    Everything is relative. Your profit margin percentage would be the same or close to it no matter what the total bid is/was. It's just a bigger number it doesn't necessarily mean you are going to pocket more money. Your expenses are also going to be much more.

    That's right ... better make sure you have your CPA included in preparing a bid like that.
