Hello, I work at the bid department, and in our cover letters, we always use the same letter template, which was written by a French speaking person. These letters are supposed to be formal, as they are presented with the bid package, but I feel that the underlined wording could be better... I am also a French speaking person and I am not sure how to improve it :S We have submitted our best pricing proposal in reference to the residence furniture. We have not submitted a proposal for some of the items. You will find included our detailed specifications per item to support our proposal. Prices shown are valid for a period of 60 days. I thought of : We have submitted our best pricing proposal in reference to the residence furniture, however we did not bid on certain items. But does the idiom we did not bid sound too informal? If anyone has a better idea, even on the rest of the contents, ideas a are more than welcome!
