At the City of Taylor, we will be releasing an RFP to include additional mowing services.
In researching various methods of requesting costs per mowing area, I have come across the use of square footage, and acreage to define the scope of each area.
The number of mowing cycles or occurrences is then factored in the total costs, among other things (fuel, manhours, etc.)
Is there a "best practice" in the purchasing industry for defining the quantity of mowing by area size? (i.e. acreage or square footage).
