All bidders must be an authorized Kemp dealer of the items listed or be an authorized dealer of an approved equal.

In accordance with the California Public Contract Code Section 3400, reference to any equipment, material, article or patented process, by trade name, make, or catalog number, shall not be construed as limiting competition.
