In order to make tender work better, many companies will have to learn how to submit documentation as well as request information from bidders. Effective tenders help to relieve the corruptive environment and also shorten the time to select the best proposal. If merely focusing on the pricing itself, then we will miss out on a lot of good players in the industry who have good portfolios and experiences but did not submit competitive rates to attract the attention of customers. Those that are good at delivering quality products and services usually face similar situations as per what was described here, it is relatively disappointing to them since the market is generally emphasizing the importance of “lowest bid gets the project”. Although not every user has the same mentality, it is never the majority who are prone to have such an arrangement. For instance, industrialized building systems (IBS) such as pre-fabricated, pre-cast, modular, Prefabricated Prefinished Volumetric Construction (PPVC), container, cabin, prefabricated bathroom unit (PBU) and some other systems are having lower rates in term of per square feet or per unit when it is being utilized in a mass housing project. However, when it is being taken as individual housing or commercial, industrial projects that have a lower quantity, it can be a trouble to achieve economies of scale.
Documentations are another focus in which we shall also be attentive because it might affect the overall approval of your bidding. It is not really too difficult to work on it if you do not create a lot of hassles that might affect the process of preparing, submitting and getting the plans approved by the customer. We have to also understand the complexity in some but not all customers’ organizational setup in procurement, tender and contract department. They have their staff team made up of a quantity surveyor, procurement executive, project and contract manager who will go through the specification, budget and material to service details offered by vendors in respective projects. It is critical to make a productive flow so either party would not be wasting their energy and time to solve unnecessary issues that were caused by this incompleteness. For the sake of getting right on track, companies must be willing to spend some money in hiring specialists in each role. These departments are essential to make your overall operation better in the sense that they can always be delegated with more important job responsibilities. Of course, outsourcing these products and services checking on prices, and submission of tenders to developers or main contractors are possible. With the assistance of consultants, there are definitely more conveniences than challenges that you were to conduct the whole chain yourself.
It is also a wiser choice if you pre-select who can be tendering your job from the perspective of the customer, this can keep everyone cool enough but yet, it creates biases and others who are potential to get you a lower cost with equivalent quality away from even a chance to quote for your project. The difference between a direct award and an open tender is there, we shall not neglect the effect of each option since opting for one of these, will affect the subsequent chained effects too. These shall be in proper paper works before deciding on a proper system to evaluate the credibility of each’s profile. Moreover, brands and their pros with cons must be tallied in the right way to sync with our requirements. A regional partner is also a must to study when your project needs seamless support by the local participants that can settle ongoing and day-to-day operational troubles in the loop. For example, you must have a Penang contractor to work on your Georgetown project when that particular job requires close monitoring, compared to appointing a Johor based company that must charge more mobilization cost, runner fee and also their familiarity with local authorities, manpower and time required to travel around.
