This scenario is not too unusual and I was in fact debating that as member of a panel at a seminar yesterday. In these circumstances the Contractor has taken the risk so should satisfy itself that the required information is correct, sufficient and accurate. If not I would strongly advise carrying out further investigations or the risk the contractor exposes itself too is very considerable.
