The Returnable Schedules in the Request for Tender document are intended to ensure that all tenders received are equally evaluated.
If your tender is accepted, the information in your tender forms part of the contract. If you do not answer all Returnable Schedules, it may result in your tender being considered as non-conforming.
If you would like to submit a non-conforming tender, you must submit a conforming tender and clearly identify the differences between the conforming and non-conforming tender.
A tender is non-conforming when the Returnable Schedules have not been completed as per our requirements.
No. There is no opportunity to negotiate the contract after your tender has been accepted. If you would like to offer alternate terms, you must submit them in full as part of your tender.
Best value is determined by a number of factors including, but not limited to, initial cost, quality, reliability, whole of life running costs and/or timeliness. We consider "value for money" rather than "lowest costs".
We will review every tender received on time and evaluate them against the criteria detailed in the Request for Tender document.
A tender report is prepared and considered at a Council meeting and all resolutions will be published on our website. You will be advised in writing of the result. This process may take up to three months.
All enquiries following the purchase of the Request for Tender documentation is made on the Tenderlink online forum.
