We support clients with engineering input into the tendering process. Tribe Engineering has experience writing technical contract schedules, creating technical tender scoring schemes and evaluating tenders. We can support your commercial team in market/supplier engagement through to supplier selection.
What we offer:
Creation of specifications
We can assist your commercial and engineering teams in generating enquiry specifications and purchase specifications for assets/equipment and services to support them. We use a process of requirements elicitation and capture from key stakeholders and use industry benchmarking to ensure that what you buy is what you intended.
Market and supplier engagement
Identifying the correct suppliers for a tender is key. Identifying and then engaging with prospective suppliers at an early stage can prevent businesses wasting time and money on abortive tenders and ensure that suppliers understand exactly what the purchaser intends to buy and therefore provides a compliant tender submission. Tribe Engineering have assisted many customers in this process and provides third party overview of the process if required.
Review and scoring of tender submissions
Time spent on ensuring that a tender scoring scheme is suitable and easily understandable is rarely time wasted. We have experience producing tender scoring schemes that ensure that you get the best outcome in terms of the balance between commercial and engineering requirements.
Ensuring that you have an objective assessment of tender submissions is also rarely wasted time or effort. Most businesses have competing requirements for any purchase. having an independent third party such as Tribe Engineering score or review the scoring of tender submissions ensures that you get the best for your whole business, not just for the individual functions.
Contract conditions and schedules
Tribe Engineering can assist your commercial and legal teams with the technical content of contracts, contract schedules and supporting documents. It is often the best practice to separate the technical schedules from the commercial contractual terms in order for suppliers to understand not just what your want delivered, but how you want it delivered and when.
Independent tender document assessment
We can provide independent assessment of your tender documents such as pre-qualification questionnaires, ITTs and specifications to ensure that both your business and your prospective suppliers know exactly what the tender is about and prevent costly re-submissions, abortive tenders and non-compliant bids.
