Bidding & Negotiation
Today’s bidding market is unlike any other time in recent history. With the slowdown in the economy, many smaller companies are pursuing work that they may be unable or unqualified to perform. This trend is a delicate one to combat with publicly funded projects where the Owner is often required to award the contract to the lowest responsible bidder. Clements & Associates takes every opportunity during the bidding process and the phases leading up to it, to set forth the level of quality that will be expected for the duration of the construction. If we or the Owner is unfamiliar with the work of the apparent low bidder for a project, Clements & Associates will require references for projects of similar size and scope before making a recommendation to the Owner to award a contract.
