Bid shopping

A practice by which contractors, both before and after their bids are submitted,
attempt to obtain prices from potential subcontractors and material suppliers that are lower than the contractorsā€™ original estimates on which their bids are based, or after a contract is awarded, seek to induce subcontractors to reduce the subcontract price included in the bid.
