A mistake that prevented a company from winning a government contract emphasizes the importance of paying attention to detail when submitting a bid, this blog post notes. The contractor said it would take 350 days to complete the work. However, an extension in the bid-opening date meant that the contractor wouldn't be able to meet the deadline for the project if work lasted that many days. Despite the contractor's arguments to the contrary, the Government Accountability Office determined that the bid had to be rejected as a result of the mistake.
