TZC Procurement: Understanding the Process
When TZC needs to find subcontractors, it looks to the TZC Vendor Database for help. When a subcontract scope has been defined, the TZC Vendor Database is queried for firms that provide the required scope.
These firms are apprised by email of the upcoming opportunity and, at times, requested to provide additional information to help TZC understand the capabilities of the firm. Based on this information, TZC develops a shortlist of bidders for the opportunity who will provide proposals/quotes for the work. TZC awards contracts based on best value, and only to firms that meet DBE Subcontract Goal requirements.
