They'll be asking now. You know they're monitoring Mikey's board.
Oh sorry. I meant Angie’s List
@Lee Stockwell any chance I can email you my bid and have you look it over? They were very vague on the bid request but I did my best to provide them with the needed info.
Man. I am flustered with this bid right now. What a disorganized cluster****. I’m too annoyed to every type about it right now.
Honestly, if I get this it will be a miracle.
password, hope that helps!
I hope you get it! Looks like there's plenty of footage to make some serious money.
It wasn’t very last minute. The guy never scheduled a time to have me come out and measure. He said he would email all the info needed. So all I get email is “building is 50k sqft with stairs”. I’m like WTF? The bid had to be in today. So I noted my pricing and stated that due to the late notice of the bid, and lack of information the bid was only based on the info provided.
I get a response at 4:25pm that I can come in and walk the building. I call the number, no answer. I leave a voicemail and say I’m on my way. When I get there the place is locked down like Fort Knox. No one will let me in without a scan card. Knocked on the door and was ignored by the employees inside. By now I’m fuming pissed.
I emailed back “submit my original bid”.
They should have scheduled time for me to go in and do it right. Stupid me for thinking the feds would actually provide me with the correct information. I might try again tomorrow morning.
I had something similar happen a few years back. The guy phones, and says we’ve got a building with a few floors, the carpets aren’t that bad, there’s 2 sets of stairs, what’s your price? As I started to ask him detailed questions, he started to get short with me. I said, with the severe lack of information, I can’t give him a accurate quote.... his reply? ‘JUST FORGET IT THEN... and hung up on me.....
I have to be CSIS cleared for my work at a nuclear facility. The forms are very detailed, but I have never had to include passwords. I believe the employees with higher security access may have to.
The paper work I am required for site, is five pages, I can't imagine twenty eight pages.
I could be wrong (I seldom am dammit! and I hope I'm wrong ) but the more difficult it is the less likely you were ever an option.. Coming from another industry where I would "ok" 70k of product to be used in a single day "I HAD TO HAVE 3 QUOTES" on my desk regardless of who I chose. The price was irrelevant but the process had to be followed (I personally never chose the cheapest but I NEEDED serious reasons why I chose the most expensive) it was my butt on the line and getting it kicked was a daily possibility.
I often told my preferred supplier where they needed to be, and I had no problem rejecting their bid to keep them in line
