    See, and I checked back to 12/15/09 and you were one of the first to get an 1199 update notification. Took this long. Well till this coming Friday anyway.

    When you get if officially, you still have to post a new thread with the announcement.

    Maybe Jman will have some hope now.

    Technically yes, because we don't know jman's department. But believe me, we're all following his too.

    Thanks everyone! Congratulations to everyone else who is getting an award this week! Our ambulance co. president, who has been helping me all along with our grant, was very surprised too. We are breaking the news to the rest of the company tomorrow.

    I don't know if my public plea for an award on these forums had anything to do with it, but I'd like to believe so. This was absolutely awesome to be able to deliver the news the day I came home from school.

    Good luck to everyone who is still waiting. It's a slow process, but it's worth it.

    Now we get to follow the bidding, and see how badly the vendors want to sell an ambulance!

    I'm lost. For the bidding, do I send out the RFP to manufacturers (e.g. Braun, Lifeline, Road Rescue, etc)? Or, do I have to try and find a dealer of each one of these in/near my state?

    Congrat's Med Now can I get you to get some word on my grant

    I'd contact the manufacturer's and ask for local dealer's closest to you.

    I'm guessing the crew has already decided on the goodie's ? Keep in mind the distances after the sale for warranty and recalls.If they come to you to perform repairs would be even better. Chassis work would be local.
    I do hope you planned on a winch for the front and back or at least tow hooks since it will be a 4x4 ?

    Medstudent,

    Did you accept the reduction, or appeal it and get the requested amount?

    We appealed the reduction, but they immediately said no. So, we accepted the reduction.

    April...I guess it's official now, I saw your Ambulance Company's name on the list. CONGRATS...now the hard work actually starts, don't forget as you move through the process you guys are in charge, don't let a dealer or salesman pursuade you, let them know its a competition for your dollars.

    They should have delayed the award until next month. Then it would be April's April Award (AAA).

    Congrats. The hard part is over, the fun begins.

    Sombody took their funny pill this morning, or forgot it. (AAA) right!

    If her award is there, the deal remains Miss Medstudent.

    Post a new thread announcing your award. Am thinking of getting Jman to do it too.
