Comparing Bids

  • Require all bids are on a CSI 16-Division Estimate. This is the best way to compare them apples to apples. Learn more here https://www.csiresources.org/home
  • Start with the Exclusions Page. Learn who is excluding what and why. Then work with them all to either include the item or change it to an allowance amount that everyone agrees to.
  • Vet all the Allowances. Work with everyone to agree on prices for them all to level out the playing field.
  • Finally, review each division across all bids to determine who is most inclusive and fits your budget.
