WHY IS A.P.E. SUING THE CITY OF NEW ORLEANS OVER THE UNIFORM CONTRACT?The Prices (Part 1)
When the city released the bid for uniforms, it split the bid into many different categories: Shirts, Pants, etc. Within each category, there were several line items. At the bottom of each category, there was a space for a subtotal (sum of all the line item prices); below that, a "PERCENTAGE OFF" space (to be applied to the previous prices); and finally, a "GRAND TOTAL" space to put the final sum of the prices the City would be charged on an invoice. Below is a scan of the actual bid form.
