The Howard Community College president designates the director of procurement to implement the process for competitive sealed proposals as provided in §16-313 of the Education Article of the Annotated Code of Maryland.
Competitive sealed proposals may be used for procurements in the following categories:
A contract as a result of a competitive sealed proposals process will be approved by the board of trustees, after obtaining any approval required by law, and awarded to the responsible offeror who submits the proposal, or best and final offer, determined to be the most advantageous to the college considering the evaluation factors set forth in the request for proposals solicitation document.
The board of trustees may reject any and all proposals and readvertise for other offers.
