On 31st October, the London and South East team hosted a two stage tendering event at RICS in Westminster in London.
We had a great turnout and were delighted that so many of the attendees were actively engaged in conversation and contributed to the forum.
There was a mix of 16 London based clients and 8 representatives from contractors appointed to our frameworks.
Discussions made clear that both tendering processes offer a reduction of risk to both client and contractor depending on the information provided at each stage, however it will still be some time until there is a “one size fits all” solution. The key points are delivering value for money and not compromising on quality whilst ensuring there is business sustainability.
We hope the attendees found the day useful and enjoyable and it provided a platform to discuss opening and honestly without judgement regardless as to whether they were contractor or client.
