    BASIS OF SELECTION
    
    Highest Combined Rating of Technical Merit and Price
    
    1. To be declared responsive, a bid must: 
    
    a) comply with all the requirements of the bid solicitation; and
    b) meet all mandatory criteria; and
    c) obtain the required minimum points specified for each criterion for the technical evaluation, and 
    d) obtain the required minimum of 497 points overall for the technical evaluation criteria which are subject to point rating. The rating is performed on a scale of 1096 points. 
    
    2. Bids not meeting (a) or (b) or (c) and (d) will be declared non-responsive. 
    
    3. The selection will be based on the highest responsive combined rating of technical merit and price. The ratio will be 70% for the technical merit and 30% for the price. 
    
    4. To establish the technical merit score, the overall technical score for each responsive bid will be determined as follows: total number of points obtained / maximum number of points available multiplied by the ratio of 70%.
    
    5. To establish the pricing score, each firm price or rate will be prorated against the lowest firm price or rate for each individual category of service. The ratio of 30% will be divided against the five (5) main category services as follows:
    
    21/30 - Bid Evaluation Value (BEV)
    1.5/30 - Option 1: Additional Telephone Surveys
    3/30 - Option 2: Additional Online Surveys

    3/30 - Option 4: Additional Minutes for Online Surveys
    
    6. For each responsive bid, the technical merit score and the pricing score will be added to determine its combined rating. 
    
    7. Neither the responsive bid obtaining the highest technical score nor the one with the lowest evaluated price will necessarily be accepted. The responsive bid with the highest combined rating of technical merit and price will be recommended for award of a contract.
