acceptance (sixty (60) days if no period is specified), executes the further contractual documents and gives the bond(s) required by the terms of the bid as
accepted within the time specified (ten (10) days if no period is specified) after receipt of forms by the Principal; or (b) in the event of failure to execute the further
