Bid Evaluation

August 2011

News, Info & Tools on Conducting a Bid Evaluation

Preview: To help public sector managers better Conduct a Bid Evaluation, RFPSOLUTIONS developed the Bid Evaluation Orientation Guide. Bid Criteria create the roadmap for communication between the buyer and the seller. Criteria identify the key elements of what the buyer seeks and enable the seller to determine whether they can meet those needs while providing direction on how to market their product. For any map to have value it must be accurate, complete and relevant, providing neither too much nor too little detail.  A bad map can cause confusion, induce time delays due to misdirection, excessive traffic and accidents, or be disregarded altogether.
