Civil engineering tenders and FOI

Is your company looking to win UK public sector civil engineering contracts? If so, you'll know the importance of having as much commercial intelligence as possible about both your potential clients and your bid rivals. Yet many companies ignore one of the most important tools for amassing such intelligence – the Freedom of Information Act.

Commercial information obtainable under the FOI Act

If you use the Act properly, you can obtain such things as:

• Submitted PQQs
• Bid documents
• Scoring and evaluations
• Contracts
• Contract evaluations and performance reviews
• Internal correspondence

Information such as this can give you a vital competitive edge. And, if you have lost out on a contract, it can provide crucial insights in to where you went wrong and what your rivals did right.

How the FOI Act can help you make successful tenders

Forward-thinking bid teams are using the FOI Act to help their companies to win business. If your company doesn't do the same, it's not only missing a trick, but may also be missing out on a lot of business.

However, using the Act for commercial purposes isn't necessarily straightforward. Many public authorities are reluctant to release tender-related information, in spite of their legal obligations. And, if you end up disputing their decisions, you can waste a lot of time and, worse still, run the risk of upsetting the very people you're trying to win business from.

That’s where we come in.
