The Sydney Tar Ponds Agency (STPA) has set out a framework to optimize economic benefits from the cleanup of the Tar Ponds

and Coke Ovens sites.

Local Economic Benefits constitute a major component of all bids with a 15-point weighting in the evaluation process. Submissions will be judged on quantifiable benefit targets.

A two-step model has been developed.

The process is as follows:

Step 1 - Interested Bidders are asked to submit a cost bid.The bid with the lowest Estimated Contract Price will receive 85 points. The bid with the next lowestEstimated Contract Price would receive a score that is inversely proportional to the lowest bid (lowest Estimated Contract Price/Estimated Contract Pricex 85). The bid with the third lowest Estimated Contract Price bid would receive a lower score pro-rated against the lowest Estimated Contract Price and so forth.STPA will reject bids with an Estimated Contract Price equal to or higher than the lowest compliant Estimated Contract Price +0.06 X lowest Estimated Contract Price.

Step 2 - In addition to the cost bid sheet, interested Bidders are required to submit local economic benefits worksheets employing the format used herein. To be submitted is a description of the physical location and operating characteristics of the responding enterprise with clear indication of the amount of work performed by Cape Breton-Mulgrave area, Nova Scotia, Canada or Foreign residents in its employ; a breakdown of the value of labour inputs for the tender in question, including Subcontractors by type or category and by origin, that is Cape Breton-Mulgrave, Nova Scotia, Canada or Foreign; and a breakdown of contributions to community calculated as a percentage of aggregate payroll for the twelve months immediately proceeding the date of submission of the bid as well as for the intended term of the Contract.
