It might be that the parking lot has parking for 100 cars and we're gonna do an alternate for an extra 20 spaces, something like that, where they're relatively big-ticket items and the idea is, you're just trying to aim down to find where the bids that come back match the budget that we have, because if we just say, here's the plan, here's the idea, like give us the number for this exactly, and it comes back at $500,000 more than we have, that means we have to go back through the whole bid process and redo it again. But if we can have enough information in here that we can sort of whittle the project down, like we have, all right, bidder C came through as the low bid, but when we add the alternate on, they're alternate is a lot higher. It actually makes it so that if we're gonna go for the alternate, bidder B may be better.
