In this session, we will look at evaluating complex bids and tenders. This is far from the mechanical process that some might imagine, and takes us into challenging issues around weighting evaluation factors, and the basis for converting costs into scores so that we can compare cost against other factors. See how different methodologies can lead to totally different supplier selection results in some cases.

The briefing will cover the following areas:

  • Overall structure and options for tender evaluation
  • Purposes for best practice for pre-qualification
  • Selecting the supplier – methodologies for weighting and scoring
  • Bringing price into the equation – including ‘cost’ in scoring systems

CIPS, working with A.T. Kearney and ISM have developed a free and confidential benchmarking tool, the ROSMA Performance Check, to help organisations measure and evaluate their return on investment in procurement.

This webinar will outline how hundreds of CPOs are using ROSMA to quantify the benefit delivered by procurement and to gain support from senior management to drive continuous improvement. You’ll also hear the aggregated findings from the 2014 ROSMA Performance Check which included the finding that top performers are reporting hard financial results in excess of seven times their costs and investments and, in conjunction with the launch of the free 2015 ROSMA Performance Check, you’ll find out how you can use too.

Once you have registered to attend, a webinar link will be emailed to you shortly.
