Pre-contract commercial and tender administration services

Pre-contract services maintain contractual, programming and financial control of a project, from the earliest stages. This helps to avoid problems such as prejudice to tender prospects, uncertainty over contract terms, lack of identifiable intent and method statements, disparity between scope of work and price, and the unwitting acceptance of onerous terms. The costs for failures at pre-contract stage can be considerable. 

Our scope of strategic management and pre-contract services include:

  • Assessment of contract conditions prior to ratification to ensure proper representation of agreements made
  • Assistance through tender negotiations
  • Commercial appraisal of an enquiry or contract documentation
  • Commercial feasibility studies and budgeting
  • Contract formation
  • Cost estimating and control
  • Establishing document recording systems
  • Procurement of tenders and the formulation of agreements
  • Production of schedules of quantities
  • Production of tender and contract documentation
  • Project planning (including assistance with the presentation of tender programming and method statements)
  • Risk assessment (analysis of documents to identify potentially onerous conditions)
  • Tender assessment
  • Value engineering
