• Prices must be written in words and numbers (like writing a check). Bids that do not have the prices written in words can be rejected.
• The specifications and all attachments must be attached. If you do not attach the specifications to the bid or proposal, it can be rejected.
• DBE participation percentage must be included on the proper form. Bids that do not include the form, do not show the percentage and description of work, or do not provide an explanation of efforts to obtain DBE partners when there is no participation can be rejected.
• DBE participants must always be subcontractors. The prime contractor does not count toward DBE participation, even if the prime contractor is DBE certified.
The Board may reject any and all bids if they are deemed not in the best interest of the Sewerage and Water Board.
