A significant portion of an organization's expenses goes into purchasing goods and services, especially when doing so necessitates the use of a worldwide supply chain network, as is the case in the majority of today's companies and industries. The tendering process is where most contracts are created in an organization. The organization invites bids for the tender process from a variety of competent contractors to carry out the proposed works. This approach makes it easier for the organization to choose a qualified contractor, and it also makes it easier for contractors to comprehend the precise requirements of the work and the risks associated with performing them.

This training course on Managing Tenders, Specifications & Contracts provides delegates with an insight into how an organization can identify and use the most appropriate procurement strategy and discusses best practices in developing tender documentation, criteria, and evaluation.
