Response Notes

Responsive to this request, for a request for proposal (RFP) there is no bid tabulation. If you were referring instead to the evaluation committee’s score/evaluation records, under MPIA GP § 4-344, which allows a custodian to deny inspection of confidential opinions, deliberations, advice or recommendations from one governmental employee or official to another for the purpose of assisting the latter in the decision-making function, we would be unable to release. These records reveal pre-decisional recommendations of the evaluation committee used to inform the award by the Purchasing Office, where release would be contrary to the public interest given its potential to inhibit full and frank discussion in the procurement process. No response to continue request related to proposals.
