How are bids evaluated?
Bids usually go through two evaluation steps:
1. Checklist of required inclusions requested in RFP.
2. Evaluation against weighted criteria.

Weighted criteria can usually be broken down into key areas: planning/execution approach, capabilities/experience and price; the RFP usually lists the weighted criteria, including relative weightings. The evaluation criteria will be different for each project, so do not rely on past RFPs to determine your potential for success.

Final award is determined on final scores in both steps of the evaluation process.
