RICS is delighted to invite you to a CPD event run on Bid Management which will be held on the 10 December 2019. United Arab Emirates time zone (UTC +4)

Event overview: Bidding is the most common means of winning work, whether competitively, through negotiations or via a framework agreement. Bidding can be costly to organisations and therefore requires careful planning, must ensure comply with local laws and regulations, and ultimately shapes the overhead cost of a company. This training module covers the entire bidding process from the bidding organisation’s perspective and includes a section on how to compile a fee proposal (from a consultant’s point of view). There is also an outline on what is included in a contractor’s proposal.

The module is not be confused with Tendering, i.e. the assessment of bid submissions, as this session focuses on the management of bids internally within an organisation.

Learning Outcome:

  • Gain knowledge of the entire bidding process, starting from realising the opportunity up to obtaining feedback following award
  • How to manage a bid process internally
  • Key steps in the bidding process
  • How to build a typical consultant’s fee proposal
  • Outline key elements in building a contractor’s price offer

Please note that we maintain attendance registers at RICS training and CPD events. We will also be carrying out extra checks on CPD records and, where dishonest recording is identified, the matter will be brought to the attention of the RICS regulation team and may result in RICS pursuing disciplinary action.
