Bidding On Baltimore City Contracts – Pay Attention to MBE/WBE Details


A last-minute rush can cause a general contractor to make mistakes in its bid submission, which may lead the contracting authority to reject the bid as nonresponsive. Fortunately, for an apparent low bidder, if these errors are minor (meaning their significance as to the bidder's price, quantity, quality, or delivery are trivial), the contracting authority usually has discretion to waive the minor defects if it is in the government's best interest to do so. One area, in particular, where bidders make mistakes is in completing Baltimore

City participation forms for minority and women's business enterprise ("MBE/WBE") subcontracts. Paul S. Sugar and Jackson B. Boyd of Ober|Kaler explain what to look out for.
