I hope someone can explain this question.
A school district is required to take the lowest bid for the project. I can’t find where shows the alternate bid is deduct alternate. I attached the bid form too. Can anyone tell me how to find where shows the York chiller is deduct alternate please?
Which contractor should be awarded the contract if the owner decides to take the York chiller alternate?
Correct. Contractor 3 provided a base bid of $133,888, and a deduct alternate of $7,888 for the York chiller. Therefore, if taking the York chiller alternate, their total bid is $126,000, which is the lowest bid presented.
Incorrect. Contractor 1 has a base bid of $132,000, with a reduction of $5,000 if taking the York Chiller alternate. This makes the total bid price with alternate $127,000, which is not the lowest bid.
Incorrect. Contractor 5 has the highest bid and should not be awarded the project.
Incorrect. Contractor 4 did not provide an alternate price for the chiller, therefore their base bid of $139,487 is not the lowest bid.
