Stage two: Contract documentation

The contract documentation from the Royal Borough of Greenwich generally includes three parts.

The specification

The specification describes the work and the standards that are required.

Procurement officers normally prepare it jointly with the relevant council service to ensure that the proper process and technical input are included in the specification.

The consultation process will have determined much of the content of the specification.

The terms and conditions of the contract

This sets out the contract that will be entered into between us and the appointed contractor.

The pricing document

This enables the tenderer to set out and provide a price for the work.

Other documents you may be provided with include site plans, drawings and other supplementary information as appropriate to aid the bidder to submit an informed tender.

These documents may be set out in accordance with industry standards and practices, EU and English law and Council Standing Orders. They seek to achieve the most economically advantageous bid.
