Mybe if any of their bids were actual for the real cost of the project, rather than low enough to win the contract under government rules, they might make some money.

I really do feel the the whole "Must take the lowest bid" rule for government work needs to take into account past performance.

Eg your last 5 projects overran by an average 30% so for comparison we will wack 30% onto your bid.
