Query Tender Results

I cannot stress the need to query tender results too much! You have the right to query the tender results of tenders that you have responded to and which you were not successful in winning.

The first stage where your bid can be non-responsive is at the Technical Criteria stage where you must score a minimum of 75 or 80 points out of a possible 100 points to move to the next stage of evaluation. If your bid was non-responsive you should ask the Organ of State or the Private Sector Entity if you can have the results of the Technical Criteria Evaluation.

When you receive the results ensure that the correct number of points has been allocated to your business per Technical Criteria Item. Experience has shown us that wrong points can be allocated to a specific Technical Criteria Item due to a lack of knowledge by the Evaluation Committee. This can cause your business to score less points and your tender deemed to be be non-responsive. Be careful how you answer questions because it can be misunderstood by the Evaluation Committee causing you to lose points.

When you respond to a Tender ensure that you calculate your Technical Criteria Points yourself. By doing this, you will know if your business will make it through the first stage or not. This will also ensure that you provide sufficient information in your response to be evaluated correctly.

Please take note of the correctness of the points allocated per Technical Criteria Item. We have seen tender documents where the points that you could earn per Technical Criteria Item were indicated as 5, 3 and 0. What it should have shown was 5, 2.50 and 0. This meant that when you calculated your score and you had item where you earned 3 points, you actually only scored 2.50. This doesn’t sound like much but if you end up on 74.50 points, that 0.50 makes a big difference.

The point that must be reiterated is that you must take extra care when responding to a tender. Ensure that you earn all the points that you eligible for by answering all questions clearly and preciously. If you have done this you are more than likely go through to the next round of scoring. But that is for another day.

If you want to ensure you score all the points you need to advance to the next stage in the tender process, buy our complete Tender Manual at www.how2tender.com.

Until the next time - happy tendering.
