We try very hard to have drawings and specifications be in complete agreement with each other but ultimately are never perfect in this effort. In the dwgs-vs-spex case study indicated in this article, we would expect for the General Contractor to identify this issue prior to bidding and make sure it got addressed either before bid date or before the subcontractor's contract is signed.

Mr. Massingill's comment regarding pre-bid clarification is well taken. While the Armed Services Board found these documents to be unambiguous, the Board said that had there been an ambiguity it would have been considered patent, triggering the bidder's obligation to seek clarification.
