Abstract

Tender evaluation is an important part of a tendering process. The purpose of it is to help an organization in selecting the most suitable contractor to award the tender. There have been many issues on the criterion used in evaluating a tender. This criterion varies from one type of tender to another based on the type of the tender such as for work or IT projects. Currently, lowest price offered is one of the most important indicators taken under considerations by both type of tenders. However, there are also other indicators used in tender evaluation. The ability for the tender participants or the bidder to fulfill the technical requirements is also considered as an important indicator in evaluating a tender. There are other indicators as well such as work experience, qualifications of employees, past performance, financial capabilities and so on that is still need to be taken into consideration in evaluating a tender. This study is done to identify the criterion used in evaluating the tender of IT projects and a requirement model is then proposed based on the criterion found for an automated tender evaluation system. This requirement model is then reviewed by one of the experienced tender evaluation committee members to verify the completeness of functionality, the efficiency and the ease of use of the proposed model through a developed prototype.
