I was looking at the website emaryland marketplace
where state wide contracts are posted for Maryland. It is an interesting website for contractors or anyone who wants to bid on a Maryland project or anyone who is just nosey. On the right sidebar are the main two items I look for "Bid Opportunities" and "Award Notices". The Award Notice part vary from a contract for $9.00 to dispose of used TV's to a contract to supply breakfast cereal at $1,316,498.62 granted to The Great Gourmet in Federalsburg or to being an expert witness for $10,000. I can't figured out why when they do a contract bid in the millions the dollar figure has odd cents in it. Why not just round it off to whole dollars. No doubt a cost plus contract.
