them. Even if it is normal in the world to understate the amount for the bids, then suddenly raise it whenever the contract comes to getting paid out, it is still wrong to me. It would be similar to a contractor saying they can redo your bathroom for $3,000 to your specifications, then it coming to the very end (assuming there were no complications) and saying, “No actually, the cost of my labor is going to total $4,500 instead. Sorry I didn’t tell you sooner.” I was able to find a website for you that talks about more common ethical bidding practices of which I will link below. Through there I would like to talk about a couple of the practices that I believe will help us in the future, if we decide to use bidding practices. The first one is to make sure we develop impartial specifications, meaning we don’t lean toward one certain quality over another for suppliers, in order for there to be competition. The next would be sharing the criteria with potential suppliers and setting reasonable deadlines for all suppliers. I know that there are a few different practices that people use whenever it comes to pushing the boundaries on ethics, or just disregarding ethical practices in general. One that I might not mind using is to extend the deadline for a certain supplier over others, depending on the circumstances that they are having. If they have a problem I would need to take it case by case scenario. If you do have anymore questions or would like to know more ideas I have for ethical bidding practices we can use, please let me know. Sincerely, Ashley Sullentrup References

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
