A tender is very important to any company who wants to win a project or task. A tender is an invitation by a company wishing to source the best professionals or experts for a project or task. It has a job which it cannot fulfill internally as it may not have the right experts or resources. Hence, a company is willing to pay for outsourcing the project by way of tender.
A tender call is an invitation to bid for the project by the right experts; the company calling for the tender will evaluate the submissions to determine the best company for the job. There are many factors that can affect the company’s choice of tender company, such as cost, expertise, benefits, timeframe and reputation of proposer.
