  • The importance of clear evaluation methodologies at selection stage and award stage
  • The Crown Commercial Service standard selection questionnaire
  • A look at the basic legal principles around evaluation at award stage
  • The important distinction between selection criteria and award criteria
  • Choosing and articulating compliant criteria
  • Curveballs and unintended consequences
  • Some issues arising from evaluating multi-lot tenders
  • The extent to which bidders can be allowed to clarify or add to information in their tender after the submission deadline


Registration will begin at 9.30, and with the session kicking off at 10am. The event will last approximately three and a half hours, and be followed by a sandwich lunch and time for networking.
