  6. Review the Proposal Price Schedule report for the following issues:
    1. Items that are repeated: This is caused by descriptions that are slightly different or the units of measure are different. Go back to the projects or categories and fix the descriptions or units, or a combination of both.
    2. Prices to four or five decimal places: This is caused by having different prices for the same item in different places in the proposal. To fix these errors, change the prices of the item(s) by following the Proposal Item Pricing instructions.
    3. Standard lump sum items: Ensure the supplemental descriptions are accurate.
    4. Prorated lump sum items: Ensure that the individual portions of a prorated lump sum items add up to exactly 1.0.
    5. Items used multiple times: Ensure that the items are numbered correctly and formatted following the the Using a Single Bid Item Multiple Times guidance found in Introduction to an Estimate.
    6. Non-standard SPV bid items: Ensure the supplemental descriptions are accurate and that the items have the correct number based on their units of measure.
