prequalification deadline for this Project. Answers to questions contained in the attached questionnaire am required. The CITY will use these documents as the basis of rat- ing Contmctom with respect to whether each Contractor is quali- fied to bid on the Project, and reserves the right to check other sources available. The CITY's decision will be based on objective evaluation criteria. The CITY reserves the right to adjust, increase, limit, suspend or rescind the prequalification rating based on subsequently learned information. Contractors whose rating changes sufficiently to dis- qualify them will be notified, and given an opportunity for a hear- ing consistent with the hearing procedures described below for appealing a prequalification rating. While it is the intent of the prequalification questionnaire and documents required therewith to assist the CITY in determining bidder responsibility prior to bid and to aid the CITY in select- ing the lowest responsible bidder, neither the fact of prequalifica- tion, nor any prequalification rating, will preclude the CITY from a post-bid consideration and determination of whether a bidder has the quality, fitness, capacity and experience to satisfactorily perform the proposed work, and has demonstrated the requisite trustworthiness. The prequalification packages should be submitted under seal to the Office of the City Clerk, City of Beverly Hills, 455 North Rexford Drive, Room 290, Beverly Hills, CA 90210.

If any information provided by a Contractor becomes inaccurate, the Contractor must immediately notify the CITY and provide updated accurate information in writing, under penalty of perjury. The CITY reserves the right to waive minor irregularities and omissions in the information contained in the prequalification application submitted, and to make all final determinations. The CITY may also determine at any time that the prequalification pro- cess will be suspended for the Project and the Project will be bid without prequalification.
