Good Faith Effort Requirements in a Contractor's Bid - Many federal and state public construction contracts require that a "good faith effort" be made by the bidding prime contractor to allow disadvantaged business enterprises, also called DBE companies, a fair opportunity to submit a bid proposal as a supplier or sub-contractor. The agency requesting the bid proposals sets goals for the participation of DBE companies, and the percentages vary by agency, sometimes as high as requiring 20% DBE participation.

Tips for Preparing Construction Bids

  1. Find the right form. Choose the document sample that suits your state. US Legal Forms provides more than 85 thousand state-specific samples that you can download and submit. Additionally, the platform gives you an useful information about type of property contract and agreement to help you choose the appropriate sample.
  2. Point out parties and property. Begin entering the names of both parties. You don't have to repeat these names further in the file. It is enough to define them once and replace them with the terms Buyer and Seller. Identify the address and legal information of the property in your Construction Bids.
  3. Establish the terms and deadlines. The price doesn't appear out of the blue. Determine how much your estate may be worth and decide how much you want to get for it. Also, browse through the amount of earnest money and the time frame when you want to receive the rest. It is essential to set down-to-earth due dates in the sales contract.
  4. Sign to enforce Construction Bids. You and another party need to sign the contract to make it legitimate. Do it by face-to-face meeting or use a legally-binding eSignature. But to close the sale as a whole, you should search for other real estate forms. Prevent wasting time on browsing and choose a ready-made bundle of documents with US Legal Forms.
