Tenders and contracts

How we assess expressions of interest and tenders

Assessment of expressions of interest

Any organisation that responds to an advertisement with an expression of interest must be prepared to enter into an assessment process.

We need to select our suppliers carefully to ensure they have the capacity and commitment to fulfil the contract and offer value for money.

Organisations will be assessed as a minimum on:

  • Financial stability and resources
  • Technical and other relevant references
  • Adequacy of insurances
  • Qualifications and experience
  • Environmental, ethical and employment policies.

If the Council has selected firms that have been assessed by a recognised organisation or as part of an appropriate framework agreement such as Constructionline, Waverley will not seek to repeat the assessment already undertaken but may supplement it with any additional considerations.

Assessment of tenders/quotations

We will consider all tenders/quotations for contracts which have been received by the deadline and in accordance with all delivery instructions.  They will all be opened at the same time and a record kept.

They will then be assessed according to the process laid down in Waverley's Contract Procedure Rules or the European Union Regulations as appropriate. Normally we will accept the offer from the contractor who has been able to satisfy the Council's minimum requirements and has offered the lowest price. However, in many cases other issues will also be considered but these will have been formally agreed in advance and will be set out in the tender documentation.
