Standard Bus Procurement Guidelines RFP

Abstract: This document outlines a request for proposals for a negotiated bus procurement contract. A request for proposals is generally used when the scope of Work or specification is less well-defined. In addition, this type of procurement may be used in cases where the vehicle involves “emerging” technology or there is a requirement to discuss warranty provisions or design considerations. This document was developed using a cross-section of representatives from the public and private sectors of the public transit industry for use by transit agencies.

Keywords: bus, request for proposals (RFP)

Overview: Many industries have standard forms of contracts for the acquisition of goods and services. Buyers and sellers in those industries become familiar and comfortable with those forms. The goal of creating a common method of contracting enables participants to focus, when necessary, on negotiating only those issues for which a departure from the accepted norm is necessary or desirable. This approach will save considerable time and effort for the parties to a particular transaction. It also permits new provisions or evolving best practices to be incorporated into the standard Contract for that industry efficiently and in a manner designed to benefit the entire industry. Finally, standardization leads to a consistency of interpretation that presumably should reduce the number of Contract disputes and result in better prices for both the public and private sectors.

How This Document is Organized

The outline has been created to facilitate the development of a bus package that is consistent throughout the industry, providing a uniform format for numbering and organizing such documents. The use of standard formats for commonly used procurement contracts will improve the ability of industry participants to prepare contracts that contain all necessary provisions and that facilitate the incorporation of best available practices.

The format for a bus Contract RFP is organized as follows:


  • The Notice of Request for Proposals (RFP) (Section 1) contains general information to prospective proposers regarding the RFP package and can also be used as notification of the RFP to the public or an advertisement of the procurement opportunity.

  • The Instructions to Proposers (Section 2) provides detailed requirements that proposers must follow in submitting their Proposal. This section also includes evaluation criteria and information of interest to the Proposer regarding Agency Contract award procedures.

  • The General Conditions (Section 3), once customized by each Agency, should contain the standard terms and conditions and should be modified only by language added in the Special Provisions section.

  • The Special Provisions (Section 4) should be customized to meet the Agency’s specific requirements for each individual project or Contract, as well as local and state requirements. The Special Provisions are intended to amend and supplement the General Conditions to meet the individual requirements of each project.

  • The Federal Requirements (Section 5) are detailed and should be removed when the project is not funded with federal funds.

  • The Technical Specifications (Section 6) are included and can be detached as a standalone document.

  • The Warranty Requirements (Section 7) include requirements to warrant the operation of the bus.

  • Quality Assurance (Section 8) covers manufacturing, inspection and acceptance procedures.

  • Forms and Certifications (Section 9) are submitted with the Proposal or the Proposal may be considered nonresponsive.

  • Contract (Section 10) will incorporate the surviving terms of the RFP, as well as the Contractor’s Proposal in a binding document to be executed by the Agency and successful Proposer within a designated time period following award. It should be inserted as Section 10.

  • Appendixes (Section 11).

It is understood that transit agencies will need to modify this document to reflect local and state rules, regulations and laws, and that they will insert the standard contract language that they have developed in the appropriate places in the document. However, modifications to the standard format should be made in a manner that will maintain the structural integrity of the document. The numbering of unused articles should be maintained and accompanied by the notations “not used” or “reserved.”

How to Use This Document

This document has been designed to be a “living” document and will be reviewed bi-annually to stay current with new or updated regulations, policies and technologies.

Items noted in brackets [example] are areas indicating Agency input and should be filled in accordingly. As this is living document, references to other sections in the document are noted by title only. All section titles are listed in the Table of Contents.

The Technical Specifications section is designed for multiple bus lengths and propulsion types. By selecting “Default,” a basic bus technical specification will be developed. In areas where there are alternatives to the default, the Agency may select “Alternative” instead.



NOTE: Selection of certain alternatives may present a conflict with other selections and should be carefully considered.
