This is what I wrote….I need a a suggestion for a judicial remedy. 

  A contract is a legal bindingdocument which is viewed as a strict enforcement between parties to perform accordingto the proposal and or contract (General contract principles, n.d). The Source Selection Committee reviews and analyzes allportions of the proposal to avoid any shortcomings or a need of clarificationbefore an award is given. There should never be too much room for mistakes in thisparticular field due to enforceable actions by law. But painstakingly, if the offeree is faced with a mistakefrom within the offeror’s a proposal it can be known as a unilateral or amutual mistake (Generalcontract principles, n.d).A unilateral mistake occurs when oneparty misunderstands either a term of the contract for some essential factconcerning the bases of the contract; a mutual mistake occurs where the partiesshare an erroneous belief concerning the basis for the contract. (GeneralContract Principles, p.2-11). As mentionedbefore contracts can be complex or lengthy and within reason mistakes do happenunder both circumstances (Generalcontract principles, n.d).
