“An agency’s primary purpose is to serve their constituents in the most effective and efficient way possible. One of the key components of the success of any agency is a fair, equitable and transparent Procurement process which results in the best possible solutions, products, and services.” (NGIP The Institute for Public Procurement, White Paper “We ‘No Bid’ and I’ll tell you why.”, Part one in a series, 2013)
"The best way to maintain the trust of the public is to have a process that , though it may include some subjectivity, is still one that is difficult to influence."..."The absence of a formal process to incorporate non-price criteria into the final evaluation and selection increases the chances of subjecting your selection committee to scrutiny resulting from charges that the process was not as “fair” as it should have been." ("Best Practices For Use of Best Value Selections" – A joint Publication of Associated General Contractors of America and National Association of State Facilities Administrators, 2006)
“There is currently no standard method for scoring technical proposals in a best value selection. If agencies cannot justify the “value” added to the project in terms of a trade-off with additional costs, those tendering offers will justifiably file protests." (Leadership & Management in Engineering, 3(3), "Engineering the procurement phase to achieve the best value" )
