  Q:04/25/12
R:05/02/12

Plan Sheet / Specification Reference= Special Provisions Section 2-1.02 "DISABLED VETERAN BUSINESS ENTERPRISE".


Question = Under the quoted section, the subsection entitled "Incentive Evaluation", second paragraph, attached, incorrectly states:"The DVBE incentive is a reduction, for bid comparison only, in the total bid submitted by the lesser of: 1. Percentage of DVBE achievement, rounded to 2 decimal places, of the verified total bid of the low bidder. 2. 5 percent of the verified total bid of the low bidder. 3. $250,000.
In reality the DGS regulations clearly state, and illustrate with examples, that the bidders other than the low bidder will have their bids reduced by their own DVBE percentage achievement, NOT THE PERCENTAGE ACHIEVED BY THE LOW BIDDER.

 

  • The bids are reduced by their own DVBE percentage. Please bid per the current contract documents.
