Proposal Evaluation

How can buyers evaluate proposals from sellers in response to an RFP? What factors might they consider – (please list some criteria)? Should price typically be the primary consideration trumping all others when choosing one proposal over the others (i.e should the lowest bid typically be accepted regardless of other favorable provisions of the proposal)? Provide an example or examples to illustrate your perspective on this. What is a “pre-bid conference” and how can it help lead to better proposals from ‘sellers?’
