When government goes out to bid the the lowest bidder wins. When they go out for a request for proposal (RFP) the lowest bid doesn't always get picked. For complete transparency there should be a list of political donations the winner of the RFP has made over the last year. The donors names should be part of the resolution when it is voted on. We need complete transparency in government!
