Discount in Bid Price

Post by Mikel on Thu Aug 04, 2011 12:55 pm

I am partially reproducing hereunder the pro-forma bid form prescribed under the PBD 4th Ed. Infra. Under letter (b) thereof, the total price of bid is exclusive of the discount offered in item/ letter (d) of the same. However, a referral to item/ letter (d) of the bid form would disclose that it(letter d) pertains to the posting of performance security by the bidder, thus, it would seem that the said reference to item/letter (d) is misplaced (irrelevant?). May I respectfully seek clarification on this matter?

Further, if the bidder offers a discount, as provided in the succeeding sentence of letter (b) of the bid form, will the said discount be deducted from the total bid price quoted in the immediately preceding sentence for purposes of determining the bid price offered by the bidder?

Thank you very much.
