The bid documents posted for each opportunity provide the information you need to submit a valid response for evaluation, as each bid document is unique to each opportunity.

Some bid documents will explain how you can receive updates and addendums to bid documents. Please read these instructions carefully.
When preparing your bid response, be sure to follow the format requested in the bid documents. This will help ensure your submission is valid.
