Court Case on Bidder Responsibility

Questions:  The following are some of the bidder responsibility related questions that an appeals court dealt with in a bid protest from a Spokane Housing Authority window replacement project:
  • Is it important that a contractor have a certain number of years experience performing similar work?
  • What if the contractor's employees have the experience but not with the company?  
  • What if the main subcontractor who will be performing the work has the requisite experience?  
  • Does an award constitute a contract?  
More Information:  Seattle construction attorney, John Ahlers, has written a good summary of this case in his Construction Law Blog.  Click here to read more about the case that was decided by the Court of Appeals in December 2012.
