A-E services may include site investigations, topographic surveys, geodetic surveys, hydrographic surveys, aerial surveying, and tidal studies meeting National Ocean Service standards, development of LTMS for Dredged Material Placement Areas, preparation of plans and specifications and cost estimates for construction of minor projects and preparation of reports. 3. SELECTION CRITERIA: The selection criteria for this particular project are listed below in descending order of importance (first by major criterion and then by each sub-criterion). Criteria A-F are primary. Criteria G-H are secondary and will only be used as quote mark tie-breakers quote mark among firms that are essentially technically equal. A.
