The responses to bidder's inquiries, unless incorporated into a formal addendem to the contract, are not a part of the contract and are provided for the bidder's convenience only. In some instances, the question and answer may represent a summary of the matters discussed rather than a word-for-word recitation. The availability or use of information provided in the responses to bidder's inquiries is not to be construed in any way as a waiver of the provisions of Section 2-1.03 of the Standard Specifications or any other provision of the contract, the plans, Standard Specifications or Special Provisions, nor to excuse the contractor from full compliance with those contract requirements. Bidders are cautioned that subsequent responses or contract addenda may affect or vary a response previously given.
Q1) We were only able to view (1) location. Existing gate was closed shutting us off to access other locations. Please consider postponing the bid opening for (1) week giving us time to coordinate with maintenance to get access.
A1) Please contact Luis Elias at the Bishop Construction Office, (760) 872-5251, to arrange for access past the locked gate prior to Bid Opening. The Bid Opening Date will remain as is currently established, April 22, 2008.
