements of this article, a separate addendum covering the said submittal will be issued prior to the opening of bids. In order for the Design Professional to prepare an addendum intelligently, an application for approval of a product must be accompanied by a copy of the published recommendations of the manufacturer for the installation of the product together with a complete schedule of changes in the drawings and specifications, if any, which must be made in other work in order to permit the use and installation of the proposed product in accordance with the recommendations of the manufacturer of the product. Unless requests for approvals of other products have been received and approvals have been published by addendum in accordance with the above procedure, the successful bidder may furnish no products of any trade names, brand names, or manufacturers’ names except those designated in the Contract Documents.
d. Conference with the Owner. Any party who alleges that rejection of a submittal is the result of bias, prejudice, caprice, or error on the part of the Design Professional may request a conference with a representative of the Owner, PROVIDED: That the request for said conference, submitted in writing, shall have reached the Owner at least five days prior to the date set for the opening of bids, time being of the essence.
