Commissioner and providers both want the tender process to be smooth sailing, and by improving tenders it both encourages competition and ensures suitable companies are selected.
Valuing Care works with Tendering for Care to provide support and advice to commissioners on how best to construct a tender. We also provide an insight into effective ways to avoid the most common tendering mistakes that cost both time and money.
- Compliance checking
Often a small detail in procedure is sufficient to warrant a challenge, so ensuring tenders meet the rule of fairness, transparency, and equal treatment is essential in order to avoid delays in awarding contracts, or indeed having to pursue the costly re-tender process.
Our compliance checks reduce the risk of both costly re-tenders and legal appeals.
- Pre-tender review
Ensuring that proposals set out in the business case fully comply with regulations, well before checks are made, can make a significant contribution to the effectiveness of a tendering process.
Our Pre-tender review services ensures procurement requirements are met and that you are making the most of the new opportunities for more effective commissioning in the future.
