All proposals will be evaluated in accordance with applicable Hall County rules, regulations and laws. This bid will be evaluated using a multi-step process. The first step is to evaluate “proposal” submissions. Factors to be considered in the evaluation include: ability of the professional staff, approach to projects, experience in similar projects, performance in past projects and references for same services. This step will result in a “shortlist of qualified firms”. During the evaluation process, the selection committee and the County reserve the right, when it may serve the County’s best interest to request information or clarification from proposers or to allow corrections of errors or omissions. Once the “short list” is compiled, the second step is to evaluate “cost proposal” which should have been submitted at the same time in a separate sealed envelope. The firms short listed will be invited to interview with the committee.

The County shall reserve the option to reject any or all bids, in whole or part, or to select any bidder to complete the described Work. Award of Contract will not be solely based on low bid, but also on quality, references and other subjective criteria as the County may deem necessary and as the County may determine at its sole discretion. The Undersigned Bidder expressly understands that his/her proposal may be rejected by the County for any reason without liability on part of the County to the Undersigned Bidder.
