RFP / RFQ Development and Management
On large scale projects, Amherst is usually asked to develop a Request for Proposal or Request for Quotation on turn key projects that require complete or near complete reconstruction. In many cases a restoration contractor is retrained to perform the initial emergency response that later leads into reconstruction. In doing so the contractor maintains control over all aspects of the reconstruction including the architectural and engineering disciplines essentially dictating control over the reconstruction including the costs. By developing an RFP/RFQ both the property owner, as well as, an insurer can control costs and avoid potential conflict later in the project by placing the project out to competitive bid.
