Proposals must include the required sections to achieve a uniform process and obtain the maximum degree of comparability. Proposals will be reviewed and scored against criteria to determine the best vendor for each project. The submission of a proposal in no way constitutes a contract, and all projects are contingent on funding availability and allowability. If a prospective vendor chooses to submit a proposal in response to this RFP, it is at the prospective vendor’s own cost and is not billable even if a contract is awarded. Once a project is initially awarded to a vendor, we will enter in to a contract negotiation and scope of work refinement process.
