Who Puts Qualifications First?

Tuesday, July 23, 2019

NSPE is looking for star organizations, both public and private, that make exemplary use of the qualifications-based selection process at the federal, state, and local levels. Each year, NSPE and the American Council of Engineering Companies present the QBS Awards to entities that procure engineering services through a process that emphasizes design firms’ technical competence rather than simply the lowest bid. Nominations for the 2019 QBS Awards must originate from an NSPE State Society, an ACEC Member Organization, a public or private entity, or an individual in the public or private sector. Self-nomination is not permitted. The deadline for nominations is Friday, August 30, 2019.

Please mail or email nominations to Charles Kim with ACEC at ckim@acec.org and Stephanie Hamilton with NSPE at shamilton@nspe.org. The QBS Award winner will receive a trophy and recognition during the ACEC Fall Conference in October 2019 at the Sheraton Grand Chicago. Travel and lodging expenses will be reimbursed by ACEC, subject to ACEC’s policies and as permitted by law.
