This contact sheet will be a live document that will be updated frequently to let all local companies know the subcontractors that may be bidding for the phases and then they can contact the subcontractors directly to let them know that they are interested in bidding a part of the scope of work. The document can also provide bidding subcontractors a list of companies interested in bidding on specific projects within the phases.
