Evaluation Techniques

This course explains evaluation at both the selection and award stages of public procurement processes.

Course overview

This e-Learning training course is provided by PASS Procurement on Evaluation Techniques.  Evaluation is an important part of the tendering process and it seems with every challenge to get even more complex.  Getting the evaluation process right, at selection and award, is critical – mistakes could lead to anything from a failed procurement process to having a contract set aside by the courts.

Covering both selection and award criteria, Evaluation Techniques breaks down the evaluation process, looks at best practice examples and considers some of the legal issues raised by legal challenges to the procurement process.  The course also looks at various evaluation models and considers the benefits of building robust criteria as you develop your specification.
