Section: Request for qualifications; selection of qualified vendors
a. A contracting unit which intends to enter into a contract with a vendor pursuant to the provisions of this amendatory and supplementary act shall issue a request for qualifications of interested vendors. The request for qualifications shall include a general description of the resource recovery services required by the contracting unit, the minimum acceptable qualifications to be possessed by a vendor proposing to enter into a contract for the provision of these services, and the date by which vendors must submit their qualifications. In addition to all other factors bearing on qualifications, the contracting unit shall consider the reputation and experience of the vendor, and may consider information which might result in debarment or suspension of a vendor from State contracting, and may disqualify a vendor if the vendor has been debarred or suspended by any State agency. The request for qualifications shall be published in at least one appropriate professional or trade journal, and in at least one newspaper of general circulation in the jurisdiction which would be served under the terms of the proposed contract.
b. After reviewing the qualifications submitted by vendors pursuant to subsection a. of this section, the contracting unit shall establish a list of qualified vendors, which shall include the criteria applied by the contracting unit in selecting the qualified vendors, and shall publish the list in the same publications in which the requests for qualifications were published pursuant to subsection a. of this section. Any vendor designated by a contracting unit as a qualified vendor shall be a person or party financially, technically and administratively capable of undertaking the design, financing, construction, operation, or maintenance, or any combination thereof, of a resource recovery facility, or for providing resource recovery services.
