“Expert assistance on all matters relating to tendering, supplier selection and contract negotiation”
The VT Studio is here to provide assistance at all stages of the supplier selection process. Our detailed knowledge of the industry means we can advise on firms best suited to a particular project and worth approaching. If required we can also prepare and review an initial “Pre-Qualification Questionnaire” to create a short list of approved contractors to whom an Invitation to Tender is sent.
Tender specification writing
We are skilled and experienced in the preparation of detailed and complete tenders and performance-based technical specifications. Tender documents are configured to encourage competitive tenders, with specific performance and quality criteria to also ensure compliance with all current (and foreseeable) regulations and statutory requirements.
Our documents are designed and structured to ensure that the supplier with the most appropriate solution is given the chance to shine, with absolute clarity on the requirements of the project and minimal scope for misinterpretation. Where appropriate we can build in sufficient flexibility to allow tendering companies to offer standard products as well as contribute new ideas and innovations.
The level of support available from the VT Studio extends to attending tender interviews, responding to tender Requests For Information, assessment of tenders, review of and commentary on tender drawings for compliance with the contract documents, clarification of exceptions and ambiguities with the tenders and submission of a written summary report including our recommendations.
