                    COMBINED QUALITY AND COST EVALUATION

The lowest evaluated Financial Proposal (Fm) will be given the maximum financial score (Sf) of
100.

The formula for calculating the financial scores (Sf) of all other Proposals is determined as
follows :

Sf = 100 x Fm/ F,

Where,

"Sf" is the financial score of the proposal under consideration;

"Fm" is the quoted price of the lowest evaluated Financial Proposal; and

"F" the quoted price of the proposal under consideration.

The technical score (St) for each responsive proposal will be as calculated by evaluation
committee as per selection criteria (point allocation) as given in ANNEXURE C

The weightage given to the Technical (T) and Financial (P) Proposals are:

T = 70 % and

P = 30 %

Proposals will be ranked according to their total (combined technical and financial) scores (S)
using the weights (T = the weight given to the Technical Proposal; P = the weight given to the
Financial Proposal) as following:

S = St x T% + Sf x P%.
