The department of administrative services shall promptly notify each successful bidder of the acceptance of the bidder's proposal for state printing. If such bidder fails to execute the contract because of death or other cause, or if the bidder fails to execute the work required by the contract in a proper manner and with reasonable promptness, or the contract is abandoned, or its execution is temporarily suspended, the department may enter into a contract with another person for the prompt execution of the work for the lowest price which may be obtained. Before any work is relet in consequence of the misconduct or default of the contractor, the department shall give the contractor written notice thereof. The department of administrative services may set a daily penalty charge for late orders, provided the penalty schedule and amount are stated in the invitation to bid for the printing.
