Casturn hired a consulting company that possibly didn’t have the best interest of Casturn as its core motivation. The consulting company was paid on POTENTIAL cost savings and identification instead of a results oriented contract. Due to this structure, it became about quantity of parts that can be included in the bid instead of identifying the top say twenty percent of parts that, if managed well, could have yielded both companies a lucrative cost savings in the resourcing effort. In addition, the consulting company exited the process after the initial stages giving no one accountability to carry the resourcing effort to fruition.
There is consideration present here since according to the Doctrine of Consideration, ' promises will legally enforceable if you ask for something in return for ' something else. Here, Ken asks for £12,000 in return for his work to build Jack 's conservatory. Therefore, when Jack accordingly contacts Ken to say that he will be employing him to do the building work, ' Jack has accepted Ken 's offer, and both parties have entered into a legally binding contract. Jack 's statement qualifies as an acceptance since there is correspondence between the two parties, whereby both the offer and acceptance are on the same terms; there is nexus, where the acceptance is in response to the offer; and finally, there is communication on both parts. Moreover, when Jack states that he will accept the most competitive ' tender, he could argue that the recommendation from Barnie, ' his neighbour ' who expresses that Ken is an excellent builder ' constitutes Jack 's meaning of the most competitive. ' However, this is not relevant unless Bob wishes to argue in court that Jack 's proposal was indeed an invitation to tender, which constitutes an offer, as according to Harvela.
A tender process is where the payment or services offered/wanted are decided and laid out as a contract between parties.
Ex. Owner gets plans for some project from an engineering firm. The plans are flawed. A general contractor also hired by the owner relies on the information provided by the engineering firm and because of the flaws in the plans they run over budget.
v. This is applicable to our case because the negotiation and contract signing payments can be considered arrangement considerations because the payments are fixed and therefore, should be allocated over the three
According to the FAR Contracting officers may request competitive proposals if sealed bids are not appropriate. Because of differences in areas such as law, regulations, and business practices, it is generally necessary to conduct discussions with offerors relative to proposed contracts to be made and performed outside the United States and its outlying areas. Therefore a request for proposals (RFP) is issued when the award will be based on more than price. The Contracting Office will issue an RFP containing all the information and instructions necessary for companies to prepare their proposals. Then
Within the GAO there are many examples of reports that deal with contract disputes between private contractors and the government. These disputes often arise from one of the parties failing to comply with the aspects of the contract or in some cases the contractors may feel the government violated particular laws that may have not given them a far chance to bid on the contract. After carefully reviewing several different reports there are those that have some aspects of contract dispute but there is one that stands out to me because the contractor clearly feels they were not
The owner called Ron Engineering to sign the execution agreement as he considered the submitted tender as an obligation for the tenderer to execute the project.

A bid is unbalanced when some contractors use this method to profit greatly on a project. Contractors do this by changing unit prices of various bid items to the point where the price does not reflect the true cost of those items. The unit-price contract is implied to an unbalancing bid. An example of how a bid could be unbalanced occurs when a contractor uses the method of unstable bidding by overbidding in the beginning of the contract in order to reduce his finances and then will underbid at the end of the project.
There was no formal bidding process. In addition, it appeared that not all bidders were treated equally. This can be seen when the bidding process was opened back up after the contractors were narrowed down to
Procurement by public entities is guided by primary law principles of transparency, equal treatment and non-discrimination, procurement laws sets up an extensive legal framework regarding the procurement of work, supply and service contracts. There are two main reasons for the use of specific procedures i.e. why contracting authorities do not just negotiate or simply buy from the closest supplier. First, it provides for more public accountability and therefore less cases of corruption practices. Additionally, tendering procedures aim to ensure the best value for money by making it necessary for suppliers to act highly competitive. As a result, market mechanisms will help in facilitating the best possible practices. In situations where market mechanisms are not effective, tender procedures might lose their effectiveness as well. If for example there is lack of competition due to certain complexities or as a result of lower bidder interest, negotiations with just one or two suppliers may be the most efficient manner to handle the process. Therefore, we discuss the inherent advantages and disadvantages of sealed bidding and contracting by negotiation as procedural frameworks for tendering.
