Combination Bids

It is also ICON’s intent to allow for the bidding of Combination Bids. We believe that this practice will allow for additional competition in the market, sustain the viability of local general contractors, allow the inclusion of smaller subcontractors who might otherwise be ineligible, and provide the best opportunities for the success of CMSD’s Community Inclusion and Graduate Workforce programs. Prequalified subcontractors will be provided the opportunity to provide bids on any combination of the identified bid packages to be evaluated against individual bids received and other combination bids offered. Special scrutiny will be given in these cases to the quality and viability of second and third tier subcontractors in evaluating these bids prior to making recommendation for award.
