INTRODUCTION TO TENDER PROCESS SERVICES

Architects Integrating Industry [AI2SA] provides various independent “Tender Process Services” to end clients using industrial control and production systems.

Key questions: Clients to decide if in house experience exists on handling the tender process along with scoping the requirements and specifications in order to reduce variations.

BENEFITS FOR END CLIENTS

The list below provides a brief overview of some of the benefits envisaged to be expected by clients:

  1. Independent Objectivity since AI2SA is not aligned to a specific product
  2. Accurate budget estimates since AI2SA derives no benefit from implementation
  3. Clearly specified expectations were AI2SA documenting scope reduces scope creep
  4. Specifications which capture client’s Intellectual Property and standards at the beginning of the process, provided that sufficient time is allowed for AI2SA to do this. Often this is not the case during implementation.
  5. Up Front quality expectations based on AI2SA’s experience of critical success factors
  6. Definition of standards up front by AI2SA provide savings due to re-usability
  7. While clients have standard contracts AI2SA has found that often they do not cover all critical aspects of industrial projects.
  8. In the experience of AI2SA often the approach to a project is overlooked resulting in scope creep or risk to either client or system integrator.
  9. Since AI2SA is not aligned to a solution provider there is no possibility of corruption during the tender process which is totally objectively managed.
