Lawyer signing legal documents

Client Query 032:- Salamz, How are you? Wanted some clarification from you on the status of bids. I will state a situation in front of you so that you can guide me accordingly. In single Tender, there were three firms participated in the bid i.e. M/s A, M/s B and M/s C. After opening of the bids, revealed that, M/s C is lowest bidder. During further proceeding in this case, M/s C, which is already declared lowest, has offered 20% more concession in the rates/ value of bid. Could you please guide according to Rule 40 of PPRA Rules? Also if you could clarify Limitations on Negotiation as this office was not requested/ negotiated with lowest bidder at any stage of the tendering process?
