October 15th deadline is looming...

I love last minute shoppers. Especially those with "procurement divisions".

Can we get a quote? Sure! Or you can refer to the one sent out in at the beginning of September. That one is valid until the 15th.

What happens after the 15th? Well by then most of all our equipment has been allocated for the season. So if you still require our service, we would have to resubmit the quote.

Well our procurement division just put out the RFQ now. So what did you base your quote on? The exact same service specs you have published for the past 5 years, and have been provided for you in past seasons.

So just because we were slow, it's going to cost us XX%? payup
How long does it take? review the quote that was sent to you, should take 20 minutes or so, approve it and you still have a day to waste away.

You are forgetting the committee that had to review it, say "hey, that sounds like too much money. Let's shop around (again)", wait for a bunch of higher quotes to come back, then say "ok, we'll accept your quote now. What do you mean its no longer valid....?"

You forgot the middle part. Toward the end of the meeting someone talks about going for drink then someone else says lets table this till next months meeting and off they go.
