AWARD® Conducting Successful Evaluations

The tender assessment phase is critical to the success of any procurement.

Your team has worked hard to produce the tender documents, the bidders have worked all hours to produce their responses, the submission deadline and assessment phase are imminent.

How your evaluators and moderators conduct the assessment phase will make the difference between a successful or unfavourable outcome – it’s time to prepare the assessment team.

The Conducting Successful Evaluations course is designed to provide excellent, useable, practical advice to assessors preparing to evaluate tenders.

With content drawn from over 15 years of experience supporting tender assessments globally, this course offers best practice guidance and advice to support a successful evaluation.

The course can be tailored on a project-by-project basis or delivered across an organisation.
