RCI announces position on procurement
RCI Inc. President Arthur "Chip" Ward last week announced RCI's position on public roofing project procurement.
RCI believes group-purchasing agencies, "buy boards" and other similar purchasing models should not be used in any type of building construction, remediation or rehabilitation because they are not transparent, do not provide a competitive bid situation and may not ensure compliance with the minimum requirements of the codes. It believes independent consulting and competitive bidding are more likely to meet these objectives and conserve the taxpayer/stakeholder assets.
RCI maintains that the public is best served by a procurement process that meets the unique and specific requirements inherent in each individual project and contract. RCI’s position is that all public work and taxpayer-funded projects clearly should adhere to all applicable procurement regulations, maintain the highest levels of transparency and value, and comply with certain principles.
