Does a bidder who was not selected for a public works project have grounds to sue the Township for not being selected?

September 2020

No. Michigan cases demonstrate that the submission of a bid does not establish any reasonable expectancy to have been awarded the public project. This is regardless of whether the bidder was the lowest bidder, as Michigan courts have determined that a bidder has no standing to sue the Township. This includes any claims to recover lost profits or the expected price of the contract.
