Body Snatchers Contract
GSSP Enterprises Inc has decided to let the City out of their current contract for removing dead bodies because the City used over inflated numbers for the bidding process and GSSP is losing money on every body they transport (Sun Times, Channel 5).
- "They quoted roughly 8,600 bodies [a year]. The actual number was 40 percent of that. You can't survive if you're getting paid per unit. Now, we're bidding on real numbers -- not on the city's fictitious numbers," Higgins said.
Imagine that. The City using fictitious numbers for a contract. Why would they do that? Why, to discourage other companies from bidding on a contract. Now GSSP can rebid the contract at their whim, raise their margins and truly clean up moving 3,440 bodies a year. All we wonder is if there will be any disruption in the body pickups? Because D-3 for removing sounds OK.
