Unnecessary complexity

Bernie Siben blogs about an RFP that is over the top in detailed requirements -- yes, if you look at it fairly, the public organization has designed the form so that things are truly 'fair' and the responses would allow a complete measurement based on 'objective' criteria -- the the cost for most smaller AEC consulting firms in preparing the proposal would far exceed the potential work value -- so the number of interested bidders will be lower than should be; and the client, presumably, will pay a higher price.

This reflects my observations on excessively complex bids, an article of relevance especially within Canada.
