I have a contract with my supplier which is basically a summary of the accounts that my company was selling to.A general statement to the effect that they would support our efforts at those accounts listed was in the context.I was also in a contract with my customer although it was coming to an end and bids were sent out to others including my supplier.
We submitted our proposal only on the item we had been supplying for years. My supplier submitted a proposal on many items which included that which they supplied to us. The two of us were the only companies to provide pricing on the item we supplied.
Information was received from our customer in the normal course of follow up. The situation was confirmed (not the price) by my contact at our suppliers plant level.
