Tender Evaluation

Contractors are increasingly used in business operations and construction projects due to the specialised nature of their work.

Clients invite bids from contracting companies via a tender process and usually issue a WHS checklist or criteria which specifies WHS requirements.

In order for clients to have a significant level of assurance that contractors meet minimum WHS standards, submissions are evaluated against the client tender WHS criteria and in many cases each bid is ranked against all other submissions.

There are several benchmarks used for contractor bid evaluations including:

  • Client WHS contract specifications,

  • Client Safety Management Plans,

  • State and Federal WHS Acts & Regulations and

  • Australian Standard AS/NZS 4801 (Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems).

  • ISO Standards.

Tender evaluations have been performed for construction, mining operations, heavy haul road transport, mining exploration and local government contracts.
