Tendering and Procurement Process
This module builds on the skills acquired in Module 8 by exposing learners to tendering and procurement in relation to complex projects and also to the strategic use of tendering and procurement methodologies.
Tendering and Procurement in the construction industry is complex and multi-faceted. Quantity Surveyors working in the industry require a sound knowledge of tendering processes and procurement methodologies and techniques and how and when to strategically apply these.
Effective tendering and procurement requires an in-depth knowledge of the various tendering and procurement models as well as industry wide practices.
Negotiation is also an integral part of both these processes in this industry and this module addresses the various approaches and methodologies of negotiation. Procurement management is furthermore often used as a risk mitigation strategy and this module looks into the ways in which this can be achieved and the related pitfalls.
