Overview: Interstate Business Solutions did not fully complete and submit several of the documents in the bid that required a public notary's signature and seal by the bid's expiration date. However, this incident was regarded as a minor irregularity according to AG's Opinion 97-00281 so as not to defeat the responsiveness of the lowest bidder. The forms where Interstate & Associates did not initially submit documentation with a public notary's signature and official seal include the State of Alabama Disclosure Statement and E-Verify Forms. The vendor's W-9 provided in the bid submission did not provide the Employer Identification Number (EIN). After the bid opening, it was requested of the vendor to submit these aforementioned forms completely, the vendor was responsive in providing the forms as seen attached.
