Commercial Management & Tender Support
Delivering projects on time, within budget and to the standard required requires effective commercial management. Ambiguity, uncertainty and contract interpretation create situations that often lead to contractual disputes. At Seymour Surveyors we provide our customers with the best people, systems and processes to keep every project on track. Our expertise and judgement deliver consistent outcomes to our clients supporting their own risk management and governance measures.
We offer a comprehensive document review service to contractors tendering or seeking to enter into a contract. Our specialists are well placed to review the contract terms and identify not only the contractual obligations but will also highlight amendments to standard form conditions where these adjust the balance of risk. We will present clients with a table of significant issues graded by impact and will highlight elements for which contractors may need to include allowances within the tender price.
Seymour Surveyors provide tender support to our customers and have extensive experience of bidding for central government and local authority schemes as well as privately financed building & infrastructure projects. Whilst price is often only a portion of the tender submission, it is critical to not only a winning a bid but also to delivering the project in a profitable environment. We consistently deliver successful outcomes with a highly regarded win ratio and are regularly asked to provide further support to client teams.
We recognise that tendering involves short term, high intensity input and that the right people are not always immediately available within the client operations. External consultants provide a flexible ‘on demand’ resource removing the need for excessive overheads and business disruption. We understand our clients needs in terms of confidentiality when tendering for and working on projects. You can be assured that we adhere to strict commercial confidence rules and constantly review our own work to ensure we avoid potential conflict of interest issues to maintain and secure your trust.
