A proposal may also be withdrawn in person by a Proposer or its authorized representative, provided its identity is made known and it signs a receipt for the proposal, but only if the withdrawal is made prior to the exact hour and date set for proposal receipt. A proposal may only be modified by the submission of a new sealed proposal or submission of a sealed modification which complies with the requirements of this RFP.
INCA reserves the right to waive formalities and reject any and all proposals.
Although this request provides for a general format, it is not intended to limit a respondent's imagination and creativity in preparing a proposal the respondent feels will best serve the needs of INCA.

After an offer has been made the Selection Committee will limit any discussions to only Proposers whose proposals the Selection Committee has determined to be reasonably susceptible of being selected for award.
