Chapter 22 - IT Competitive Sealed Bidding / Invitation for Bid

22.5 Cancelling an IFB

22.5.0 Cancelling an IFB

An IFB may be canceled or rejected at any time prior to contract award. An agency may cancel any IFB before or after the due date of the bid responses, and may cancel before or after receiving bids. Nothing can compel the award of a contract. The reason for cancellation of the IFB must be documented and made a part of the procurement file. A public body may not cancel or reject an IFB, a request for proposal, any other IFB, bid or proposal to avoid awarding a contract to a particular responsive and responsible bidder or offeror. (§ 2.2- 4319 of the Code of Virginia)
