In a Multi-lot project, the Common entry within the Question Tree is classed as a Lot.
The Common Lot defines questions that apply to all Submissions, regardless of Lot.
If you try to delete the Common Questions in a multi-lot project, you will see an error “The action cannot be completed - Cannot delete the Common Lot”.
So, how do you then delete the Common Lot?
In short - it’s not possible to delete the Common Lot.
The reason for this is that the Common questions are a pre-set Lot; of which all common questions are placed under – these are the questions that are generic regardless of which Lot(s) the bidder is participating in.
If it is not required; do not try to delete the Common Lot but remove the weight, remove any questions and AWARD will ignore this Lot. Each of the individual lots will then be worth 100% rather than the 100% being split between the Common and lot specific questions.
