In this week’s Bids from Hell 214: In this day and age?
“Please provide us with 17 binders with your complete bid on paper. In case you would like to provide us with a digital copy as well, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. In case of a difference between the paper and digital copies, we will assume the paper copy to be the correct one.”
If you would have read this, let’s say, 15 years ago, you wouldn’t have bat an eye. But today? A paper copy? 17 times?
We have asked this company why they decided for this approach but we didn’t receive a reply, unfortunately.
