A proposal is selected based on cumulative analysis; the total score is obtained by combining technical and financial attributes.

A two-stage procedure will be utilized in evaluating the proposals; the technical proposal (CV, P11, letter of interest) will be evaluated with a minimum pass requirement of 70% of the obtainable 100 points assigned for technical proposal. A proposal shall be rejected at this stage if it fails to achieve the minimum technical threshold of 70% of the obtainable score of 100 points prior to any price proposal being opened and compared. The financial proposal will be opened only for candidates whose technical proposal achieved the minimum technical threshold of 70% of the obtainable score of 100 points and are determined to be compliant. Non-compliant proposals will not be eligible for further consideration.

The total number of points (“maximum number of points”) which a candidate may obtain for its proposal is as follows:

Technical: 100 points (weight: 70%)

Financial: 100 points (weight: 30%)

Total number of points: 200 points


Evaluation of financial proposal:

In this methodology, the maximum number of points assigned to the financial proposal is allocated to the lowest price proposal. All other price proposals receive points in inverse proportion.

A formula is as follows:

p = y (µ/z)


p = points for the financial proposal being evaluated

y = maximum number of points for the financial proposal

µ = price of the lowest priced proposal

z = price of the proposal being evaluated

The contract shall be awarded to the proposal obtaining the overall highest score after adding the score of the technical proposal and the financial proposal.

Evaluation of technical proposal (CV, P11, letter of interest):

The technical proposal is evaluated and examined to determine its responsiveness and compliancy with the requirements specified in this solicitation documents. The quality of each technical proposal will be evaluated in accordance with the following technical evaluation criteria and the associated weighting (total possible value of 100 points):
