Pre-bid conferences are held on most solicitations to familiarize the vendor with the requirements presented by the City’s specifications. Addenda may be issued to the bid based on the discussions that take place during these meetings. Attendance at some pre-bid meetings may be mandatory and will preclude your firm from bidding if not attended.
Attention to Specifications
Pay attention to the specification! It is advisable for vendors to attend the pre-bid meetings whether mandated or not, as this allows you the opportunity to question the requirements and hear, firsthand, other vendors’ questions and the answers to those questions.
