General Information

Solicitation Information

VTA solicitations are either Requests for Proposals (RFP), or Invitations for Bids (IFB). VTA sends RFPs to obtain proposals when a contract is competitively negotiated, with price and other factors evaluated to determine the proposal offering the best value to VTA. RFPs are typically for Professional Services. An IFB is used to obtain bids when a contract is competitively bid. The contract is awarded to the responsible and responsive bidder submitting the lowest bid. IFBs are usually for services such as construction, goods, supplies and equipment, and general services.
