A. When the Chief Procurement Officer determines in writing that the use of competitive sealed bidding is either not practicable or not advantageous to the Borough, a contract may be entered into by use of the competitive sealed proposals method. Competitive sealed proposals may be used for construction management at-risk contracts.
B. Proposals shall be solicited through a request for proposals.
D. A register of proposals shall be prepared containing the name of each offeror, the number of modifications received, if any, and a description sufficient to identify the item offered.
E. The request for proposals shall state the relative importance of price and other evaluation factors.
F. As provided in the request for proposals, discussions may be conducted with responsible offerors who submit proposals determined to be reasonably susceptible of being selected for award for the purpose of clarification to assure full understanding of, and conformance to, the solicitation requirements. Offerors shall be accorded fair and equal treatment with respect to any opportunity for discussion and revision of proposals and such revisions may be permitted after submissions and prior to award for the purpose of obtaining best and final offers.
G. Award shall be made to the responsible offeror whose proposal is determined in writing to be the most advantageous to the Borough taking into consideration price and the evaluation factors set forth in the request for proposals. No other factors or criteria shall be used in the evaluation. The contract file shall contain the basis on which the award is made.
