1. Put together a list of labor, materials, supplies and contingency funding that is required for your selected RFP. Create a basic budget for your project.

2. What contract and procurement methods (i.e. competitive, non-competitive) do you feel are appropriate to solicit goods and services for your project? (Hint- Chapter 6 in the textbook outlines some of the major methods.) Justify your selection. You can use more than one method depending on the needs of your project.

3. What criteria will you use in vendor selection? List at least three criteria you will use to make your final selections once you decided on the contract procurement method(s) you will use.

SECTION 1 – REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL
SERVICE DESIRED: Request For Proposal (RFP) 98-078 is to obtain the services of a Contractor for an annual contract
to provide carnival services for the Spokane Interstate Fair including, at a minimum, a fully operational carnival with
rides, shows, game concessions, novelty concessions, and a maximum of 5 food concession units.
CONTRACT TERM: The term of a contract resulting from this RFQ will commence on the date of execution by the
Parties and run through midnight December 31, 1998 and may be extended a maximum of four (4) additional times, in
one year increments, for a total possible Contract life of 5 years. It will be the sole option of the County to extend an offer
to renew a Contract for an additional one year term. Subsequent term periods would run from January 1 through midnight
December 31.
FAIR DATES: The fair dates for 1998 have been set for September 11th through 20th, 1998
SELECTION PROCESS: A recommendation committee will rank all proper submittals based on the attached weighted
evaluation criteria set forth in this packet. From these rankings either a recommendation to select the best firm based
upon qualifications and price will be made or a “short list” of leading candidates will be developed for the purpose of
interviews. Spokane County reserves the right to select a firm based solely on the written response to the evaluation
criteria. Spokane County will be the sole judge of the best qualified firm. Only complete submittals will be evaluated.
Proposers may or may not be interviewed and the County reserves the right to conduct interviews at its sole option.
INTERVIEWS: Interviews will be held at the sole option of the County. If interviews are conducted for short listed
candidates, firms should plan to have key personnel on their teams who will be assigned to work on the proposed project.
Short listed firms may be asked to provide supplemental or additional information for review by the Committee prior to
the conduct of the interviews. Previous clients may be contacted as part of the evaluation process.
Committee members will again use the weighted evaluation criteria to evaluate interview information and submit their
recommendation for selection to the Board of County Commissioners for approval.
SELECTION SCHEDULE: The following dates are based upon initial planning and should be considered tentative.
1. Evaluate proposals beginning the week of March 9, 1998
2. Interview finalists beginning the week of March 16, 1998
3. Selection of the successful firm by Board of County Commissioners the week of March 23, 1998
SELECTION COMMITTEE: The committee will be interested in learning how you have provided services of this type
and how you might handle this work. Structure your responses to make it easy for them to evaluate your professional
capabilities and experience.
Typically committees try to review all presentations at one sitting in order to facilitate continuity which helps improve the
consistency of the individual scoring. Due to the number of firms that usually respond and a limited amount of time
available for review, the committees have typically allocated approximately 25 minutes to study each submittal therefore
it is strongly recommended that you be concise and to the point.
Unnecessarily elaborate responses beyond that sufficient to present a complete and effective response are not desired and
may be construed as an indication of the offeror’s lack of cost consciousness. Unless specifically requested in the RFP,
elaborate art work, corporate brochures, lengthy narratives, expensive paper, specialized binding, and other extraneous
presentation materials are neither necessary nor desired.
SUBMITTAL: Submit response in six (6) copies (original and 5 copies). Responses shall be sealed in an opaque
February 20, 1998 Request For Proposal 98-078 Page 2 of 24
envelope or package which has been clearly marked in the upper left corner with the words “Request For Proposal”
followed by the firm name and address. In the lower left corner of the envelope or package write out the project number,
submittal date, and project title.
SUBMITTAL CONTENTS: The submittal response consists of the items listed in the “Contents Of Request for
Proposal” Section. Any material submitted for consideration must be incorporated in each response copy. A single set of
material will not be reviewed. Submissions will become part of the official records for this request for proposal and cannot
be returned.
SUBMITTAL DEADLINE: It is the sole responsibility of the respondent to ensure that their submittal is in the
possession of the Spokane County Purchasing Department by the appointed date and time. Spokane County shall assume
no responsibility for any delay in U.S., County, or any other mail service resulting in a submittal being received late by
the Purchasing Department.
SUBMITTAL REJECTION: Spokane County reserves the right to reject any or all Proposals, portions or parts thereof
and to waive all minor irregularities. Special attention will be directed to the qualifications of the Contractor when
considering awarding a contract.
SUBMITTAL FORMAT AND BINDING: Page size should be 8½” x 11″. Type size for text should be at least 10-
points. Data submitted should be bound in a single document. Please do not submit in 3 ring binder. Bulk must be kept
to an absolute minimum.
