Issues Concern: Discrepancy in the Summary of Detailed Cost Estimates
Rules to be observed in case of discrepancy in the Summary of Detailed Cost Estimates
[I]n case of discrepancy in the amount in words and in figures indicated in the Summary of Detailed Cost Estimates, the rule that the bid price in words shall prevail over the bid price in figures should not automatically be applied. As between the amount in words and that in figures indicated in the Summary of Detailed Cost Estimates, that which correspond to the actual sum of prices of component items and is consistent with the bid price indicated in the bid form shall prevail in establishing the correct total calculated bid price so as to reflect the real intention and true statement of the bidder and not to defeat the purpose of bid evaluation.
