The bidding process is aimed at increasing the competitiveness of the bids, avoiding preferential treatments, and enabling the company to get the best offer.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens when the low bid is too low?

Because at this point the bids are public so the bidder may know what the other bids are, and will be able to manipulate her bid to ensure that she is still the low bidder. Not only would this be unfair to the other bidders, but local governments have no authority to allow a bidder to change her bid after a bid opening. So, what should you do?

Whats the lowest bid for a construction project?

You’ve just received bids on a construction project estimated (by your engineer) to cost about $2 million. The lowest bid is for $1.5 million, and the next highest bid is $1.9 million, with the other bids ranging from $2.1 million to $2.3 million.

How do courts treat unbalanced bids in public contracts?

The bidders were asked to provide fixed unit prices for various line items to perform the base and option portions of the project. The following two bids were submitted: As required by the IFB, the FHWA evaluated the bids by adding together the base and option prices, resulting in an award to Elte.
