In keeping with CLASP's commitment to a fair and transparent evaluation of all bids, following is a summary of the bids received under RFP# 10-13, “SEAD Motor Awards Competition - Nominations Outreach,” as well as the basic rationale for the final selection.
This was a competitive solicitation, and technical and financial proposals were received from two organizations. While both bidders submitted strong proposals and were considered viable candidates for successful implementation of the project, the submission from Atkins Global was considered superior due primarily to the team’s extensive experience with motor manufacturers, experience with developing messaging and conducting industry outreach, and the comprehensiveness of the proposed methodology based on an understanding of the project requirements as stated in the RFP.
Proposals were evaluated according to pre-defined criteria regarding the proposed approach, methodology, and project execution plan, extent of experience in developing and successfully executing outreach and promotion campaigns, and cost projections in accordance with the RFP.
Proposals were scored based on a Quality and Cost Based System (QCBS) totaling 100 points, with 70 points allocated to the technical proposal evaluation and 30 points allocated to the financial proposal evaluation.
Final scores for the top two proposals are provided in the table below:
