A Tool for Requesting and Evaluating Interpretive Display Proposals
One of the best ways to purchase interpretive exhibits is to use a "Request for Proposal." The three documents below were used to request and evaluate interpretive exhibit proposals. They were used to replace exhibits at Libby Dam. They could be adapted for use at other Corps of Engineers visitor centers.
- Contract Specification Examples
These files contain contract specifications for the design and construction of interpretive exhibits. They are an existing contract but made generic as much as possible for your use. Numerous contracts from around the Corps were looked at and the best of each was incorporated here. Although you may not need to use them verbatim, they contain valuable information concerning what you may need to include, what to be careful of and how to avoid potential problems.
