I just submitted a bid on a school board property. The invitation to bid letter that I received gave all the specifications. The letter stated that all the bids had to be in the office by a specified date and time. I really did my home work on this one, spent a lot of time working up the bid. The day comes to open the bids. I arrived at the specified time. There were three other land scape companies represented. I slipped in and sat down. Two people from different companies were talking and one asked, so you do the property here? Which was different from the one that was being bid. The reply was "no, not yet". I thought that an odd response. So the bid opening starts. There were nine bids on the table, and were opened. At the end of this I was the low bid. Then we were informed one of the companies present, did not have their bid present, but it would be picked up later and be reviewed. We were free to go and could call back later to see what their bid was. Well guess who got the bid? You gussed it. The company who's bid wasn't present. Even if the bid is legit, the way it was presented stinks. Do I have any recourse? Any advice would be helpful.
