Debriefing is the act of informing suppliers, contractors or service providers that were not selected during a particular procurement process, of the reasons why they were not selected. Debriefing can be done orally or in writing. It may be mandatory or at the request of the bidder.
The purpose of debriefing is to inform losing bidders of the strengths and weaknesses of their bid or proposal and the reasons why they were not selected. A debriefing can be done just before the contract is awarded (during the standstill period -the period of time between the contract award decision and the actual award of the contract), or after contract award. But this must be stipulated in the procurement rules.
Depending on the procurement rules, a debriefing should include:
- the selection criteria,
- the score of the losing bidder being debriefed,
- the reasons for the losing bidder’s score,
- the score of the selected bidder, and impotenzastop.it
- the name of the selected bidder.
