When it comes to the evaluation process of the tenders, a lot of weightage is given to the factors which are already emphasized by the organization in the initial stages. But when it comes to private sectors, they usually do not disclose the merits for finalizing or rejecting the tenders.
Tender evaluation process is usually a two-step process. The first steps involve in accessing the technical merits of the bidders, while the second stage is usually concerned with the financial aspect of the entire contract. It is also important to note that the government sectors, which are always under immense scrutiny, are unlikely to award any tender solely based on the low price of the bidders.
In this post, we will take a brief look at some of the tender evaluation criteria which may not be stated explicitly.
Be assured that competitive tendering usually does not work these days
If you are new to tender business, then you have assumptions about quoting low prices in order to win the tender. There are several factors which indicate that competitive tendering does not work these days. Competitive tendering compels the bidder to quote down the lowest prices. Now in order to extract the profit margins, a staggering compromise has to be done from the likes of quality of materials, labor quality, technical support, repair work and maintenance. Plus, the more scrutiny the organization is likely to face, the lesser they are eager to call for competitive tendering.
MEAT: - “Most economically advantageous Tender” is a term used to set aside the parameter of “Budget” as the key factor in awarding tender to any bidder. It consists a list of factors, which must be given relative weightage by the evaluators. These key factors may or may not be listed down explicitly by the organization, however, it is important for the bidder to know them. The factors include the likes of quality, accessibility, technical merits (and demerits), safety factors, social characteristics, environmental characteristics, innovative characteristics. However, the most important factor of all them is the timely delivery of the service or goods, or whatever the main goal listed in the tender.
Pre-requisites and the mandatory requirement
As mentioned earlier, the private organizations usually do not involve a specific set of pre-requisites and mandatory conditions. However, undisclosed preferences are always involved in the evaluation of tender. In our experience, we have found that having over-qualifications and over skills in both technical as well as administrative scenarios helps significantly in winning the contract.
