Widen your search. 6. – Tips for Public Sector Tendering Tendering is not an onerous and complex task. Many tender applications can be very straight-forward and painless – some can be as simple as providing a quote. Don't be put off by the paperwork.

14 Tendering When providing a tender response, ensure that you demonstrate and describe how you can fulfil the contract in your tender application. Contracts are awarded using the MEAT criteria – Most Economically Advantageous Tender, which aims to strike an appropriate balance between price and quality. Don’t be shy. 6. – Tips for Public Sector Tendering If there is a deadline – stick to it and provide all the mandatory material for your tender. Late tenders will not be accepted by the contracting authority – this is to protect the integrity of the process. Follow the rules and read carefully.

15 Tendering A supplier is entitled to ask questions relating to the tendering process at any time. During a tendering process you are also entitled to have any queries addressed, though a generic form of your question, and the response, has to be provided to all other parties in the process. Seek advice. 6. – Tips for Public Sector Tendering Ensure all requested information is attached and that the Pricing Schedule is complete. Provide sufficient information under each Criterion. Remember, the weighting of a Criterion is indicative of how important it is. Checklist.
