Release a tender and select a contractor

Release the tender, evaluate responses and negotiate a solution with the preferred tenderer.

Request for tender

Once you have prepared the request for tender (RFT), to select and formally engage the preferred tenderer, you will need to:

  • gain approval to release the tender documentation
  • notify the market of the procurement and release the tender documents
  • interact with the market during the tender process
  • evaluate responses
  • negotiate with shortlisted tenderers
  • close the deal.

Expression of interest

The guidance below is primarily focused on the release of RFTs, however, when releasing the expression of interest (EOI) and selecting a shortlist to proceed to the RFT stage, many of the processes are similar to that outlined below, including gaining approval to release the tender documentation, notifying the market of the procurement and evaluating responses.
