This day long course will cover the information previously offered in MMO-6 and MMO-7.
Evaluation panels often qualify as public bodies - which are subject to FOIA's rules regarding public meetings. (In the 2001 opinion of Quality Towing, Inc. v. City of Myrtle Beach, the South Carolina Supreme Court concluded that an evaluation panel created by the Myrtle Beach's City Manager was a public body.) This course is designed to help you conduct a competitive sealed proposal, including the evaluation process, in compliance with FOIA's meeting rules.
Requests for procurement documents are routine. Vendors frequently object to the release of proprietary information. Government officials are governed by the Freedom of Information Act, Procurement Code, and Trade Secrets Act.
Parking is free and plentiful at this location. Please note that because Museum policy prohibits outside food and drink, no snacks or beverages will be provided by MMO. There is an onsite cafe located just outside of the meeting room where participants can purchase food and beverages if they wish.
