    Sec. 5. Evaluation Selection Procedure. A political
subdivision shall, unless it has a satisfactory relationship
for services with one or more firms, evaluate the firms
submitting letters of interest, taking into account
qualifications, ability of professional personnel, past record
and experience, performance data on file, willingness to meet
time and budget requirements, location, workload of the firm,
and such other qualifications-based factors as the political
subdivision may determine in writing are applicable. The
political subdivision may conduct discussions with and require
public presentations by firms deemed to be the most qualified
regarding their qualifications, approach to the project, and
ability to furnish the required services. In no case shall a
political subdivision, prior to selecting a firm for
negotiation under Section 7, seek formal or informal submission
of verbal or written estimates of costs or proposals in terms
of dollars, hours required, percentage of construction cost, or
any other measure of compensation.
