This method is most suitable for works that are similar to that described in the overall framework at tender.

 

Mini Competition:

Where all Eligible contractors capable of carrying out the work from the relevant lot are invited to tender. The ITT will set out the criteria to be used to determine the most economically advantageous tender detailing the questions, scoring mechanism, weighting and timescale. Once the Contractors have priced the works and submitted the required answers to the quality question, EN can analyse the submissions and produce an award recommendation report for the Client to review/accept.
