It's always hard to tell from one project to another but patterns do emerge, so that's why you're following up, and that's why you're tracking down the owners of other projects and getting those references and really going through that information. Because it's not just about the price it's also about all of these other, sort of quality, and being able to work with them, and the idea that they're able to bring in things on budget, the idea that they keep the project rolling and get things done on time. Those are all very meaningful concerns that might be the reason that you might not go with a low budget, you might choose to go with somebody who's higher.
