- ACME Construction Co., a general contractor, requests bids from subcontractors for work to be done on a hospital building that ACME plans to submit a bid to build. Bob’s Electrical Company submits the lowest bid for the electrical work, and ACME incorporates Bob’s low bid in its own bid for the general contract. What is the most likely outcome if Bob’s later decides to withdraw its bid after ACME has incorporated Bob’s bid into the general contract, and ACME sues? Who should win and why?
