How will the University evaluate my bid or proposal?

What are the factors taken into consideration when determining an award?

Supplier awards are based on the most responsible and responsive qualified bidder who meets all specifications, terms and conditions of the bid proposal.

Some factors considered in addition to price may be quality, adherence to specifications, delivery, service and warranty, depending on the intended use of the commodity or service. Bids are awarded based on price only when quality, delivery, etc. are equal.

The University reserves the right to waive technicalities or minor discrepancies in any bid, if waiving would serve the best interest of the University.
