The Town of West New York adopted the New Jersey State Comptroller’s recommended, “Best Practices”, procedures for awarding professional service contracts.
Donald Scarinci, Partner of Scarinci Hollenbeck explains Best Practices that the New Jersey Office of the State Comptroller recommends when municipalities award public contracts.
The key elements in “Best Practices are:
1. Make the pool of contractors as expansive as possible.
2. The statement of work should be as clear as possible.
3. The proposals should be analyzed by evaluation criteria that is set in advance and made known to the contractors before the proposals are submitted.
4. An evaluation committee should use the criteria they establish to evaluate the proposals and make recommendations for the award of the contract.
