Bidding 911

Hello, thank you in advance for providing any input on this thread. My company primarily specializes in commercial and office janitorial maintenance.

I know that it is not the wisest idea to bid a job which includes providing paper products (paper towels & Tp), and soap, but I have the opportunity to bid on some very lucrative accounts. Unfortunately the company requesting the bids has required that these products be supplied by the cleaning contractor. I am racking my brain trying to figure out the best way to bid that portion of the job. I assume that there are rules of thumb or formulas that can be used. Can someone please help me understand how to bid this out?

Thank you again

There are formulas for this but in the long run you would be much better off to bill them for actual usage.
