In June, we published an article addressing non-compliance and substantial compliance of tender bids. In that article, we discussed the need for bids to be compliant to give rise to Contract A—the bid contract. The requisite compliance, while assessed objectively, can vary depending on the express terms and conditions contained in the tender documents.
This article will examine situations when seeking clarification from a bidder post-closing may be permitted and when such conduct may constitute bid repair.
