Here's the deal. Been mowing the local Post Office accounts for 10 years. Every February, I call the office manager just to confirm I'm mowing for the upcoming season. She connects me to the postmaster, chat with him and he tells me to continue as I have been. Well, this year, the office manager puts me on hold and instead of connecting me to the postmaster, she informs me I need to submit a bid. I have no problem with this, but out of curiousity, I ask her who else is bidding. She tells me " A Friend Of A Mail Carrier". I submit my bid, and she calls me 4 weeks later to inform me that the job was awarded to someone else. Is there a conflict of interest here?? A Friend of a mail carrier???
