Course Introduction

Key Principles of Tendering: A Simplistic Approach to Submit Winning Tenders.


The Tender Advisory Seminar focuses on how tenders are issued by government departments, how suppliers should compile and submit their bids. It is also focuses on how tenders are evaluated and awarded to the successful bidder. Prospen Africa will ensure you leave the seminar all satisfied.

Course Objectives

Delegates will learn how to effectively complete “Responsive and Acceptable Bid- Documents”. Classroom exercises will show delegates how tenders are scored, giving them an insight on what takes place during the evaluation and adjudication stages of the tendering process.

Suppliers will also be advised on how to claim incentive points under the Preferential Point Systems applicable to all tenders. The SA tendering rules will soon change, and contracts will be awarded based on the BBBEE (Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment) Status and the workshop will show suppliers how to effectively plan for these changes and not to lose out on available points during the scoring process of tenders.
