Process for Unsolicited Proposals

Unsolicited Proposals can be a valuable means for DART to obtain innovative or unique supplies, methods, or approaches from outside sources to accomplish DART's mission.

As a public entity, DART has an obligation to act as a good steward of public funds. Laws and regulations require DART to seek full and open competition for most procurement and contracting opportunities. This process is intended to facilitate, not impede, the proper receipt and evaluation of Unsolicited Proposals while preserving the integrity of the procurement process and conforming to applicable laws.
