Non-mandatory Pre Proposoal Conference
A non-mandatory pre-proposal conference has been established for this ITN. The conference will be held on July 26 at 9:00am, at the FAU Stadium, Gate 6
Florida Atlantic University 777 Glades Road
Boca Raton, FL 33431
For directions and campus maps, please visit:
The purpose of the pre-proposal conference is to provide a structured and formal opportunity for the Department to respond to questions from vendors as well as an opportunity to inspect the facility. The Department may provide additional background information at this time. Any major revisions to the ITN as a result of the pre-proposal conference, or answers to deferred questions affecting the substance of the solicitation, will be made in the form of written addenda to the original ITN at the discretion of the University. Oral explanations or instructions shall not be binding unless reduced to writing in the form of a written addendum
Vendors are encouraged to carefully examine the site of the work and all related documents to become fully informed of the conditions to be encountered and the character of work to be performed. Vendors are required to collect all necessary data and information required for developing its proposal.
During the conference the University will answer questions as best as possible but only to the extent that the information is available and maintained by FAU. Additional documentation may be provided during the conference. Only one set of documents per company will be provided.
All vendors attending the conference are requested to pre-register by July 25 @ 3:00 PM by e-mailing a confirmation notice with the company name, persons attending, phone and fax numbers to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Vendors not registering for the conference in advance can still attend the conference. Non-registered vendors may not receive any additional documentation passed out on the day of the conference if there are insufficient copies for distribution. Also, the University is not responsible for information missed by vendors arriving late or missing the conference nor is the University required to repeat or revisit areas already covered.
No special consideration shall be given after proposals are opened because of Proposer's failure to be knowledgeable of all conditions existing at the site. By submitting a proposal, Proposer covenants and agrees that they have satisfied themselves, from their own investigation, of the conditions to be met; that they fully understand their obligations; and that they may not make any claim, or have right to cancellation or relief, because of any misunderstanding or lack of information.
Evaluation Process and Award:
The University’s sole point of contact for all matters relating to this ITN is
Carolyn Bethmann, Assistant Director of Purchasing
Phone No: 561-297-2608
Proposals will be evaluated by an ITN Evaluation Committee to determine which written responses most closely adhere to the ITN requirements and whose proposals best address the University’s priorities, as previously stated. The committee members may consist of University Faculty, Staff, Students and designated experts. The short list may be comprised of as few as a single vendor or as many as all vendors. Those selected for the short list will continue in the evaluation process, which may involve at the University’s sole and absolute discretion site visits, vendor presentations, vendor management team interviews, negotiations, and evaluation of the vendor’s best and final offer.
The determination of the vendors selected for the short list with which negotiations may continue will be based on evaluation of the written response submitted. There will be no opportunity for presentations at this stage. Any response that is not complete, detailed, and accurate, or that indicates the company prefers to defer providing complete details until a later stage in the process, may be declared non-responsive at the University’s discretion and rejected without further evaluation.
The Committee may meet with the short-listed vendors to discuss their capabilities, plans for servicing FAU and satisfying FAU’s requirements. After negotiations, if any, have been completed, the short-listed vendors will be given a deadline for submission of “best and final” offers (BAFOs). BAFOs may not be withdrawn within 90 days of submission and Vendors will not be allowed to make further adjustments to their offer, except to respond to requests for clarification from the Committee. The recommendation of the Evaluation Committee will be based upon the initial written response, interviews (if any), negotiations (if any), and best and final offers.
The University reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to skip the short list process, to award this ITN in full or in part, or make no award at all, or cancel or modify this ITN at any time.
(Note: Florida Atlantic University reserves the right to cancel this solicitation and acquire the products and services contained within via a pre-existing agreement, such as State of Florida Contract, Cooperative Contract, etc. if it is determined to be in the best interest of the University.)
The University also reserves the right to award to another responsive and responsible Proposer in the event of vendor default, non-performance, non-compliance or similar issues affecting the University at any time throughout the development agreement and any renewal period.
Award shall be based upon a responsible Proposer whose proposal is responsive to the ITN, demonstrates a clear understanding of the priorities, and demonstrates the capabilities to perform satisfactorily based on service and price matters. FAU reserves the right in its sole and absolute discretion to select the proposal deemed to be in the best interests of the University.
Confidentiality: From the date of issuance of this ITN, until an award is made, the vendor must not make available or discuss its proposal, or any part thereof, with any employee or agent of the University, unless permitted by the Procurement Director, in writing, for purposes of clarification only, as set forth herein.
Any individual associated with the company participating in this ITN who contacts any other university employee and/or Evaluation Committee member regarding any aspect of this ITN, who attempts to discuss the ITN with any representative of FAU other than the person designated as the sole point of contact, whether such contact be in person, telephone, or through electronic or written correspondence, may be determined to have violated the terms and conditions of this solicitation. If that determination is made, any proposal received from such an individual OR their company may be rejected as non-responsive and not subject to evaluation. If there are any changes or additions to the Sole Point of Contact information at any time in the process, participating companies will be notified via an addendum to the ITN.
Questions regarding the ITN document and/or process should be submitted in the Q&A Board of this electronic sourcing system. No oral communications shall be considered as a change to the ITN. All postings referred to in this ITN will be posted electronically on the Purchasing website at http://www.fau.edu/purchasing/bid_info.php. . At all times it shall remain the responsibility of the company participating in the ITN to check the website for postings of short-lists and award decisions. No further notice will be given.
Posting of Recommended Awards:
The official bid/proposal recommended awards will be posted for review electronically and will remain posted for a period of 72 hours (excluding weekends and holidays). Failure to timely file a protest or failure to timely deliver the required bond or other security in accordance with the Board of Governors’ Regulations 18.002 and 18.003, and FAU Regulations 6.008 shall constitute a waiver of protest proceedings. Notice of bid awards will also be available electronically on the Purchasing website at: http://www.fau.edu/purchasing/bid_info.php
