Unfair Kansas City New Airport Burns & Mac Anti-Competitive Practices?!?!

Here's a tiny bit of what's screwed up about the NO-BID deal underway . . . Call it "news" for those of us who didn't already talk this subject in the comments a few days ago. Checkit:

Burns & McDonnell irks KCI competitors with exclusive contractor deals

Burns & McDonnell is playing strongly off its hometown credentials and is using a shrewd tactic in its campaign to win a $1 billion contract for a new Kansas City International Airport terminal. The Kansas City engineering company confirmed that it has signed minority- and women-owned contractors to exclusive arrangements that keep those companies from working with other teams that may put forth a proposal.

I own a WBE company that provides a product they will need when building the airport. None of the 3 major bidders has contacted me. I am listed in the city's directory of WBE/MBE firms and I am the only qualifying firm that provides this specific product. I am about to get screwed over. I also live in KCMO and I will be voting no on any airport proposals for this reason.

Burns and Mac should be disqualified, same Rockhurst mafia, Mayor, Reardon, Mark One. When will Kansas weigh in on obviously manipulated bs process

agentzero said...

Who is guarding the integrity of process, the Star, the Mayor, the Chamber? Hell no the have been in on the fix

agentzero said...

Then these same bs artists pontificate that we need to work regionally, which is code for expand the powers of the bs artists over jurisdictions that are already much better run

agentzero said...

Not soliciting options for upgrading airport is wrong, as is rigging no participation votes. Throw the arrogant bs artists out and see who the money behind the curtains comes from

agentzero said...

That preposterous add shows the amazing lack of judgement. Burns is worried now that the best fix their money can buy is found out.

agentzero said...

TheStar calls them shrewd, we say the process has been corrupt and disgenuine

agentzero said...

How does the star confuse shrewd with disgustingly wrong minded and corrupt

agentzero said...

The public is about to call bs on the bs artists

agentzero said...

Someone should make a video montage of the greatest hits from this cluster, with Sly reaching and saying every bs thing he can think of, which made him look like an scam artist contriving to get the fix through

agentzero said...

Maybe that bs works in the ambulance chasing world Sly but not in integrity governance while you are trying to make a power grab over areas that are simply less corrupt and are well managed

agentzero said...

People need to quit equating kc prospering with Burn em Mac corrupting government

9:54, the Star got tax deferral payola to cheerlead for the city, which it now does enthusiastically. As was once said of politicians, a good newspaper is one that when bought, stays bought.

agentzero said...

The Mark One comments were laughably arrogant, that they are loaded, loaded with entitled, rigged monopoly arrogance but the world works to forever right a wrong. Sly and Gloria and the rigged fix seem to be meeting a public that them preposterously obvious and worthy of pure disdain

B&M knows they're not the most qualified and are far from the best company on the list. So they have to resort to gimmicks, politics and back room dealing to get this deal.

Mark One is the poster child for why many WBE companies are BS. Thanks Daddy.

You sell air filters. While a credible endeavor I don't think lining up an air filter company this far in advance really sways the project to any team.
