Responders should be aware of the State of Minnesota’s standard contract terms and conditions in preparing their response. Much of the language reflected in the contract is required by statute. If responders take exception to any of the terms, conditions or language in the contract, responders must indicate those exceptions in their response to the RFP; certain exceptions may result in the responder’s proposal being disqualified from further review and evaluation. Only those exceptions indicated in the response to the RFP will be available for discussion or negotiation.
