Weighted Factor Breakdown:

Meeting Technical and Site Specifications Vendor is Well-Established within Montana Bid Judging Process
At minimum of five (5) district employees wil be used in the judging process.
Points awarded for Cost of Services will not be subjective but will be based on a fixed formula. The formula for awarding points for the factor of cost will be: Each Vendor’s Cost of Services points awarded = 60 * LPV / RV
Therefore, the lowest priced vendor will be awarded 60 points for the Cost of Services factor. All other vendors wil be awarded points based on their proximity in price to the lowest priced vendor. Example: A vendor with a bid twice as expensive as the lowest priced vendor will mathematically receive 30 points. The judges will weigh all factors other than Cost of Services on a five point scale, up to the maximum points available in each weighted factor. Example: for “Meeting Technical and Site Specifications”, judges will award either: 0, 5, 10 or the maximum 15 points.
