Bid It As You See It
All too often, the response of government technical representatives to a question raised by a bidder is “bid it as you see it.”. This common response is not at all helpful and causes the bidder to guess about the government’s intentions. If you are faced with this kind of response, you should either protest the refusal of the government to clarify the solicitation prior to bid opening or notify the government of how you “see” the specification and how you will bid it. You should request that the government notify you before bid opening if your understanding of the plans and specifications is incorrect.
