Bid Challenge

PASS Bid Challenge is designed to support companies which are concerned about the outcome of a tender exercise and believe there may be grounds to challenge the contracting authority’s decision. An experienced senior PASS consultant will work directly with your company to examine the tender submission and standstill notice from the contracting authority and consider whether there are grounds for challenge against the award process.

PASS Bid Challenge is specifically designed for organisations which:

  • Believe they have been unfairly scored at the tender stage
  • Wish to raise a challenge to the award decision
  • Want an independent, honest, review of their submission and the resultant outcome

PASS Bid Challenge provides a dedicated senior PASS consultant to thoroughly review all the available material and support your company during any challenge it decides to raise. The PASS consultant will use their own market experience to identify any issues within the procurement process and will use their extensive knowledge of the market to provide suggestions on how you could best proceed.

Your senior PASS consultant can support you at any debrief meetings and can work in tandem with your legal representatives to develop a structured objection to the award decision of the authority. They will also work with you to develop a Freedom of Information enquiry, where appropriate, to get further more detailed information about the evaluation process from the contracting authority.

Both your tender response and the original tender specification will be reviewed to identify any areas that may breach the procurement rules and the scoring of your bid will be evaluated to identify any areas where the contracting authority may have erred in the process.

PASS Bid Challenge is available as either a one- or two-day consultancy, depending on your business requirements.

Contact us today to discuss your requirements on a confidential, without-commitment basis and, if you wish, we will provide you with a no-obligation fully costed proposal.
