Awarding Subcontractors and Suppliers Contracts

Awarding Subcontractors and Suppliers Contracts


When awarding subcontracts and purchase orders, a best practice is to not use the same companies very often. My fear is, if you constantly use the same subcontractors, that you will not obtain competitive pricing.


If you were in a situation where you have used the same subcontractor on multiple projects and they were low on the next project, what would you do?  Also, let’s assume you won the project by utilizing the lower subcontractor’s price.  Would you award the contract at the second company’s price or ask them to match the lower company’s price?
