How MP&F Won Convention Center Contract

Updated:

On February 28, 2008, the Metro Development and Housing Agency (MDHA) put out a Request for Proposals (RFP) for a public relations services for Nashville's proposed convention center.

That's the same day that a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) went out from Nashville's airport authority for a separate PR contract.

MDHA evaluators scored eight applicants on five categories, including "cost of services."

Evaluators gave McNeely, Pigott & Fox's proposal an average 94.3.

Its closest competitor -- Dye, Van Mol & Lawrence -- was just one point back with an average of 93.3.

But get this: McNeely quoted its highest rates at $300 an hour, compared to Dye Van Mol's $155.

Yet, when evaluating costs, evaluators gave it almost the same score: 18.3 for Dye Van Mol, 16.3 for McNeely.
