The project is funded fully or partially with Federal funds provided through Mississippi Development Authority, utilizing Supplemental Community Development Block Grant Funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development; the successful bidder must comply with all ap- plicable federal, state and local requirements contained in the contract documents, including but not limited to Section 3, Davis-Bacon Federal Wage Regulations, E-Verify, etc., as identified in the bid proposal packet as “HUD Contract Provisions for Construction Contracts”. All Women and Minority and Section 3 Contractors are encouraged to apply.

Section 3 Requirements: This project is covered by the requirements of Section 3 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968 (12 U.S. C. § 1701u) (Section 3”). Section 3 requires that when employment or contracting opportunities are generated by HUD-funded projects, preference is given to low to very low-income persons and businesses residing in the community where the project is located. Section 3 businesses are encouraged to submit a bid as any responsive, responsible bidder that qualifies as a Section 3 Business Concern will be given a preference during evaluation. A bidder selected for this Project will be responsible for ensuring compliance with all Section 3 requirements including, but not limited to, the hiring and contracting decisions made on the Project.

All bidders are required to demonstrate commitment to the achievement of the City of Pascagoula’s Section 3 goals in one of the following two ways:

(1) A bidder must certify as a Section 3 business concern: or
(2) A bidder must provide a Section 3 plan detailing how the bidder will meet the required Sec- tion 3 subcontracting goal of providing subcontracting opportunities to Section 3 business con- cerns in an amount not less than 10% of the total contract amount. In the subcontracting plan, the bidder should include the necessary number of Section 3 business subcontractors to meet or exceed the goal for this contract. The plan should also clearly state the total dollar value that will be self-performed and the total dollar value which will be subcontracted to Section 3 Business Concerns; providing for each listed Section 3 Business Concern a fully completed Section 3 Business Certification form including the company name, address, contact person, telephone number, and e-mail address; the amount to be performed/subcontracted; the scope of work to be performed; and the anticipated timeframe for performance of the work.

If a bid is submitted without satisfying one of the two requirements set forth above, then that bid will be deemed non-responsive and rejected; provided, however, that in the event the Contractor, itself, is a Section 3 Business Concern and provides the requisite documentation in support thereof, such bidder will be encouraged, but not required to extend subcontracting opportunities to Section 3 Business Concerns as contemplated by this provision.
