I got word today that I lost a bid on a fairly large mowing/maintenance contract to another firm. There company requesting the bids moved into a vacant commercial space this winter and asked for bids/proposals on the maintenance earlier this spring. There were no set specs to go by. I plan to call this week to find out among other things, whether to contract they awarded was a multi-year or just this season. I would also like to find out exactly what services the winning contractor included in their bid. What other questions can I ask? What information would a firm customarily give out to other bidders. I would think that asking what the winning bid price was would be a bit much but what about how many firms bid and where my price was in regards to the winning bid and were they the low bid.
