Client Query 175:- Hi, Hope all is well at your end. Wanted to discuss a scenario with you. Actually there was an organisation which was unable to open the technical bids, on published date, due to unavailability of some members of purchase committee. Can we open technical bids after published date with mutual consent of participated bidders?
