Careful of tax incentives. Our developer had tax incentives for using minority 
companies as subcontractors. The problem was that they were brand new and 
didn’t exist before the legislation existed. The result was a lot of work that 
had to be redone, some not discovered until years later.

A flooring company said a few years ago that the bid winner for doing floors 
for Air Force 1 was a company led by a native Alaskan. No one in the flooring 
business had ever heard of such a company or person.
