Tender Pricing Strategies or Exploiting Mathematical Opportunities in Tenders
21 Apr 2015
April 21, 2015
(Please note: The seminar has been registered by CITB-ConstructionSkills Northern Ireland for grant assistance to registered in scope employers.)
• Can be won by being smarter than competition in terms of which items to price higher & which to price lower.
• Contain opportunities which can be exploited.
• Make it possible to get higher cost marks & more money than competition.
The seminar examines tenders which ask for multiple prices. For example:
• A ‘Bill of Materials’ or basket of services where multiple items are priced.
• Normal & ‘call-out’ rates.
• Routine & ‘non-routine’ services or standard & ‘non-standard’ items.
• Service & repair rates.
• Labour rates & prices for parts.
Depending on tender formats, the seminar shows that it is possible to charge more money & get higher cost marks. The seminar timetable is:
9:30-10:00 Introduction & analysis of tenders
10:00-10:40 Asking questions & using feedback to estimate prices
10:40-15:30 Risk & reward when exploiting opportunities. (This includes worked examples, discussions & eight different ‘Bid Game’ exercises. These allow suppliers to compare different strategies & procurement professionals to understand the impact of different tender formats.)
15:30-16:30 Identifying & managing risks for tenderers & procurement professionals
Lunch, tea & coffee are included. It is useful to bring a calculator.
The workshop is a ‘must attend’ for:
• Bid Managers, Bid Directors & those involved in setting prices.
• Procurement professionals.
It is relevant for all sectors.
