    In section H, the RFP limits answers in Section C to two pages maximum. Since section C asks for “detail” on 7 separate occasions, as well as “a comprehensive view/plan” on several other occasions, can the State either extend or abolish the page count or eliminate the requests for detail, since the page count makes it impossible to comply with the requirements?

    D.4.1 has evaluation criteria that is not part of the C section or any other part of the proposal. These deal mostly with past performance. Does the State require these to be answered (D.4.1 items I to o). If so is it appropriate to answer them in Section 2 of our response as outlined in Section E of the RFP?

    In order to provide the full detail of the technical solution we would like to submit an appendix that would have a complete discussion of the technical solution; this would be in much greater depth than we can supply in the responses to the questions that have been asked in Section C of the Solicitation.  Would the reviewers be amenable to this and read the appendix?
