The delayed bid letting to begin Kansas City's Sprint Center foundation excavation finally happens:
Contractors who balked at responding to the original request for bids complained that the 2˝-inch thick document was cumbersome and onerous. One described it as having “public sector bureaucracy all over it.”

City and Mortenson officials believed the biggest obstacle was the interpretation by potential bidders that the contract would make them liable for up to $25,000 per day in damages should the arena miss its completion deadline. Among other things, the revised bid specifications capped that potential damage amount at $150,000.
