The instructions state that a Professional Services Questionnaire be submitted. There is a Legal Services Questionnaire also included in the bid documents. Is this Questionnaire required for submittal if the vendor is not an attorney?
SDUFFY on 10-Nov-2020 11:58:12 AM
There are three types of Questionnaires; The General Professional Services Questionnaire shall be used for all professional services except outside legal services and architecture, engineering, or survey projects. The Professional Legal Services Questionnaire shall be used for outside legal services. The Technical Evaluation Committee (TEC) Questionnaire shall be used for professional services related to architecture, engineering, or survey projects. The two questionnaires have been provided for you to select from. If the Legal Services Questionnaire applies to your firm then, do both. The descriptions above tell you how they apply and are different.
