ABC has a reputation for high-quality construction, and compliance with engineering, operating, labor, environmental and legal standards. The Corporate Values of ABC are Customer Satisfaction, Competitive Pricing, Honesty, Teamwork, and Innovation. John is responsible for hiring 35 heavy machinery operators for a construction project that ABC is about to start in Mexico. These operators will be required to operate earth-moving equipment like bulldozers, dump trucks, excavators, cranes, etc. For the project, ABC is also purchasing 3 bulldozers, 5 excavators, 2 cranes, and 10 dump trucks from a renowned manufacturer, XYZ, based in the US. This purchase, which is priced at the US $ 282 million, is being done by ABC’s Procurement Manager, Gilbert. O Gilbert is in the final stages of negotiations with Alan, the Sales Manager of XYZ, and has been trying to nvince Alan to reduce prices by 10% knowing that XYZ’s prices are usually higher than the competitor, Mapanese manufacturer. Gilbert could select the Japanese manufacturer, but the delivery time offered by this supplier is too long which would cause a delay in the project startup. Alan does not know about the long delivery period of the Japanese supplier. Alan has just called Gilbert and has suggested that he could give an 8% discount on the condition that his nephew, Richard, who is a bulldozer operator, be hired by ABC for the project. When Gilbert discusses this request with John, the latter refuses. Knowing that the 8% discount on $ 282 million is a very substantial amount which would lower the project costs and enhance profits for ABC, Gilbert holds a meeting with you, the General Manager of ABC.
