We virtually support the bid review and recommendation process in such ways as the following:
After bid opening, CBD will organize supplied bids for review. This entails a detailed review of the proposed equipment and services to verify all project goals are met.
Bids are equalized to allow for adequate comparison. Alternate configurations are reviewed to evaluate the cost/benefit relationship between competing solutions.
Your CBD Design Engineer/Project Manager will host a conference call with you to review the bid summary and coordinate post-bid interviews. Post-bid interviews are scheduled and are held via conference call with the Owner, CBD, and the bidder.
After interviews are conducted, a meeting is conducted to assist with bid selection. CBD creates Board Recommendation documents for you to present your recommendation to the Board or district leadership.
CBD will provide letters of communication to bidders that were not selected for the project and provide Purchase Order instructions to execute the contract and T&Cs with the awarded contractor.
