Professional Services Bids
In some cases, a Request for Proposals (RFP) may be utilized for the procurement of specialized professional services. Similar to bids, the township publishes a newspaper advertisement notifying potential vendors of the type of services required. RFP packets will be distributed to interested parties upon request.
Request for Proposals
Similar to bids, RFP’s are opened and read aloud at the date, time and location specified in the advertisement. One main difference in the evaluation of RFP’s compared to bids is that with an RFP, evaluations can be made considering price and other factors. Like bids, RFP’s are analyzed and submitted to the Plainsboro Township Committee for award with a recommendation from township staff.
