For the contract or contracts that the lowest evaluated responsive bidder will not be awarded the contract or contracts due to lack of meeting the combined required qualification, the next lowest evaluated responsive bidder will be awarded the contract or contracts taken into consideration the application of the above procedure applied on the lowest evaluated responsive bidder in case he is not meeting the required qualification criteria for the combination of contracts.
