Early Identification of Tenders
Early tender advice should be provided for State Government contracts that require longer and more detailed consideration by prospective suppliers than usual.
Agencies can lodge such early tender advice on the Tenders WA website, or on their own website. It is recommended that this advice be publicly advertised at least one month prior to the actual release of the tender.
Providing early tender advice for scheduled contracts offers more time for:
•Local businesses to consider and prepare tenders responses, which may help them develop
more innovative and competitive solutions.
•Head contractors to engage with local subcontractors and/or joint venturers.
•Feedback from prospective suppliers which can help agencies structure or improve their tender.
