ICT Equipment offered shall be reviewed based on completeness and compliance of the quotation with the minimum specifications described above and any other annexes providing details of ADPC requirements.

The unit price shall prevail and the total price shall be corrected. If the Vendor does not accept the final price based on ADPC’s re-computation and correction of errors, its quotation will be rejected.
At any time during the validity of the quotation, no price variation due to escalation, inflation, fluctuation in exchange rates, or any other market factors shall be accepted by ADPC after it has received the quotation. At the time of award of Contract, ADPC reserves the right to vary (increase or decrease) the quantity of services and/or equipment, by up to a maximum twenty-five per cent (25%) of the total offer, without any change in the unit price or other terms and conditions.
