The subject line of a contract opportunity should be mentioned on your submission form and should be identical to the posting in order to be considered
Keep an eye on the closing date! If a contract opportunity mentions e.g. ‘January 31, 2022 prior 16:00PM’ as a closing date, then all bids should be entered before that date and time. Bids entered after the mentioned closing date will not be considered.
Place of contract performance
A contract opportunity always mentions the place of contact performance. In other words: where should the contractual works be performed performed or where a company bidding on a solicitation should be based.
