Plan Sheet / Specification Reference=Budget versus scope of work.

Question=When this job bid last June, there were two bidders at
approximately $1,500,000 and $1,650,000 and the budget was $1,150,000.  As
we see it, you have reduced the scope in value about $100,000 and raised the
budget by $60,000.  There are absolutely no components of cost that are
lower in March 2005 than they were in June 2004.  Therefore, it would appear
that there will remain a shortfall of at least $200,000 to $300,000 between
a projected low bid and the budget.  What is the reasoning behind Caltrans'
strategy on this project?
