Marquette County Designation of Confidential, Trade Secret and Proprietary Information 

Material submitted in response to Marquette Counties Request for Proposal includes information that we have determined as proprietary, confidential and/or information which qualifies as a trade secret, as provided in Wis. Sat. Section 19.36(5), or is otherwise material that can be kept confidential under the Wisconsin Public Records Law. As such, the proposer asks that certain pages, as indicated below, of this proposal be treated as confidential material and not be released to the public. I am providing the following information with the understanding that it is being submitted to the County under a pledge of confidential* and request that the following pages not be released:

 *NOTE: Proposers are cautioned that the ENTIRE PROPOSAL MAY NOT FALL WITHIN THE CONFINES OF THE PLEDGE OF CONFIDENTALITY. THE ABOVE DESIGNATION(S) OF CONFIDENTIALITY IN NO WAY GUARENTEES THAT DESIGNATED INFORMATION WILL BE KEPT CONFIDENTIAL. UNDER THE PROVISION OF THE PUBLIC RECORDS LAW, PROPOSER IS NOT ENTITLED TO NOTIFICAITON PRIOR TO RELEASE OF INFORMATIONAND IS NOT ENTITLED TO GO TO COURT TO BLOCK DISCLOSURE OF ANY PORTION OF THE PROPOSAL.

IF THE COUNTY AGREES WITH PROPOSERS DESIGNATION OF TRADE SECRET OR CONFIDENTIALITY AND THE DESIGNATION IS CHALLENGED, THE UNDERSIGNED HEREBY AGREES TO PROVIDE LEGAL COUNSEL OR OTHER NECSSARY ASSITANCE TO DEFEND THE DESIGNAITON OF TRADE SECRET OR CONFIDENTIALITY.

NOTE: The County custodian of these public records has the obligation to the Public Records Law, to determine whether the above information can be kept confidential.

PROPRIETARY INFORMATION: A proposer responding to this proposal should not include any proprietary information or protected trade secret(s) as part of its proposal unless the proposer 1) designates the specific information that it maintains is proprietary or trade secret and the reason(s) for such designation in a separate document, and 2) identifies the specific information when it occurs within the proposal.

The County’s preference is for the proposer to segregate all information designated as confidential onto one section of the Request for Proposal and/or a separate document for easier removal to maintain its confidential status. The information is located within the response, i.e. under separate cover, in confidential Section No.___, etc. Data contained in the proposal and all documentation become property of the County.

Generally, proposals are available for public review after the County has awarded a contract.
