Bid Evaluation FAQs

What is a bid evaluation?

A bid evaluation typically takes place after the bid deadline, and involves analysing bids against scoring criteria, to pinpoint the elements within the bid that both meet or don’t meet the client’s specific requirements. Often when evaluation bids, assessors look for the most economically advantageous tender, sometimes referred to as MEAT.

MEAT isn’t necessarily the cheapest bid but is determined by comparing bids against predetermined award criteria to select the most suitable supplier for delivering works, goods, or services. A thorough evaluation encompasses more than just the award decision; it encompasses the planning and implementation of the entire process leading to that decision, ensuring proper documentation and resilience to internal and external scrutiny.

Our bid evaluation services are used before the bid deadline so that we can score your bid from a client’s perspective, and review how effective your submission is. This process highlights areas that need improvement, and once improvements are implemented, can increase your chances of winning the bid.

What is assessed in a bid evaluation?

During the buyer’s bid evaluation process, which will determine the preferred bidder, each bid application is scored against multiple criteria, which can be pass, or scored numerically. The criteria helps to highlight which company’s bid best matches the client’s requirements and has the means to deliver on the bid.

Elements buyers assess within the bid evaluation process include:

  • If the solution is technically feasible
  • The likelihood of the company delivering on the proposed solution
  • The appropriateness of the solution
  • The cost of the solution
  • Is the bid the most economically advantageous tender?
  • The perceived quality of the solution
  • Past performance of the company
  • Does the company have relevant experience?
  • Compliance with the client’s requirements
