• No price escalation will be authorized in excess of the amount of the increase referred to in the supplier's notice. • The County may only grant a price increase if the evidence presented is deemed reliable. Should the County allow a price increase, the approved price change shall be honored for all orders received by the vendor or contractor after the effective date of such price change. Approved price changes are not applicable to orders already issued and in process at time of price change. 2) Price Reduction: Vendor shall notify the County at the time when the Vendor's costs for items and/or supplies reduce due to
stabilization in the market at which time prices for items on this contract shall be reduced accordingly. Failure by the Vendor to notify the County of a decrease in costs for items and/or supplies for which the Vendor was granted a price adjustment, may result in immediate termination of this contract and the County shall not be obligated to pay the Vendor the difference between the contract price and the price adjustment.
3) Timeframe for Adjusted Price Increases: Price increases are only valid for the quarter in which they are requested and approved.
Prices shall return to the original contract price at the beginning of the following quarter unless a Vendor notifies the County in writing within ten (10) days of expiration of the quarter in which the price increase is in effect, that it desires to have the price increase continue or that the Vendor is requesting a different price increase for the following quarter.

The County Purchasing Department shall have sole discretion whether to grant the price increase extension.

However, the
County may at its own discretion, conduct temporary price adjustment reviews at any time. The County Purchasing Agent and/or the County Auditor reserve the right to audit and/or examine any pertinent books, documents, papers, records or invoices relating directly to the contract transaction in question after reasonable notice and during normal business hours. 5) Dollar Limit to Price Changes: The total increase in contract price shall not exceed twenty-five percent (25%) of the original
