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.

10 Essential Documents Needed To Tender

The last week we were asked to help a lady to respond to a request for quotation to provide cleaning services to a Public Entity. It seemed pretty easy at first but once we got to the stage where we had to submit the required and mandatory documents the problems started.
