Suppliers helping write some tenders: BIG

The BIG has found that in the case of some public housing buildings, suppliers have been writing the spec included in the calls for tenders to acquire generators. It’s not allowed for the consulting engineers contracting with the city to have suppliers essentially doing their work for them (and, in so doing, easily tie up a sale) but it seems that’s been going on.

In another BIG story Monday, the city department that acquires vehicles has been found handwaving requirements for tendering.
