A proposal review panel made up of members of SACOG and department staff from our member cities and counties will evaluate the proposals.
Upon receipt of the proposals, a technical evaluation will be performed. The review panel will evaluate each proposal in accordance with the criteria listed in the "Evaluation Criteria" section. Proposers may be telephoned and asked for further information, if necessary. Previous clients may also be called.
The review panel may request oral interviews from the top candidates to provide additional input in the evaluation process.
The panel will make recommendations to the SACOG Executive Director on the basis of the proposal, oral interview when held, and reference check. SACOG reserves the right to select a consultant based solely on written proposals and not convene oral interviews. In determining which proposal is most advantageous, SACOG will award the contract to the proposer whose proposal offers the best value.
