This friend of mine started a new contracting business in Quebec this week what a great place he said. He bid his first government job and got it! I said to him you were the low bidder then? He said no way! I said well how did you get the job. He said it was pretty easy four bids came in one from a local company for 180k another from an out of town firm at 220k and one from an Ontario company at 160. My bid was 300k. What I said how did you get the business then! Easy I told the Government agent in charge of the contract take my 300k bid I hire the Toronto guy for 160k and we split the 140K 50 50!
