Route 2 - Open & Evaluate Tender

This section provides you with guidance to assist in maintaining transparency and impartiality throughout the process of tender evaluation.

It is important that the evaluation of tenders is robust in order to provide a full justification and audit trail for the resultant award decision. Organisations must also be aware that tender evaluation and contract award documentation can be made available, if requested, under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. It is your duty to ensure that any procurement process can withstand scrutiny.

Consideration must also be given to Planning, Sustainable Procurement and Risk Management throughout this stage of the Journey.
