Informal tabulations of bids are available at www.tucsonprocurement.com approximately two days after bid opening. The final tabulation will be posted after award. Bid results are not given out over the telephone.
Tabulations are not available for proposals. Bids proposals and Statements of Qualifications are public information and, therefore, may be inspected AFTER the award by making an appointment with Procurement.
All formal bids and proposals are evaluated by the Business Services Director or the designated representative, as well as the using department. For bids, the award is made to the lowest responsive and responsible bidder meeting specifications.
For proposals, the award is made to the offeror whose proposal is deemed most advantageous to the City based upon the evaluation criteria.
For Statements of Qualifications, the award is made to the most qualified firm with whom the City is able to negotiate a satisfactory contract.
Prior to formal award, bids proposals are not available for public inspection. After the award has been made, a purchase order will be issued to the successful bidder/offeror.
