The evaluation of maintenance tenders is a task that involves not only consideration of the prices offered, but the financial and technical expertise of the tenderers as well. The evaluations can be highly complicated and lengthy when dealing with large projects and numerous tenderers. Presents an evaluation methodology in the form of a tabular procedure to be used by the evaluators of maintenance contracts. Develops seven tables to provide quantitative values for the submitted tenders. The first five tables are designed to evaluate the technical efficiency of the tenderers, while the sixth table is designed for the final evaluation including prices. In the first table, the tender compliance as per the requirement of the tender document is evaluated. Uses the second table to evaluate the support and maintenance plan. The third table presents an evaluation of the experience and the financial status of the tenderer. The fourth and fifth tables are used to evaluate the tenderer’s staffing proposal and how it is related to the requirements of the project. The sixth table summarizes the evaluation of the previous four tables for each evaluator. The seventh table illustrates the final evaluation of each tenderer, and hence a decision could be made. By adding the average technical score of each tenderer to his price score, the evaluator can easily rate each tenderer’s ability to carry out the work rather than depending only on price, which might not always mean a good choice.
