Emission check station closing

Interesting timing on Envirotest's announced lay-off of emission testing workers.
Envirotest Wisconsin plans to close its Waukesha plant as of July 1, resulting in as many as 105 permanent layoffs there and at 11 other locations, state officials said Friday.

Envirotest operates the Wisconsin Vehicle Inspection Program, but its state contract is expiring.
The Envirotest contract with the state expires at the same time. This begs a question.
Is closing this station part of the bid requirements that the DOT issued or is it Envirotest's idea to reduce the cost of their bid to win the new contract?
This closing wasn't noted in the previous articles. Any competitor's bid will be an automatic loser if they propose to keep the Waukesha station open.
