    Documents required to be submitted in response to an invitation to bid (ITB). These include the prescribed bid form, drawings, specifications, time lines, charts, price breakdowns, etc. Bids not accompanied by all the required documents are considered incomplete bids, and are usually automatically rejected.

    cool thanks a lot. so your basically saying that any jobs that I wanna bid on that don't have a bid packet, will probably just reject my bid and not really consider it?

    No, cuz some companies don't do it that way, call and see if they are accepting bids, and then send one in and an ealry warning, be carefull on apartments becasue some of them have like 200 managers and one might say one thing and another guy will say something diffret. Or one guy is cool and the other, you just wanna punch the guy in the face.
