Corporate Procurement Unit Guidance Two Stage Tendering Guidance

2 Stage Tendering Definition 2 stage tendering is a method of tendering which involves firstly through a competitive exercise based on outline pricing and quality the identification of a preferred contracting organisation; the second stage includes negotiation and working with the preferred contractor in order to arrive at a final price for the scheme. 2 stage tendering is recommended for high value construction schemes, usually over European Union threshold for works (currently 3.834 million) Benefits of Two Stage Tendering Two-stage tendering brings together the design team and main construction contractor(s) to develop the scheme from the initial design (RIBA Design Stage E). The partnership aims to result in the Council receiving finished schemes that offer the best overall value in terms of design, and should result in the following benefits: More accurate cost information/project cost certainty More accurate programme information and project timescales Reduced tendering time (for second part) Teamworking - joint approach allows designers, constructors and specialist suppliers to work together in an integrated team leading to joint approach to problem-solving and non-adversarial relationship Co-ordination in buildability and health and safety management Early involvement of whole supply chain
