Construction estimators and bidders already face a gauntlet of challenges in the battle to secure work, manage risk, and minimize assaults to their margins. Add to that, important facts intentionally missing from the bidding documents (“left to negotiate later”) or being forced to participate in the arena of bad faith with the negotiator across the table – or even a professional colleague – and you have crossed the border into uncharted territory.

Bring your experience, voice and a pencil for this stimulating and thought-provoking annual forum tradition, as we present actual scenarios for your ethics consideration, and pick up some wisdom from those who have been there (and have the scars to prove it!)
