In some service lines and locations, Clients are pursuing Exclusive relationships with Vendors. An Exclusive relationship locks in a Vendor's standard rates and sets them up as the Exclusive Vendor for those opportunities.
In the case the Exclusive Vendor cannot perform the job, the opportunity is released to our Backup market. On these opportunities, the Back-up Vendor will be asked to meet standard rates that will pre-populate for you when submitting an estimate. As always, you can decline any opportunities that are not good fits.
