At the Tender Documentation stage, we provide advice on the procurement strategy and selection of tenderers. We also review and scrutinise all Tender Documentation to ensure it is co-ordinated and reflects the latest design options. It is used to prepare a Pre-Tender Estimate, which is then reconciled against the project budget and contingencies are adjusted accordingly, with careful consideration given to market conditions and the project’s status.
The Pre-Tender Estimate is also used to compare and assess the received tenders for the project. Our assessment includes checking for arithmetical errors; any qualifications and exclusions are identified for tender comparisons and a Tender Evaluation Report is prepared. We also provide assistance with the assessment and recommendation of the preferred tender if required and can assist with tender interview and referee verifications.
