Summary
Equipment purchasing officials are often called on to purchase a wide variety of goods and services without the aid of prior experience or working knowledge of the products. This process becomes critical when the official is asked to purchase major products such as four wheel drive loaders, backhoe loaders, motor graders or other heavy equipment which often remain in use for several years. Experienced specification writers have developed numerous techniques to avoid the traditional "award going to the low bidder meeting specifications" method of purchasing. This Circular documents some of these techniques and how they can be used. They are presented as the five step method to successful specification writing. The basic steps include: (1) Understand Job Requirements; (2) Determine What's Most Important; (3) Evaluate Equipment On-The-Job; (4) Clearly State What Is To Be Purchased; and (5) Identify the Bid Award Criteria
