The Selection Committee met today at noon with CDG/SEH/Moxie to review the revised proposal. The scope of work and time allocation was thoroughly re-examined. The new budget proposed is not to exceed $89,975. The lower cost was achieved by consolidating tasks, reducing depth of detail on a few selected items, and increasing use of online tools for engagement. Combined with the single-phase approach, CDG/SEH/Moxie have been able to reduce costs while maintaining a scope and services that will serve the Glencoe community well into the future.
