Issues Concern: Omission of the Name of One of the Joint Venture Partners in the Financial Bid Form
Whether the bid of a proposed Joint Venture (JV) can be declared “failed” if one of the names of the JV partners was not included in the first part of the Financial Bid Form, but was signed by all the representatives of the JV partners
[T]he signature of the JV partners or their duly authorized representatives constitutes their assent to be bound as such JV partners. The fact that all the JV partners signed the Financial Bid Form is a clear proof that the JV partners are tendering their offer with full intention to be bound and take part in the procurement at hand.
