What does it mean "taking exception" to a bid specification?

Whenever you deviate from a clause or specification in the bid document, it will almost always disqualify your proposal. What this tells the Procurement Professional is that your firm cannot comply with the minimum requirements of the bid. Where your proposal exceeds the minimum requirements, it is not considered "taking exception."​
