Description
Overview:

Highly skilled services that impact public safety, such as engineering services, are simply too critical to leave to the lowest bid. The selection process should be based upon expertise, qualifications, and the ability to perform the work to protect the interests and well-being of our citizens. Qualifications-based selection (QBS) is a procedure whereby a service provider is retained on the basis of qualifications, rather than price factors. This webinar will educate participants about the unique value and necessity of the QBS process.
 
Learning objectives:

What QBS is and how the process works
The legislative and regulatory requirements associated with QBS
The necessity of emphasizing qualifications over price
The value of QBS to clients, PEs, and the public
NSPE’s actions to promote and protect QBS
