Reasons why you may be unsuccessful in a tender
Updated: 28 Feb 2017
We are prohibited from doing business with firms who are disqualified under ‘Fair Employment Legislation.’ Companies are likely to be unsuccessful for the following reasons:
- If you fail to comply with closing dates and times for submissions
- If you fail to comply with 'Instructions to Tenderers'
- If you fail to complete or submit the necessary documentation
- If you fail to match specifications
- If you fail to demonstrate the necessary financial stability
- If you fail to demonstrate sufficient resources to undertake the contract
- If you fail to provide samples, when requested
- If you fail to submit the most cost effective, value for money offer
Remember the most likely reason why you will fail to secure business is if you fail to make us aware of your company and how you can match our needs.
If you are unhappy with the decision we have made about your tender application, you can make a complaint.
