This has been happening for decades. Those offerors who choose to abuse the system to their advantage will find a way to do it and then justify the decision. Any "extra" factor as part of a submittal should be thrown out and never used as part of the process of selection....
Could it not be considered a bribe..?

Worse. I've been involved in two cases where cities simply went through the motions of objectivity, then hired the firm they favored to begin with. These were architectural and planning projects, and in one case, the city selected a competitor, who then used our firm's planning scheme whole-cloth for the urban renewal project, obviously with the city's blessing. Our developer partner, wishing to do business with this jurisdiction in future, lacked the will to pursue legal remedy. We lacked either time or resources.

maybe if people would challenge these situations of favoritism the owners would be more hesitant not to consider them more seriously if they know you have the courage to challenge them. I am sure they depend on you not challenging them.
i have had experience with a similar situation and the next time my proposal was accepted. there were no repercussions.

I have had the same experience....a complicated submission that is scored with specifically identified criteria... only to have one reviewer give 100% of available credit and another 0% on specific items.... sounds makes it look like an act of congress....LOL. However, it is not realistic to expect complete objectivity. Business is still about people, trust and confidence... unless there is overt corruption. It is too late to win many projects when the RFP hits the streets without prior relationship building. We have found that in many cases, good clients take 3-5 years to develop/win. The ones that are easy, too often, don't pay, poor managers, can't be trusted and/or are not loyal.

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this blog.
It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's tough to get that "perfect balance" between superb
usability and visual appearance. I must say you have done a awesome
job with this. Additionally, the blog loads very fast for me on
Firefox. Excellent Blog!
