Hello there --
Your bid is still valid. While it has become a common practice to initialize changes on contracts if you make a change to the final document, there are no laws stating that you absolutely must put your initials beside such changes or the change is invalid. If you do not want the bid to go through you could technically make such an argument, however, if the matter actually ends up in court and you are under oath you would be compelled to tell the court that you made the change and it was acceptable to you. By the same token, if you want the bid to be valid and someone is telling you that it is not valid because you did not initialize the change, they are not legally correct and a court of law will enforce the bid contract if you actually pursued a lawsuit to enforce the contract.
