The Bidding Companies

Company 1 - Kids Do It

You have the reputation of hiring people at minimum wage and providing little professional supervision. However, the quality of work produced has been good. This year the son of the director of Sun City Amateur Softball Association would like a job with your company.

You keep your costs down by employing young people on a part time basis. In addition, you are self-insured and build into each contract a 5% premium to be set aside in escrow.

Your net worth as a company is $47,500. However, you plan to buy three new 21 inch heavy duty mowers at $567.50 each if you get this contract. They last about one year as they are abused.

Travel between your jobs is provided by truck for your employees. You estimate weekly travel for this contract at 80 miles per week at a cost of 43 cents per mile.

The major limitation facing your company is that school interferes with your employees’ available time in the spring and fall. You plan your work to be done evenings and Saturdays at those times.

Company 2 - Trim ‘n’ All

You currently have two other customers already contracted for the summer. This job is of interest to you but you would need to hire one more person to fill out your crews.

You have a good record of service for the past eight years and have a net worth of $185,000 as a company. Because of your good record, you have a solid insurability record with Millard Fillmore Insurance Co.

You are planning to replace a 36" riding mower at a cost of $3,295 and would like to recover that cost over a three-year period. Approximately one third of the price should be built into your bid.

The only real drawback to this account is the travel between it and your other contracts. Round trip travel would be 20 miles each time at a cost of 41 cents a mile.

Company 3 - Got’cha Inc.

This will be your first venture into the corporate contract area. You have an excellent record with residential service for five years. Your current staff can handle this contract.

You will need to buy a riding lawnmower and trailer attachment at a cost of $3,876. You would like to recover 25% of that cost on this contract. Total net worth of your company is $108,000.

Last year two of your hands lost toes in mowing accidents. Your insurance company has increased your premium this year to $125 per person per month.

Travel will not be a problem since you are located two blocks from the softball complex. You are willing to reduce your bid by 5% to get this contract this year and get your foot (with all toes) in the door.

To sweeten your bid, you are willing to offer one set of bases for each field as a donation.

Company 4 – The Grass Man

You have the largest lawn service in the community and have enough renewed contracts to keep you busy. However, you are interested in bidding to keep out some of the competition and to satisfy friends on the board of the Amateur Softball Association.

Your net worth as a company is in excess of $330,000. However, you have a lawsuit against you with a damage claim of $125,000. Because of this, your insurance has risen to $105.00 per person per month.

This contract would allow you to buy an extension arm tree trimmer at a cost of $1,435, which would be a nice addition to your arsenal.

You pride yourself on being able to work faster than estimated, but to accomplish this, you pay your employees better than average wages.

Travel expense to this contract site would be about $35.00 weekly and would be offset by the fact that you own the only sanitary landfill in the region.

The Bidding Companies

Company 1 - Tap, Inc.

Tap, Inc. is the technical assistance program provided by the local municipal park and recreation department. This program is an attempt by the public agency to provide professional recreation services to organizations within the community.

Tap, Inc. has direct access to bulk purchasing of recreation equipment and is therefore able to keep costs down. In addition, the ready staff of the department can be moved from public program to contract with ease. The administrator for this contract would be the only new full time employee.

The city provides fringe benefits to all employees with average 14% per employee. In addition, the accounting office includes a cost share for their services in maintaining any external contracts or 10% of the bid.

Company 2 - Fun in the Sun

Fun in the sun is a relatively new company in this area whose major contracts have been with resorts and hotels in the provision of recreation services on a seasonal basis. The move into industrial recreation is seen as the next major provider of stable business. In an attempt to enter this new market, Fun and Sun is willing to enter a bid containing only a 3% profit margin.

The staff of Fun and Sun is recognized as being highly creative and professional. They will provide the minimum program, but will add three special holiday packages for special recreation activities at a cost of only $500.

Fun and Sun must hire an administrator for this contract and will provide additional staff from their employed personnel. The personnel currently on staff average $15,000 annual salary and are paid an additional $200 monthly for the inconvenience of travel or relocation on short notice.

Company 3 - Interns Are Us

Recognizing the fact that many recreation undergraduates are in need of challenging internship opportunities, Interns Are Us has entered the commercial recreation job market.

Interns Are Us will provide a full time administrator who will arrange for the employment of interns who will work on a quarterly basis. Each intern will be paid $600 per month for their three month experience.

Interns Are Us would like an 8% profit margin in this contract.
