DoI Procurement Overview Improvements to Process Cindy McDonald Director Contracts and Program Management Construction Industry Forum 30 May 2013
Tier 1 Process Conducted a review of the tier one process to make it less cumbersome for Industry and to enable a quicker turnaround time.
Contractor Performance Reports (CPR’s) Review of the current CPR system to allow for the following: –Scoring change to 1-10 rather that the current 1-5. –More prescriptive –CPR’s to align to the assessment criteria and be more specific rather than the generic format that is currently being used. Internal mechanism put in place to ensure CPR’s are carried out after the completion of the contract.
Assessment Criteria Ensuring that the assessment criteria relates to the scope of work and RFT requirements and not generic questions. Make sure there are no duplications to questions or questions that can be interpreted in a different way.
Assessment Criteria What is best value for money? –It is not about selecting the successful respondent based on price alone, although price is one factor which is taken into consideration.
Assessment Criteria So what are we looking for when assessing tenders??? –Past Performance –Local Development and Value Add (LDVA) –Apprentices –Timeliness –Capacity –Innovation –Scope Specific
Tender Evaluation Team (TET) Implemented a team within the procurement unit to be involved in all Tier 4-6 tender assessments across all Regions. To conduct all debriefings from Tier 3 level. Assessments and awarding of contracts will be carried out sooner.
Debriefings To be carried out by the TET at Tier 3 and above level. Quicker timeframes to have them carried out. More consistency. More detail in the debriefing reports.
