Pre-procurement considerations

Pre-procurement considerations are key to ensuring the correct procedure is followed and good project management techniques are embedded in the procurement process . Without due preparation, there is a risk that the process conducted by the contracting authority will not be efficient, the solution may not be fit for purpose and the award may be at risk of challenge.
