A new week

Last week we focused on construction projects as a whole.

We did this by introducing you to a definition of a construction project, described the role of the client on a construction project, produced a project brief, introduced construction procurement routes and provided an overview of how the main routes work. We then linked procurement selection to the appropriate choice of a standard form of contract.

This week we will look at:

  • Tendering activities including preliminary tender inquiry stage, invitation to tender, tender assessment and contract award
  • Tendering strategies including single stage selective tendering, two-stage selective tendering, negotiated tendering and open tendering
