This is funny---But pretty close to the truth


Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House in DC:
One is from New York, another is from Tennessee and the third is from Florida.
All 3 go with a White House official to examine the fence.

The Florida Contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring
then works some figures with a pencil.

"Well" he says "I figure the job will run about $900: $400 for materials, $400
for my crew, and $100 profit for me."

The Tennessee contractor also does some measuring, and figuring,then says,
" I can do this job for $700, $300 for materials, $300 for my crew, and $100 profit for me."

The New York contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the White House official and whispers, "$2700"

The official, incredulous, says, "You didn't even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?"

The New York Contractor whispers back, "$1000 for me $1000 for you, and we hire the guy from Tennessee to fix the fence."

"Done!" replies the government official.


AND THAT MY FRIENDS IS HOW GOVERNMENT CONTRACTING WORKS.
