Major projects routinely require the lodgement of complex tender documentation in competition with other tenderers. As well as the technical aspects of a project, it is important for a competitive tender to have the benefit of high quality drafting and consideration of the legal issues and processes that would be relevant to the project.

A successful tenderer will also need to negotiate aspects of the proposal that would enable a reliable and competitive tender to be lodged. A successful tender often combines competitiveness with an understanding of the relevant commercial issues and demonstrated means by which these will be addressed throughout the life of the project.
