This is true, PRE-Award. But the contract is a powerful instrument. If the
sub list isn't in the contract, as part and parcel of the contract, you will
(IMO) pay bloody h*ll getting such an "understanding" to stand up in court.

Let him know (in front of the Owner) that when he signs the
contract, the sub list is considered part of his contract (make sure
that is also stated in your spec.).
