Contract Documents and Specifications.
Each proposal shall be accompanied by a certified
check or acceptable bidder’s bond made payable to

(5%) of the total amount of the highest aggregate
proposal, which check or bond will be held by the
Owner as evidence that the bidder will, if awarded
the contract, enter into the same with the Owner
upon notification from him to do so within ten (10)
days of said notification.

all informalities in bidding. Any proposal may be
withdrawn prior to the above scheduled time for
the opening of proposals or authorized postponement

bid proposal documents section to these specifications.
The Owner may make such investigations as
deemed necessary to determine the ability of the
Bidder to perform the work and the Bidder shall
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
cations. The failure or omission of any Bidder to
do any of the foregoing shall in no way relieve any

of Labor. A copy is included in the specifications.
