PLTP Procurement: Understanding the Process
When PLTP needs to find subcontractors, it looks to the PLTP Vendor Database for help. When a subcontract scope has been defined, the Vendor Database is queried for firms that provide the required scope.
These firms are apprised by email of the upcoming opportunity and, at times, requested to provide additional information to help PLTP understand the capabilities of the firm. Based on this information, PLTP develops a shortlist of bidders for the opportunity who will provide proposals/quotes for the work. PLTP awards contracts based on best value, and only to firms that provide responsive bids.
