RFPs, RFQs, Bids

The Boston Redevelopment Authority occasionally hires outside consultants or firms to provide commodities or services to assist the agency in its work.These outside teams are hired through competitive Requests for Qualifications (RFQs), Requests for Proposals (RFPs), and a public bidding process.

RFQs and RFPs are issued through a standard procedure which involves drafting, approval for distribution by the BRA Board, distribution through newspapers and the BRA website, the formation of proponent shortlists, interviews, selection of the most qualified proponent, and final approval of the selected proponent by the BRA board.

Bids are approved and drafted in a similar manner to RFPs and RFQs,However, contracts are awarded to the "lowest responsible and eligible bidder", based on competitive bids publicly opened and read in accordance with Massachusetts General Law (c.149 and c.30, s.39M).
