Tender Analysis (Excel)
A complete tender analysis scoring matrix ready to be used with full question sets included. Weighted according to current requirements, this matrix allows you to run a full Request For Information (RFI) then score responses.
Anyone buying goods and services on behalf of a company will run a tender and those results need tender analysis.
Where to start?
When it comes to writing a tender, there are hundreds of questions you could ask potential suppliers but you need to ask the right ones. You also need to be able to score any question so you can compare different companies.
Using years of experience and hundreds of successful tenders run, we’ve compiled a list of generic questions you can use to assess a company’s suitability for your project. These questions fall into two main categories: corporate information and performance/operation.
Corporate information questions will help you to learn more about the company itself, while performance/operation questions will give you insights into how the company actually runs its business. The corporate information is section is tried and tested over multiple tenders so will need little change. The performance and operation section works well across multiple spends but may require some changes to suit your company. All edits are easily made to suit your requirements.
By asking both types of question, you’ll be able to get a really good view of the supplier and their capabilities.

There are two versions included in the tender analysis;
- smaller number of companies bidding (Version 1)

Version 1 allows a more detailed approach, capturing key information points and issues to raise and a revised scoring area after discussions or a visit has taken place. Version 2 is scoring only.
Both formats include a dashboard and pricing analysis tool.
