Construction Tenders

Managing construction tenders is an integral aspect of a construction business. It is an industry where a large number of projects are put to tender, inviting bids from construction companies. With the growing competition in the industry, it can be difficult to keep track of new tenders and then come up with appropriate bids to ensure your chances of success.

This is where we, at Measure Manage, can help you. We have an experienced team of construction tender experts. We are adept at handling the tender process, from researching the potential of the project to submitting the final bid. We can assist you in drawing up tenders which are in line with the expectations and requirements of the client and at the same time, ensure your interests are protected.

An effective bid should cover your business’ competency to meet the requirements of the project at a competitive price while complying with the terms and conditions laid out by the client. The time allowed for submission of bids varies from project to project but you have to adhere to the deadline to be able to qualify as a bidder.

The time factor often makes construction tenders difficult to handle for businesses. This is particularly true if your business is handling multiple projects at once and you don’t want to be distracted from the current work that is going on. We can help you by handling the process independently, only requiring your input when submitting the bid.

Our team keeps an eye out for potential projects in the industry, which you might miss out on if you are currently occupied. This means you have access to a larger pool of projects to bid on. Once we start working with you, we can analyze each new project and its suitability for your business, making the process even more convenient for you.

Perhaps the most important aspect of construction tenders is adhering to the standards prescribed by the party that invites the tender. We ensure your bid matches the standardized format to give you a better shot at success. With our experienced team handling your tenders, you can rest assured the bids will be in line with your capabilities, expectations, and resources.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

A construction tender is a process that companies will have to go through in order for them to win a construction contract. In a way it is similar to an auction where companies will bid for a project until they are outbid. But unlike an auction the bidding price goes the other way with companies reducing their bids to win a job. The process can take one day to 6 months, and beyond, depending on the size and nature of the construction project.
This really depends on the type of project and how complex it is. It can take a few hours to put together a simple tender but it could also take up to 6 months to put together a tender proposal for some larger jobs.
You must include everything that the client asks for which could take weeks to prepare. However a client may ask just for a price on its own. Try to include as much relevant information as possible to help your tender be read and understood, making sure the content is presented professionally is always a good start.
It will all depend on the client on how the proposals are evaluated. Some government clients can have very strict guidelines that must be followed. Some contractors too have strict processes for procuring other peoples services, and some companies may have no processes at all so the evaluation can be quick and to the point.
Usually, relevant companies will find your company through word of mouth. You can go looking for tenders from companies by simply calling and asking if they have tenders they need pricing. Most companies are happy to let you price work for them. The relevancy of a tender is down to the business owner or the procurement team to decide. Some tenders might be relevant to your company but not big enough in value, or the timing does not suit your activities, or workloads.
