DG-16: Under the applicable supplier contracts, I understand that we are required to provide performance assurance collateral for 10% of the contract value if the contract value exceeds $500,000. Can we post cash (as opposed to a letter of credit) for this performance assurance collateral?

Yes, successful Bidders may either post cash or a letter of credit Letter under each of the applicable supplier contracts. If you post cash, there may be fees associated with this option as explained in the applicable supplier contracts.
