Over the last 15 years the tendering landscape has drastically changed...
The level and quality of information has decreased
Whether there is less information provided or an overload of copy and paste, Information is often incorrect, drawings contradict specifications and the bill of quantities contradicts the drawings.
Drip feed of information during tender
Over the last 15 years, with the rise of Design and Build, estimators receive on average 3-5 tender addendums, often with full sets of drawings revised.
Less available resources
In addition to having to fill in gaps in the information received from the client team, main contractors are having to do the same job with fewer staff because of a lack of quality resources available.
Tender deadlines feel tighter
The client now rushes his team to get a tender out for pricing and seems to push to get on site far quicker than in the past. Previously, queries and issues were dealt with in the pre-tender submission, but they are now dealt with at tender or under contract. However, clients are still expecting a 4–6-week turnaround.
Increasing number of clarifications
As we moved from stage 4 complete tender packs to stage 2-3, more varied RFI’s, and yet more of them at tender, have become the norm. This has created a ‘new normal’ in which the information provided is often incomplete and the information requested from the client has become ever more complex.
