You are right on both of yojr responses. But if we as subs started making some suggestions to reasonable prices, maybe they the mso's and primes would start seeing how far off most of these prices have gotten to be. Alot of this maintenance and bau work is priced ridiculously low, atleast to me anyway. And the way the line items are interpreted ,excluded or re written to be all Inclusive it's almost impossible to profit on some of these jobs.
Just saying this is our trade and industry and our voices should be heard. We should profit as well. Good luck and take care
