    let's just say, that you knew someone personally, who is in charge of arranging maint + other services for other businesses. i guess this would be a "property manager?" anyhow, this person gives you the inside scoop of a cieling bid that he can ok. he also has the athority to sign on the spot, if your bid falls within these guidelines and he feels you are the one for the job. would it be unethical, to bid at the highest they will accept, and give him a "thank you" of cash, for accepting your bid?

    Its very tempting to do so, but why not figure out how much it would cost you if you were to bid the job as if it were any other job, either way youll profit.
