I recently received an IFB for mowing various locations in my local county for the the state of VA. The proposal is broken down as follows.......lawn tractor/with operator,,600hrs......lawn mower/with operator,,300hrs......weed eater/with operator,,400hrs......pickup truck/with operator,,200hrs......hedge trimmer/with operator,,100hrs I know I am bidding this with one operator in mind. I would like some advice as to what I should bid per hour on this operator with equipment....I have never bidded on a goverment contract,,,,so your input will be greatly appreciated !!! Thank You......Bids are due in on April 18th<br>
