Tender Scoring and Tender Fraud

We are asked by many people that attend our How-to-Tender workshops if all tenders are not awarded fraudulently. Our straight and quick answer is no, not all tenders are awarded on a fraudulent manner. 

Last week we attended a briefing session of the National Department of Health. These briefing sessions are always interesting, specifically those requesting the supply of pharmaceutical products. These products are very specialized and only companies with the correct credentials can actually respond to these tenders.
