Step 3 – Selecting Service Providers
After filing your 470, vendors have 28 days to respond with a bid. You then review the bids, select the winning vendor, and sign the appropriate contracts. Expect multiple bids and use a scoring matrix to evaluate them (see link to example below).
- Example scoring matrix: http://www.usac.org/_res/documents/sl/pdf/samples/Bid-Evaluation-Matrix.pdf
- For more information about this step: http://www.usac.org/sl/applicants/step03/default.aspx
- Ensure sufficient time is allocated during the 28 days for walk throughs if requested, RFP response review, and bid evaluation
