ABOUT THIS DOCUMENT
The City of Derby, Kansas is requesting submission of proposals from all parties wishing to be considered for consulting services related to updating the City of Derby’s Parks Master Plan. This document is a Request for Proposals. It differs from a Request for Bids/Quotations in that the City is inviting proposals for professional services that are most advantageous to Derby, in Derby’s sole discretion. This is not a bid/quotation meeting firm specifications for the lowest price, and as such, the lowest price proposed will not guarantee an award recommendation. Competitive Sealed Proposals will be evaluated based upon criteria formulated around the most important features of the service, of which quality, references, availability or capability, may be overriding factors.
