Comments:
The lowest priced bidder, Midwest Waste Services, scored last for technical scores, had no hospital based references, but can accommodate co-mingling of Potentially Infectious Medical Waste (PIMW). This company scored lower and was much weaker in areas such as providing a program plan for performing the required services, the ability to perform the requested services and fulfill any reporting requirements as reflected by technical training, education, general experience and specific experience in providing the requested services, compliance with RFP specifications, the proposed equipment and facilities currently available to perform the requested services or demonstrated to be available at the time the requested services are required. This firm also lacked favorable recommendations and references from current and former clients. The references that were given were customers of the trucking industry and other garbage hauling companies that used this company for transportation, rental of roll off boxes and special waste. Medical Waste Solution's strengths in providing the requested services far outweigh the weaknesses of Midwest Waste Services.
The University award process may be delayed up to thirty days as this award goes through a state approval process.
