New Tricks....this time Garland...a bid was listed as an "Open Spec" and BAM!!! it goes sole-sourced.....

OK Folks, here we go again!

If you can't stand the heat, change your name or organization.....or in the case of cost comparisions, add a huge lump sum to the contract rather than have higher prices on the products....

In this case, we have "Commercial Innovations" which turns out to be a subsidiary of The Garland Company.
If you check google, a GMX, Inc. is listed at the same address as Commercial Innovations. However, their email address is attributable to The Garland Co.

See the Project herein, just let to bid:

Calaveras High School, Calaveras Unified School District
DSA # 02-109251; DSA File # 5-H2
Addendum # 3, July 11, 2008

and the listing under PART 2 - PRODUCTS is as follows:
C. Acceptable Manufacturers:
1. CommerciaI lnnovations, a subsidiary of The Garland Company, Inc.
