    Question Bidding

    I am conducting research on bidding systems within fire departments. Any help with answering these questions would be much appreciated:

    What kind of bidding is done? Vacation? Overtime? Position?
    What is the bidding period for any of these? Starting and ending month?
    How many man hours/work hours would you estimate it takes a department to complete a bid?
    How common is it for departments to buy back vacation time?

    Thanks.

    I think you will find most bidding is done in union departments mine is a rural county run department they use the application process for advancement. and as far as buy back vacation you use it or lose it. Overtime is on a first come first serve basis.
