Overview

Winning contracts and evaluating tenders is essential to the continuing viability of any contractor / client.  It is no longer just about the price and accurate calculations.  Clients want an assurance that contractors fully understand their business, its needs and the specific job requirements.

Winning contracts means understanding the issues and requirements at the procurement stage plus the skills and ability to write the tender: not just to be successful but to increase profits as well. To receive good tenders, clients must provide meaningful contract documents for tenderers.

If you are new to tendering or wish to have a refresher, then this course is a must. You will learn the tendering process from the perspective of both client and contractor.
