1. What other factors should Marvin and his team consider?

In order to make the bid/no-bid decision, Marvin and his team should consider the following factors:

– Capability- From the case study, we know that if Marvin bids, then there will be higher overall profits and earnings per share because of the more extensive business base. This means that he can make some money on the project. After determining the profitability factor, Marvin and team should consider the capability, which means that if their company is capable of doing work. They should review there a current backlog of any upcoming project. They should consider human resources, equipment, staff, and other resources so they would be able to complete the project within the required timeline. Additionally, Marvin and his team should consider about their company’s financial capability. They should consider if they have bonding capacity and adequate cash flow to perform the work.

2. Should they bid on the job?

– In order to determine whether to bid or no-bid, one should undertake a formal and rational process. After looking at the pros and cons, my recommendations would be that Marvin and his team should not bid because bidding will release the company’s cost structure which can keep the company in higher risk in front of its competitors. The threat of losing talented employees would cost them more than the long-term profit. More importantly, the risk of exposing the entire cost structure may cause them to lose in future bids. If Marvin and its team are afraid to say NO or to be removed from bidders list for future, they should be aware of the damages. I would instead suggest the team to opt-out of the contract by making a well- written no-bid letter rather than submitting a proposal which will bring the company internal secrets to public and thus jeopardizing the company’s reputation.
