Tender Workshop Oil & Gas

The following material outlines content of a one-day training event aimed at helping organisations to improve bidding performance and address the Clients tender requirements in Upstream Oil & Gas markets.

In the current North Sea Upstream Oil & Gas market, the drive to reduce costs throughout the Supply Chain continues with the resulting tenders being issued being fiercely and aggressively tendered. Whilst Cost is likely to be the highest weighted factor in tender evaluation, other drivers are important primarily Quality, Delivery to Schedule and Safety and the Suppliers focus must not be distracted to a pure ‘lowest price’ fits all scenario.

Although tendering companies have historically kept the tendering resource totally in-house and trust that their tendering team is fully competent in the required skills, any aspect which gives the team the competitive edge should be considered. This is particularly relevant when there are less RFQ/RFT/ITT’s being issued due to current contracts being extended by negotiation with incumbents, and/or requirements are being rolled up to larger tenders.

The training event will help participants to understand the Clients requirements and develop a complaint and attractive tender.
