In the Bidding phase, construction documents are available for review by those wishing to bid on the project.
Contractors are encouraged to ask questions during this period; answers and clarifications are made by Addendum. A Prebid meeting is held for most of the projects, and all those wishing to bid on the project are expected to attend. Bidders will be responsible for all of the information given at the meeting.
