  1. To answer the question you take the lowest bid and divide each bid received by the lowest bid and then multiply the result by 20. This will give the lowest bidding agency a total of 20 points and all others will be based on how close the bid is to the lowest. (Example lowest bid is $50k, bid looking at is $75k ($50k/$75k x 20 = 13.40)).
