Hosting a Bidder Conference

Jen and Ty agreed to meet with each of the proposed bidders to discuss the RFP, the project, and to answer any questions the bidders may have. The conferences were held on a preset date, as detailed in the RFP, and each bidder had the opportunity to schedule a 40-minute session with Jen and Ty. This allowed the vendor to clarify any issues and to gather as much detail as possible to create the proposal that he or she believed would be most valuable to the buyer.

A bidder conference was allowed for both the architectural and the marketing procurement processes. During the marketing bidder conferences, Jen and Ty relied on Jeff s marketing experience to help lead the conversation and to answer vendor questions.

A bidder conference was not needed for the procurement of the fish and birds. Jen and Ty did allow the bidders to call them to clarify any questions on the procured items. Only one bidder for the wildlife called with a question: "How many female rainbow trout would the project require?"
