Title 48Chapter 1Subchapter CPart 14Subpart 14.4 → §14.404-4


Title 48: Federal Acquisition Regulations System
PART 14—SEALED BIDDING
Subpart 14.4—Opening of Bids and Award of Contract


14.404-4   Restrictions on disclosure of descriptive literature.

When a bid is accompanied by descriptive literature (as defined in 2.101), and the bidder imposes a restriction that prevents the public disclosure of such literature, the restriction may render the bid nonresponsive. The restriction renders the bid nonresponsive if it prohibits the disclosure of sufficient information to permit competing bidders to know the essential nature and type of the products offered or those elements of the bid that relate to quantity, price, and delivery terms. The provisions of this paragraph do not apply to unsolicited descriptive literature submitted by a bidder if such literature does not qualify the bid (see 14.202-5(e)).
