South Australia, find tender opportunities near you with #tendertuesday! This series of weekly posts lists current government tenders from across the country and this week we're digging up projects in South Australia. 

When preparing a government tender, ensure you have a thorough understanding of the project requirements. Being aware of what the submission process involves and how bids are judged can help you submit a winning tender application. 

Tender documents may provide a criteria of key factors to ensure your tender is meeting all necessary requirements.

These key factors outline your ability to:

  • Service the requirements of the project
  • Give evidence of project management experience 
  • Supply the required number of capable employees
  • Manage risk 
  • Provide competitive pricing
  • Comply with contract conditions  

After confirming your ability to meet these key factors you can begin preparing your tender application. Make clear mention of why your company can offer the best value for money and identify any value adding services you can provide.

Adhere to the tender document instructions, tenders must:

  • Follow the specified format
  • Be submitted before the closing date
  • Be submitted to the specified location 

Always be confident to offer alternative solutions, attach these to your tender application. This will notify the tender assessors of any additional value you can add to the success of the project.
