Not sure if I'm breaching etiquette here or not, but I told Company A if I didn't hear news about a project by a certain date (week of 6/28), I was going to consider the project scrapped. Received permission from Company C (Company B is no longer in business, yay!) to repitch, so I did.
Twelve hours after I re-pitched, an email arrived, accepting my project.
Now I'm torn: Do I tell A it's been repitched, or do I wait to see if C declines it, then accept A's offer?
As far as I'm concerned, A had their chance, and C's schedule is more timely, should they accept the proposal.
Is this a breach of professional etiquette? Or am I well within my rights to do this?
