How the pros do it

In July, we reported Western Pro Show Rentals - which organized the provincial Liberal leader's tour during the 2001 and 2005 election campaigns - had been directly awarded the $90,000 contract to provide audio visual services for the premier's fourth annual innovation and excellence awards. And, according to a document posted last Tuesday on BC Bid, "sound and technical support" for the fifth annual regional and provincial ceremonies will also be "provided by ProShow." Fancy that! Pro Show was directly awarded its earlier contract because "a competitive process would interfere with the ministry's ability to maintain security or order or to protect human, animal or plant life or health."

Typical BC Bid BS.

This is only newsworthy to those who are unaware of how contracts are given to organizations and individuals.

What I'd like to know is why is BC Bid so hard to search? Why don't they allow:
Searching by Ministry
Searching by Vendors who have been awarded contracts (example IBM)
Searching by $ value

And why don't they make available a regular detailed listing of all DIRECT AWARDS like the Federal Government does?

Are they trying to hide something? Never mind, we know the answer.
