A discussion I am forced to have with the same clients, forever, till the end of time:
"Going with the lowest bidder always ends up costing us a ton in the long run, so how do we think this time is going to go now that we found a new company of cheap devs?"
To be a little bit fair, at least it's "oh look another project that someone else had outsourced to the lowest bidder, let's integrate!" but yeah I'm sitting here going "it's probably going to cost us like 4-5x as much to integrate vs just writing that simple feature ourselves.
