First of let us learn what are tenders. Tender is the process of making an offer, bid or proposal, expressing interest in response to an invitation or solicitation of an offer. Organizations look for other companies to respond to a specific need, such as the provision of goods and services, and select the offer or the other offer that suits your needs and offers the best value.
Bidding documents request and referred to as tenders, requests for quotation (RTF), Request for Proposal (RFP) Scheme etc. that is required, i.e. what the needs of the organization applying for. These documents also describe the particular requirements, criteria, and instructions that should be followed. Future bids are widely available to grant opportunities to a number of suppliers promote competition and provide a larger pool of offers to choose from.
Interested suppliers subsequently prepare a tender document containing the offer they are doing, and includes prices, schedules, and their eligibility for the project or hiring. They define their advantage over their competitors; provide information on the qualifications, skills and experience. They must also demonstrate that its bid offers the best value. Tenders will be evaluated against the criteria defined. In a normal situation of contract, this process must be carried out fairly and honestly, and in a way that is free from bias or favoritism. The offer that best meets all the necessities outlined in the application, and they get the project.
