Brief Name of EOI: Short Listing of Consultants for Consultancy Services for implementation of Delhi MRTS Project Phase-IV
DMRC’s brief scope for the consultant can be viewed here. They will now issue a request for proposal (RFP) to the 3 shortlisted bidders and evaluate their technical & financial proposals – all of which I estimate will take a good 9-12 months.
Final selection of the consultant will be made based on the 80:20 Quality and Cost Based Selection (QCBS) with 80% weightage on technical score and 20% weightage on financial score.
