Use the following documents in bid proposals.
The documents below are
in Microsoft Word format
unless listed otherwise.
These guidelines and templates (shells) are offered on the
Internet as an aid to preparing and organizing the formal bid documents hereinafter
referred to as the Proposal.
The intent of these guidelines is to standardize the content, color, order, and appearance
of a Bureau of Aeronautics' bid proposal. The purposes of standardizing the Proposal are
to reduce bidder confusion and errors; to reduce the time and cost to prepare the
Proposal; and to reduce consultant errors and omissions. These instructions are not
intended to provide technical or design information needed to develop and produce specific
file of each Proposal form is set up on the Internet. We believe that utilization of the template hereinafter called
"shells" is an extremely efficient technique for producing clear,
concise, complete, and correct bid proposals. The shells were prepared using
Microsoft Word with form fields. To enter information in the
takes you ahead and shift+F11 takes you back. The specifier shall use the
shells as a basis for the Proposal. Each shell includes standard clauses and
data applicable to each element of the Proposal. The specifier downloads the
shells and completes the fields as prompted. Hopefully the
printed hard copy’s appearance mirrors a standard Bureau
bidding document. If not, rearrange as necessary. Appearance is important
as we want the bidders to recognize each document as a Bureau standard.
Neither the Bureau or the bidders want altered or missing clauses.
