Here is a link to the RFP. http://www.ci.pensacola.fl.us/DocumentCenter/View/6816?bidId=122
Clear in the RFP is that the winner will report to the Potted Plant.
Services of the firm shall be under the general direction of the Marketing Manager or their designee who shall act at the City’s representative during the performance of the contract.
I received the photo below from a reader. Normally I would not post a photo of an event like a wedding, but when the Airport Marketing Manager is getting married and its important to invite the Airport's advertising contractor, you have to question her independence.
- Does the Potted Plant sit on the selection committee?
- Does she chose the members of the committee?
- Does attendance at the Marketing Manager's wedding and how nice your GIFT was have influence on her decision?
- Did she declare the gift from a City contractor?
