Choice Facility Partners brings the very best to facilities services, with conscientious professionals who not only have outstanding products and services, but who have also taken the initiative to pre-qualify for cooperative purchasing. Choice Facility Partners researches needs in the marketplace, writes RFPs, solicits bids, evaluates proposals using quality control standards, thoroughly checks references, and then recommends contracts to the governing board of Harris County Department of Education (HCDE), which then awards the contracts. Criteria for selection includes price, reputation, quality, meeting stated need, past performance, impact on underutilized businesses, cost, and previous work with governmental agencies when deciding eligibility for cooperative purchasing. References are thoroughly checked before partners are awarded a contract. Once partners have been awarded a contract, they can display the Choice Facility Partners seal.
