Cool I bid the project today...

I put in our technical proposal and bid for a large project this morning. I have spent 30 consecutive 10 - 14 hour days putting this fucker together and it appears [my Little Bird just called] that I am the apparent low bidder. They still have to review the technical proposals of the four low numbers [including mine] but I have bid on this series before. It's a demolition contract to perform extensive asbestos and lead paint abatement, PCB oil removal from fluid filled transformers and removal of underground fuel tanks, clean closure assessments, etc.


We left around a hundred large on the table, so it was pretty close.

Way to go! Here's hoping the contract awarding wraps up quickly and in your favor.

Best of luck to you A. I can only imagine how frustrating it is to sit and wait after working so hard to put the bid together (and considering the stakes on the table).

Don't forget to keep all the cool batteries this time, and take pics of the space-age aquarium batteries.
