The bidder is invited, urged, cautioned to inspect the property prior to submitting a bid. Property will be available for inspection at the places and times specified in the invitation.
The purchaser agrees to pay for property awarded to him/her in accordance with the prices quoted in his/her bid. Subject to any adjustment made pursuant to other provisions of this contract, payment of the full purchase price, after applying the total bid deposit, if any, must be made within time specified in the invitation
and prior to delivery of any of the property. If an adjustment is made requiring additional payment, such payment must be made immediately upon notice of such adjustment.
Cash payments shall be in U.S. Currency. Acceptable forms are cashier's check, credit union cashier's check issued by a Federal or State chartered credit union, traveler's checks, postal or commercial money order, and Paypal. Cashier's Checks and forms of payment other than cash must be made payable to the Bend-La Pine Schools.

Title to property sold will be transferred to the purchaser when full and final payment is made, unless otherwise specified by the District. Receipt of payment of the sale price, including any applicable fees, and delivery of key to the purchaser or their designated representative constitutes delivery and possession for vehicles. The District rejects any liability once a purchaser takes possession of a vehicle.
DELIVERY, LOADING, AND REMOVAL OF PROPERTY.
otherwise provided in the Invitation, the Purchaser shall be entitled to obtain the property upon full payment therefore with delivery being made only from the exact place where the property is located within the installation. Loading will only be performed as set forth in the Invitation
, and unless otherwise provided in the Invitation, loading will not be performed on Saturdays, Sundays, Federal holidays, or any date that the installation where the property is located is closed. Unless otherwise provided in the Invitation, the District will not block, chock, brace, lash, band, or in any other manner secure the cargo on such conveyance(s) furnished by the Purchaser.
Where it is provided in the Invitation that the District will not load or that the Purchaser will load, the Purchaser will make all arrangements and perform all work necessary to effect removal of the property. The Purchaser shall remove the property at his/her expense within the period of time allowed in the Invitation. If the Contracting Officer determines that the failure to remove the property within the period of time originally allowed arose out of causes beyond the control and without the fault or negligence of the Purchaser, such determination shall be reduced to writing, and a reasonable extension of time for removal shall be allowed. Such causes may include, but are not restricted to, acts of God or of the public enemy, acts of the Government in either its sovereign or contractual capacity, fires, floods, epidemics, quarantine restrictions, strikes, freight embargoes, and severe weather. If the Purchaser is permitted to remove the property after the expiration of the time originally allowed for removal or any additional time allowed by the Contracting Officer pursuant to this clause, the District, without limiting any other rights which it may have, may require the Purchaser to pay a reasonable storage charge. The Purchaser shall reimburse the District for any damage to District property caused during the removal operations by the Purchaser or his/her authorized representative.
Items purchased under the Invitation will be released only to the Purchaser or his/her authorized representative. The authorized representative must furnish authorization from the Purchaser to the Custodian of the property location before any delivery of release will be made. When property is described as being boxed, packed, crated, skidded, or in containers, the District does not warrant that the property, as packaged, is suitable for shipment.
Segregation, culling, or selection of property for the purpose of effecting partial or increment removals will not be permitted except as specifically authorized and prescribed by the District.
If, after the award, the Purchaser breaches the contract by failure to make payment within the time allowed by the contract as required by Condition No. 2, or by failure to remove the property as required by Condition No. 4, then the Purchaser shall lose all right, title, and interest which he/she might otherwise have acquired in and to such property as to which a default has occurred. If the property was sold on a "per lot" basis and the Purchaser removes a portion of the lot but fails to remove the balance, no portion of the purchase price will be refunded. If the Purchaser otherwise fails in the performance of his/her obligations, the District may exercise such rights and may pursue such remedies as are provided by law or under the contract.
6. SETOFF OF REFUNDS.
The Bidder or Purchaser agrees that the selling agency may use all or a portion of any bid deposit or refund due him/her to satisfy, in whole or in part, any debts out of prior transactions with the District.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this contract, unless paid within 30 calendar days from the date of first written demand, all amounts that become payable by the Purchaser to the District under this contract shall bear simple interest at the rate which has been established by the Secretary of the Treasury as provided in Section 12 of the Contract Disputes Act of 1978 (Public Law 95-563), from the date of first written demand until paid.
8. ADJUSTMENT FOR VARIATION IN QUANTITY OR WEIGHT.

The purchase price will be adjusted upward or downward in accordance with the unit price and on the basis of the quantity or weight actually delivered. Unless otherwise specifically provided in the Invitation, no adjustment for such variation will be made where property is sold on a "price for the lot" basis.
9. WEIGHING, SWITCHING, AND SPOTTING.
Where weighing is necessary to determine the exact purchase price, the Purchaser shall arrange for and pay all expenses of weighing the property (unless District scales are available on the premises). All switching and spotting charges shall be paid by the Purchaser unless such services are performed with District-owned or District-operated locomotives on District property. When removal is by truck, weighing shall be under the supervision of the District and at its option on: (a) District scales, (b) certified scales, or (c) other scales acceptable by both parties. When removal is by rail, weighing shall be on railroad track scales, or by other means acceptable to the railroad for freight purposes.
RISK OF LOSS.
Unless otherwise provided by the Invitation, the District will be responsible for the care and protection of the property subsequent to it being available for inspection and prior to its removal. Any loss, damage, or destruction occurring during such period will be adjusted by the Contracting Officer to the extent it was not caused directly or indirectly by the Purchaser, its agents, or employees. At the discretion of the Contracting Officer, the adjustment may consist of rescission. With respect to losses only, in the event the property is offered for sale by the "lot," no adjustment will be authorized under this provision unless the District is notified of the loss prior to removal from the installation of any portion of the lot with respect to which the loss is claimed.
LIMITATION ON DISTRICTS LIABILITY
Except for reasonable packing, loading, and transportation costs (such packing, loading, and transportation costs being recoverable only when a return of property at District cost is specifically authorized in writing by the Contracting Officer) the measure of the Districts liability in any case where liability of the District to the Purchaser has been established shall not exceed refund of such portion of the purchase price as the District may have received.
