Contract procurement strategy and awareness

08 November 2012

2:00 PM - 4:30 PM


Innovation Centre, Carpenter House, Bath BA1 1UD


This seminar will discuss the selection criteria when considering what form of contract your client should enter in to with a main contractor. Procurement techniques and how to consider tenders and deal with tender amendments will also be discussed, as will European procurement guidelines and the effect of qualitative criteria scoring.

The session will cover how and why to amend Standard Forms of Contracts and how to incorporate documents into the contract. It will look at how to deal with ambiguities between those documents, as well as dealing with Letters of Intent.

Finally, the seminar will briefly discuss the legislative changes to the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 and what impact these have, to which contracts they apply and when they should not be incorporated.  

This seminar will prove of interest whether your client is a homeowner, developer or public body.
