Will there be a formal bid opening?
Answer: Yes the proposals will be opened at 10 am on February 25, 2020. However, there will be no clear low price proposal at that time because those proposed prices will be put into a spreadsheet to analyze the proposed price structure given the past year's pulls per location. That analysis will take time and is not the sole determining factor of the contractor selected as the proposals of qualifications will also be ranked and selected contractors will be interviewed prior to a contractor being selected.
