The 6 page letter lists a series of objections to the bid as written.On page 3 of the letter, Morrison calls for the removal of the second and third paragraphs of the bid specification document pointing out that "they only apply to the continental 48 states of the USA unless they have recently built a bridge to Guam. Stop wasting our time."
On the same page Morrison writes:
"Paragraph four is interesting. The government of Guam is going to pay the vendor on the day of delivery on Guam? Don't think so. Remove this clause and again, stop wasting our time."READ Morrico President Allan Morrison's protest letter
The objectionable clauses in the bid specifications cited by Morrison are listed by their letter and number designations.
For example, "A2.2.2 Delete this clause. It is irrelevant," writes Morrison.
And "A 2.3.3. Delete this last sentence. There is no state government on Guam."
Among the other objections cited in the letter:
* "A.1.1.7 90 day delivery date is unrealistic ... You have a bid requesting that the ambulance and the chassis get manufactured ... this takes time ...new truck chassis lead times are currently 120 days plus the ambulance install time and shipping."
* "A 2.1 ...a requirement for two different factories in the USA is archaic, irrelevant to this bid spec and restricts competition."
* "A 2.5 and A 2.5.1 Warranty ... write a warranty specification that makes sense. One that identifies the uniqueness of supporting various component warranties on Guam and one that can be measured objectively in the bid evaluation process. The existing clause does none of this."
* "3.6 Model Physical Characteristics ...make the specification performance based or don't issue a bid at all."
