Restricting to whom a city might outsource its needs to only that city's resources seems ludicrous - one of those silly restrictions that only government comes up with. I would think that one would go to the best resources available with more than one competitive bid for cost and comparison unless there happened to be only one expert to provide a given need (very unlikely.). I would be in favor of a caveat that favors a local provider, all other things being equal. Otherwise for efficiency, cost, expertise and a number of other reasons the best source at a competitive price should be the benchmark for cost and efficiency. It only makes good business sense for heaven's sake!

Who comes up with this nonsense??? Have they never run a business or even read a book on the subject????
