Each selection committee member will use a scoring sheet (A-11:  Interview Process: Questions and Score Sheet) to rank the firms in each pre-determined criteria. Each member of the selection committee will evaluate each firm separately. Once all presentations/interviews are completed, the committee chairperson should use A-12:  Group Interview Evaluation Form to compile the individual score sheets from committee members. This system provides a documented record of the selection process and the committee’s decision.

Then, consensus of final ranking is achieved through discussion and agreement of the entire committee. It is recommended that the selection committee thoroughly discuss the evaluations and arrive at their decision by consensus rather than by majority vote. Usually, the firm with the highest scoring is deemed most qualified.
