Woodworking Commission Available
The Iraqi Coalition Provisional Authority ("CPA") will be posting a
Request for Quotes ("RFQ") for a Woodworking project. It seems that
there isn't enough Saddam to go around. Many regions of Iraq have
expressed their desire to get a piece of Saddam.
Therefore the CPA is considering commissioning the construction of a
medieval rack to stretch Saddam to meet the country's urgent needs.
1- The rack must accommodate Saddam's frame and be strong enough to
stretch him as specified.
2- The wood chosen should be indigenous to Iraq.
3- Woodworkers are encouraged to consider the addition of a woodcarver
and woodturner to their team, as it is expected that the rack will be
displayed in the Iraqi National Museum after its single use.
4-The rack requires a warranty of only one extended use.
5- The CPA will specify the finish requirements due to certain fluids
expected to be present after use begins.
Only woodworkers resident in Iraq or in coalition partner countries
may be prime contractors. Subcontractors may be from any nation.
The CPA considers cost to be a secondary evaluation factor. An
unsolicited bid for $ 1.2 million has been received from Halliburton.
Further details will be posted as they are developed.
