Proposal Process and Forms

RFPs must comply fully with the requirements detailed in the application

Threshold Review:

Reviewers will determine whether each Applicant meets the minimum criteria for review of their proposal, including:

  • Evidence of good standing with the Indiana Secretary of State; and
  • Evidence of financial soundness, as determined by NWICA in its sole discretion
  • Submission of all required Proposal components and Attachments

Proposals that do not meet one or more of these criteria may be eliminated from consideration.

Incomplete applications, applications containing errors or inconsistencies, lacking required sections, or other process errors or deficiencies, may constitute cause for rejection. NWICA may request clarification or additional information from the applicant at any point during the application process.

Based on the results of our evaluation, the qualifying proposals determined to be the most advantageous to NWICA may be selected for further action.  Successful applicants shall be required to enter into a written agreement with the NWICA and comply with all requirements detailed in the Service Definition(s), RFP materials and subsequent contract document(s).  However if NWICA decides that no proposal is sufficiently advantageous to NWICA, then NWICA MAY take whatever action is deemed necessary to fulfill its needs.  If, for any reason, a proposal is selected but it is not possible for NWICA to consummate a contract with the Applicant, NWICA may begin contract preparation with another quality Applicant or determine that no such alternate proposal exists.

Applicants will be notified in writing, by mail or email, of NWICA’s decision.
