The tendering process poses significant challenges for businesses, requiring careful consideration before deciding to engage in it. To streamline your decision-making process, it’s crucial to assess various factors.

Before diving into tender preparation, download and thoroughly review the documentation to understand the buyer’s requirements and specifications. Organise a meeting with key team members to evaluate mandatory criteria, such as ISO certification, project delivery, and insurance requirements.

Mandatory Criteria:

Analyse industry-specific mandatory criteria, incorporating them into your business objectives well in advance.

  1. Evaluation Criteria: Review and assess specified evaluation criteria, understanding the weighted percentages for each key area of your tender submission.
  2. Project Scope, Resources, and Timeframes: Evaluate the project scope, ensuring the availability of required resources and assessing your proposed methodology’s ability to meet specified timeframes.
  3. Price: Consider submitting a competitive price based on factors like methodology, resources, and project locations. Ensure the project is financially viable.
  4. Competitors: Identify the key competitors and research their methodologies and pricing. Attend tender meetings to gather information and assess your strengths against competitors.
  5. Risks and Opportunities: Evaluate risks related to safety, environment, contracts, resources, and finances. Create a Tender Risk Assessment Matrix to manage risks throughout the project.
  6. Contract Conditions: Early review of contract conditions is essential to identify terms that may pose challenges for your business.
