View Section III to determine the quality requirements for Supply Contracts and Service Contracts.

In Section III Quality Requirements, it is not necessary to repeat the requirements included in your purchase description or scope of services ( Section II ), but you should reference them as shown below. You should also include in this section your quality requirements relating to vendor qualifications. Make your requirements as stringent as necessary, but do not unduly limit competition. For example, when bidding a golf course operations and maintenance contract, you will probably require that vendors have experience operating a golf course, but it may not be necessary for vendors to have operated a municipal golf course. In that case, do not include municipal experience as part of your quality requirements. Your quality requirements should address those vendor qualifications that you consider essential to the contract.
