Tender Preparation

An invitation to tender provides prospective suppliers and contractors with tender documents setting out the information they need to prepare their tender bid. It is vital that tender documents are comprehensive and clear if realistic prices are to be obtained, making it more likely that the project will adhere to the budget once the works begin. In addition reducing the likelihood of misunderstanding, mistakes and claims.

DMP industry specialists take great care to ensure these important tender documents are consistent so as to avoid any opportunity for misinterpretation or ambiguity.
