The date for the unpriced proposal was originally July 27th per the RFP. The date was unexpectedly changed to June 28th on June 28th. We are still in the process of getting pricing for our bid. Is it possible to extend the deadline for the opportunity? We were not expecting the deadline to change so abruptly.
