furnish to the Owner all such information and data
for this purpose as the Owner may request. The
Owner reserves the right to reject any bid if the
evidence submitted by, or investigation of, such
Bidder fails to satisfy the Owner that such Bidder
is properly qualified to carry out the obligations of
the Agreement and to complete the work contemplated
therein.
Each Bidder is responsible for inspecting the Project
site(s) and for reading and being thoroughly
familiar with the Contract Documents and Specifi
