The Board of Supervisors of Tazewell County, Virginia 24651 is accepting sealed bids from qualified vendors to furnish and deliver vehicle/diesel fuel for use in County owned vehicles for the period beginning July 1, 2019 and ending June 30, 2020. Bids must include (1) the bidder’s total price as of June 1, 2019, (2) the bidder’s terminal price which was included in the total bid price, and (3) the bidder’s margin above terminal prices included in the total price submitted. Bidders shall be evaluated based on the lowest total price.

The contract awarded shall allow the price to increase or decrease during the term of the contract. The price at the time fuel is ordered shall be computed by adding the bidder’s terminal prices at the time of the order and the fixed margin stated in the bid.

Delivery of fuels will be required at various locations throughout the County.
