This would be a gooberment contract to be architect's and for construction. When gooberment does this it is LAW to get numerous bids. If this firm wasn't aware of that and for some reason believed that favor would return favor, they either have never dealt with the goob's before and/or are new to the business. They have no suite. Move on... RICO what a joke. The conspiracy is in your heads.

An even rarer situation is for local contractors and tradesmen to be hired in place of those preferred by the Ohio School Facilities Commission.
