Many contracting authorities use price scoring formulas, however these can often result in unpredictable, erroneous and arbitrary results, especially when it triggers a ‘race to the bottom’ to try and win the tender. Instead of actually getting value for money and making financial savings, the impact can be the opposite and result in poorly-performing contracts, disputes and claims from the contractor to increase the price which eventually leads to contract failure. Attend this workshop, to review your current use of pricing formulas, reassess your tendering strategy and develop a system which will deliver more predictable, non-discriminatory and transparent outcomes.
The workshop will support procurement, commissioners, finance, solicitors, project managers, auditors and contract managers who are responsible for putting together tender documents or evaluating responses.
Attendees will learn about:
