Selecting a Vendor

Jen and Ty read each of the proposals and bids supplied by the sellers. The bid for the wildlife was the easiest decision to make because it was driven solely by price. While all of the bidders that supplied a quote for the wildlife were close, Jen and Ty selected the vendor with the lowest price. All of the vendors guaranteed their fish and fowl to be healthy and disease-free.

The architectural selection process was not as clear because of the proposals involved. Ty assisted Jen in creating evaluation criteria to compare and contrast each proposal. Proposals were ranked according to the following specifications:

• Qualifications and experience of each firm

• Ability to address all issues in the provided statement of work

• Ability to fulfill the design and construction based on the determined timeline

• New ideas presented within the proposal

Based on this ranking of information, Jen selected an architectural firm to design and build the facility. Jen and Ty followed a similar approach in selecting the marketing vendor, but also involved Jeff Honeycutt to make the best decision.
