Answer and Explanation:

The Correct Answer is D.

Proposal evaluation techniques and independent estimates are techniques to evaluate bids and not to make sure the vendor understands the scope of work. Advertising is the technique used to invite vendors to obtain the scope of work and place their bids, but this also does not make sure that they properly understand the scope of work. The only way to make sure that the vendors understand the scope of work properly is to hold bidder conferences.
