All qualification submittals will be evaluated in accordance with applicable Hall County rules, regulations, and laws. Evaluation of firms submitting statements of qualification for this project will be based on qualifications, experience, and performance on past projects along with references.
This bid will be evaluated using a multi-step process. The first step is to evaluate the “qualification” submissions. Factors to be considered in the evaluation include: qualifications of the professional staff, experience on similar services, performance on past contracts, project approach, schedule and references for similar contracts. This step will result in a “short list of qualified firms”. After the “short list” is compiled, the second step is to schedule interviews of the “short listed” firms, if necessary. The fee schedule shall be provided with the proposal submission in a separate, sealed envelope, for consideration at the interview phase of “short listed” firms.
A Bid Bond will not be required with proposal submission. The successful bidder shall be required to provide a Payment Bond and a Performance Bond, each in an amount not less than 100% of the total bid amount, at the signing of the contract. Successful bidder will be required to provide insurance in the amount of at least ($1,000,000.00) one million dollars as required by paragraph 17 of the “terms and conditions” of these documents.
Your submittal must have a signature in its “original form”. Hall County suggests this is provided on “Introductory Letter”. Firms should submit six (6) copies of qualifications one (1) which should be marked as ‘Original’ and five (5) marked as ‘Copy’.
Proposals that do not clearly outline responses to each criterion may be eliminated from further consideration. Failure to sign your proposal in the ‘Original’ transmittal letter will force your proposal to be declared as ‘non-responsive’ and not be considered for award.
No bid may be withdrawn for a period of sixty (60) days after time has been called on the date of opening.
The County reserves the right to retain all proposals submitted and use any idea(s) in a proposal regardless of whether that proposal is selected. The Commissioners reserve the right to reject any or all bids and to waive technicalities and informalities.
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 proposal may be rejected by the County for any reason without liability on part of the County to the Undersigned Bidder.
