Request for Proposal
SDOPM also may utilize a Request for Proposals (commonly referred to as an “RFP”) for requirements that preclude the use of a specification. A RFP is a competitive method of procurement whereby offerors are asked to submit proposals for the supply of goods and/or services in a format, which allows for the consideration of factors in addition to the price in the evaluation and award process. This method of solicitation is used when it is determined by SDOPM that the use of competitive sealed bidding is not practicable or is not advantageous to the State. The RFP solicits sealed price proposals from prospective vendors and seeks to obtain the “best value” for the State.
