Price assessment based on:

  • Tendered fee percentages (overheads and profit)
  • Design on-cost
  • Schedule of rates for equipment/plant, site accommodation, people

Quality assessment based on:

  • Contractors Design (how the contractor will work with clients when design is required)
  • Social and Environmental Value (support of YOR4Good fund, Ecological Measures, Employment and Skills )
  • Supply chain management (SCM performance and management)
  • Framework Management
