Driver Group are able to offer clients both pre-contract and post-contract professional services.

Pre-contract commercial and tender administration services

Pre-contract services are essential for maintaining proper contractual, programming and financial control from the earliest stages.  This will help to avoid problems such as prejudice to tender prospects, uncertainty over contract terms, lack of identifiable intent and method statements, disparity between scope of work and price, and the unwitting acceptance of onerous terms.

  • Production of schedules of quantities
  • Establishing document recording systems
  • Risk assessment (analysis of documents to identify potentially onerous conditions)
  • Commercial appraisal of an enquiry or contract documentation
  • Procurement of tenders and the formulation of agreements
  • Tender assessment
  • Assistance through tender negotiations
