We caution against trying to play one contractor off against another.  This would be the process of providing one contractor with the lower bid of their competitor (assuming the scope is equal) to see if they will lower their bid.  While competitive bidding is certainly valid, the problem with this way of getting more competitive bids is that after a while, the better contractors will simply withdraw their bid if they think you are going to continue this process.  In the end, your lowest bidder left may not be the contractor you really want to use as their bid may end up lower than the amount they need to do the work correctly. 

Ultimately this could end up being your problem if the lowest bidding contractor fails midway through the project or tries to get you to pay more with bogus change orders.
