Answer:- Thank you very much for writing to us. As per your query and PPRA Rules the answer to your query is this that the procuring agencies shall ordinarily be under an obligation to process and evaluate the bids within the stipulated bid validity and award the contract to lowest evaluated bidder within the original or extended period of bid validity period in terms of Rules 26 & 38 of Public Procurement Rules, 2004, respectively. Bid security of non-responsive bidders is also required to be returned as early as possible by the procuring agency. Hope this will help you!
