An open, competitive and transparent bid process...

When it came time to replace the field at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Buffalo an open, competitive and transparent bid process was initiated.   I know the Bills are a struggling franchise but it does beg the question:  Why does Montgomery County exclude all other bidders and pay grossly inflated prices?  If other turf suppliers are good enough for the Buffalo Bills (and Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, St. Louis Rams, The Pro Bowl in Hawaii, etc...) surely they are qualified enough to bid on jobs in Montgomery County?

...The current field will be torn up and replaced this month. The new turf, known as Titan, has a lifespan of up to 15 years...
