Tendering Support for both sides Burgh House

Tendering is used by many organisations to manage the process of selecting suppliers for goods and services. It is widely used on St Helena, by government, parastatal and private sector organisations to ensure fairness and openness in the selection process. Organisations worldwide also use tendering as a way of buying products or services from other businesses.

To learn more about Tendering see below.

Submitting a tender

The tender document you submit makes the difference been success and failure

Submitting a tender requires you to read carefully the information provided by the inviting organisation, and then write a detailed reply setting out exactly how your business will deliver the goods and/or service and, most importantly, how much you will charge. It is vitally important that you get this right, as a vague description or a poorly thought out price quote could cost your business a great deal of money. And however good you are at what you do, a poorly set out tender will reduce your chances of winning the business.

Burgh House has over sixty years’ combined experience in responding on behalf of clients to invitations to tender, and we are also experienced in the specific processes followed here on St Helena. We can help you think through your tender submission, work out how to respond and how much to propose for your charges, and can even draw up the submission documents for you.

If you have already prepared your submission, we can review it for you, to help you identify any areas you have missed and anywhere your response could be improved.

Running a tendering process

A well-managed tendering process gives you the best quality at the best price

Running a successful tendering process is about making it clear to your potential suppliers what it is that you want, and how they should reply. Sounds obvious? Of course it does! But you might be amazed at how many invitations to tender we have seen that fail to do just that.

We can help you create a tender document that explains what you want and encourages your bidders to show what they can provide, clearly, concisely and accurately. And we can help you define the process for evaluating the responses, selecting the supplier and negotiating the detailed terms.

We can also provide an independent review of the process, to confirm fairness.

PS: no relationship to ‘Tendring’, a local government district in Eastern England.
