Learning the ropes


The tendering process is not easy and there are many diverse steps to the process. It’s also something that formal education usually doesn’t teach. So if you want to make sure that you or someone on your team knows all there is to know about the process, enrol on AstroTech’s training course called “The Tender Process: From Preparation to Evaluation”. The course will run in Johannesburg from 29 June to 01 July 2016.

The course covers the following key topics:

  • Understanding why organisations tender and what they want to achieve
  • Understanding the tendering bid cycle
  • Preparing the bid specification
  • Documenting your requirements clearly
  • Where and how to advertise tender requests
  • Communication and transparency in the bidding process
  • The tender request notice
  • The PFMA and tendering
  • Terms and conditions of tendering
  • Identifying and eliminating fraud in the bidding process
  • The tender schedule
  • Closing dates and times
  • Standard forms of contract

  • Analysing tender documents

  • Compliance assessment
  • Risk assessment
