Contract provision addresses expiration of project bid

A roofing contractor might include the following provision in bids or proposals to avoid being bound to a price or commitment to do a job for longer than desired. This provision should not be used when bidding directly to a public owner, and the instructions to bidders or an applicable statute or regulation requires that bids remain open for a specified period of time, if not withdrawn before public opening.

Expiration of project bid: Contractor's bid expires thirty (30) days after the date stated on the bid unless otherwise agreed if not earlier withdrawn prior to acceptance.
