Said financial statements shall be certified as to their truth and accuracy by each bidder, as a bidder, or by the person by whom or under whose direction the statements were prepared. Said financial statements shall be accurate as of the date of certification, which date shall be not earlier than the date the Notice of Intention herein was first published.
