 I think this is one of the most thoughtful and well reasonsed responses I've
read on this list.  As we will be hiring contractors (soon I hope!)  I'm taking
this to our Design team to bring to the attention of the group.  I believe your
written thoughts are in line w/ what their beliefs and this email will support
them in their on-going efforts to make choices based on fairness and quality
and not price alone.  Thank you for this!
