We are opening bids for our first NEW TrUCK next week.
Any suggestions on an orde of what to do first.
Should we do 1 at a time, give everone a different proposal and go at it?
Someone suggested we let bidders draw numbers for a place and let them present 1 at a time.
What do you think?

Last time we opened bids on a pumper we opened the bids in the order they were received at the firehouse. The first packet we received got opened first and then we posted the bids on the board in the room so everyone could see the prices. We did not do any discussion of the bids while the salesmen were in the room.

The really big thing is like bigjim said.....just open it, give the $$$ amount and don't discuss it any further with the sales people there.
The committee or whoever has a lot of evaluating to do.
For the compares and evaluating the bids we take each bid and a seperate copy of the specs for each bid and go line by line- item by item. Check the exceptions. The bid that always gives me the willies is the bidder that says "we have no exceptions, we meet or exceed all the bid specs". That one gets the super fine tooth comb.
