The contractor is expected to develop its own internal policies and procedures in coordination with St. Bernard Parish Government and LLT in order to complete the following sequence of tasks:

1. Advertising and promoting the availability of LLT properties as prescribed by St. Bernard Parish Government and LLT;

2. Conducting an auction for individual LLT properties and LLT property packages as prescribed by St. Bernard Parish Government and LLT;

4. Maintaining all LLT property sale records on behalf of St. Bernard Parish Government.

The described program is very unique. Consequently, St. Bernard Parish Government welcomes innovative ideas regarding how the project may best be executed. However, please be advised that the subject properties are owned by LLT and must be sold in a manner consistent with Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) guidelines. Attention of bidders is particularly called to the requirements as to conditions of employment to be observed under the contract, Section 3, Segregated Facility, Section 109, Title VI and EO 11246.
