Any offer proposing a per diem rate that falls between the "Median" minus 30% and the "Median" plus 30% for a specific Category and Level of Expertise within a Region and Metropolitan Area will be considered financially responsive and recommended for the issuance of a standing offer. The "Median" will be calculated based on the per diem rates submitted by all bidders for that Category, Level, Region, and Metropolitan area. A "Median" is the middle offer in a set of offers whereby half the offers are greater and half are lower. For example in the following set of numbers: 100, 150, 200, 400, 900, the median would be 200, while the median minus 30% would be 140 and the median plus 30% would be 260. In the following set of numbers: 100, 150, 200, 300, 400, 900, the median would be 250, while the median minus 30% would be 175 and the median plus 30% would be 325.
