Question: How would you as an interior designer work through the issue listed below? What are the issues? Why? Who? How?
Sam is the project manager and primary designer on a large medical office building for a major health care provider. His firm also has a subsidiary company that procures furniture for clients if the client approves. The client didnít realize that the design firm also had a sales division, since it was not locate in the same office building. The fact that they had a sales division was revealed during the initial presentation for the design contract.
The client company was very clear to Sam that the product specifications had to be put out to bid. They also told him that company policy requires at least 10 vendor bids to be obtained. This project was budgeted at least $176,000 at net. There were two items in the specifications that the client was very interested in having in the specification package, as they had standardized on the items at other locations. One was an ergonomically designed desk chair, and the other was a small side chair used n the waiting room.
Sam prepared the specifications so that the minimum number of bidders could easily be achieved. When he was checking on fabric options for the ergonomic chair, he wanted to specify a COM (Customers owned material) fabric- Sam was offered an extra 10% discount on the ergonomic desk chairs below what other bidders would be able to purchase the chairs. He mentioned this to his boss, who promptly contacted the sales manager at the subsidiary company.
