I wonder what Graham can really gain even if they do 'win'.
Someone previously said that they will take their lumps and move on... now they aren't?
How could this effect their other projects with the City?
Like Full Mountain, I believe option 1 is the standard operating procedure.
However in this case I believe SOP will be modified. This is why I asked up thread as to the number of competitors to Graham. If there is a small number of competitors, then city administration will advise council to change SOP. Its better to change the SOP than have 1 or 2 bidders realise they can take city to cleaners because 2-3 of their competitors cannot respond to RFP.
If Ms Farrell is looking for an education in what happens when you disqualify 1 respondent in a field of 4; I can provide about dozen CFOs who will attest to what happens next (your subsequent RFP responses all have inflated proces). This is what happens when a public company cuts off their external financial auditor, the RFP price rises because the respondents all talk to one another.
