*SELECTION PROCESS FOR AWARDS TO QUALIFYING APPRAISER:
When the Land Division needs an appraiser, a RAP solicitation with details of the assignment will be sent by email to each qualified appraiser who has indicated it can provide the appropriate service(s). Qualified appraisers wishing to respond to that solicitation may then submit their bids within the specified time period.
LAND DIVISION'S SELECTION COMMITTEE will evaluate the bids, and then offer a contract to the appraiser that offers the "best value" to the State. “‘Best value’ means the most advantageous offer determined by evaluating and comparing all relevant criteria in addition to price so that the offer meeting the overall combination that best serves the State is selected. These criteria may include, in addition to others, the total cost of ownership, performance history of the vendor, quality of goods, services, or construction, delivery and proposed technical performance.” From: §3-122-1, Hawaii Administrative Rules.
The relevant criteria evaluated and compared by the Selection Committee are as follows:
1) Experience and professional qualifications relevant to the appraisal type;
2) Past performance on appraisals of similar nature for public agencies or private industry, including corrective actions and other responses to notices of deficiencies; capacity to accomplish the work in the required time. Past performance includes the ability to work cooperatively with the client;
3) Bid amount in comparison to other firms;
4) Other criteria as determined by the Department.
Appraisers will be evaluated on the basis of their submitted bid AND the information contained in their SOQs. The DLNR reserves the right to cancel any RAP if it is deemed to be in the best interest of the State.
