- Walbridge Aldinger Company, Inc.
The Board also directed its Legal Committee to work with Miller Canfield to draft a (new) suspension policy for presentation to the Board at its next regular meeting on January 25, 2012.
Then the Board voted to accept (for consideration) a bid protest filed by Walbridge Aldinger, on Contract PC-786, which the Board had approved for award to Walsh Construction on December 21, 2011. The Board voted to conduct a public hearing to determine whether Walbridge Aldinger is a "responsible bidder."
(Does this mean the Board might rescind its award to Walsh if it finds Walbridge to be a responsible bidder? And what about the policy of not contracting with persons you're suing? Why conduct such a hearing if you've already directed your legal counsel to sue Walbridge and the other contractors for racketeering and civil conspiracy?)
(Confused? You're not alone!)
