When I began thinking of possible topics for my philosophy paper I was looking for a topic that was interesting to me relevant to my field of study and also pertained to philosophy and worldviews I am Construction Management major and through Estimating I last year I was introduced to a concept called bid shopping We briefly discussed the practice of bid shopping and why it was wrong The only reason that I could gather from my professor for bid shopping being considered wrong was that it was an assumed law that all estimators went by Well that wasnt enough of a reason for me so I questioned weather or not bid shopping was wrong or not I was then accused of being unethical by my peers and my professor On the contrary I am a very ethical person I just am not the type to accept something just because that is the way its always been done or because of some assumed law Since that day in class I havent thought a great deal about the issue however when co nsidering topics for this paper I decided that I would like to dig deeper into this issue so that I would have a good understanding of others viewpoints and then be able to form my own intelligent views on bid shopping Lets back up for a minute before deciding if bid shopping is ethical or not we need a clear understanding of what it is and when it occurs First a little bit of estimating background is necessary When an owner decides to build a building he opens the building responsibilities up for bid A general contractor then looks at the plans and specifications for the building and begins to form a bid or price to build the structure In almost all cases the general contractor will sub-out portions of the work to sub-contractors These subcontractors will submit a bid to the general contractor
