Client Query 129:- Hi, Hope everything is well at your end? We had advertised for the construction of animal shed, only one bid was received on closing date. On evaluation of bid we found that the quoted price of the contractor is 50% above our estimated price. What is the percentage of allowable limit above or below the estimate as per PPRA rules? Can we award the award the contract to him as per PPRA rules?
