In contrast to the applicable procurement provisions under Chapter 15 of LOU, a relative weighting must be given to the evaluation criteria.
The weighting may be expressed as a range with an appropriate maximum spread. For example, if the criteria are ‘quality’ and ‘price’, the weighting may be set at 70 per cent and 30 per cent respectively. If the weighting of criteria is specified as a range, the range may be, for example, a spread between 60–70 per cent and 30–40 per cent respectively. Where, in the opinion of the contracting authority, it is not possible to specify the weighting of the various criteria, they shall be listed in descending order of importance.
