Question: Bids for a government contract are supposed to be opened

Bids for a government contract are supposed to be opened in a random order. For a given contract, there were 42 bids, 30 of them from domestic firms and 12 from foreign firms. The order in which the sealed bids were opened was as follows (D denotes a domestic firm and F a foreign one):
D D D D D D D D F D D D D D D F F D D D D D D D D F D D F D D D D D D F F F F F F F
Could the foreign firms claim that they had been discriminated against? Explain.
Is there evidence to conclude that one design is better than the other? If so, which one is it, and why?
