In January 2016, the 900 Worcester Street Committee recommended to the Wellesley Board of Selectmen that they reject all three responses (including the one submitted by Corbelis) to the RFP for 900 Worcester Street that were submitted in November 2015. In late March the Committee issued a new RFP for the project, giving respondents 30 days to submit new responses. The deadline for submissions was April 29, 2016.
Corbelis reviewed the new RFP issued by the Committee and determined that it could not reasonably expect, based on the changes made to the original RFP, a more favorable scoring or response by the Committee than it had received on the proposal the Committee had recently rejected. For this reason, Corbelis did not submit a response to the new RFP. However, Corbelis did send a letter to the Committee expressing its continued interest in the project should the Committee not receive an acceptable proposal as part of its new RFP process.
