As I do not get involved with projects like this, can you tell me what this is all about.
They want the contractor to PAY $100 to put the bid in, and then submit another 10% as the cost of the job as a bond?

Is this for one service upgrade? Or 100?

Sorry Pete, looks like my comments/questions did not come through the original post.

I was more curious about what it entailed myself, and was wondering if anyone on the board heard of this contract.

all I know is what is written … Questions regarding this bid should be addressed to Chris Falls, Facilities Director, Friendship Ridge at 724-773-5223.

Nah, that’s OK. If I have to pay $100 just to submit a bid I’ll pass. :wink: :smiley:

Do post anything you find out though.

will do
