We acquire experts to help progress projects

Depending on the project needs, RSK Geosciences may advertise for expressions of interest and complete public notices (in accordance with procurement rules) to find a contractor who is suitable. To filter the tenderers, we write a pre-qualification questionnaire (PQQ) and a method of assessment to assist in evaluating knowledge, resources, financial stability and management ability. From here, we select the most eligible contractors. When public procurement rules are not applicable, we obtain expressions of interest from eligible contractors to develop a suitable tender list.

We can assist in, or complete, the drafting of tender documents, including amendments to a standard form contract to allocate the risks and opportunities agreed with the client. Typically, these amendments would apply to one of the New Engineering Contract (NEC) 3 or 4 or Infrastructure Conditions of Contract (ICC) forms of contract. If required, contract agreement, parent company guarantee, bond and/or third party warranty documents can be drafted for the client’s legal adviser to review. In addition, the preparation of a specification, drawings and other works information to define the client’s requirements can be undertaken.

We recommend issuing an activity schedule or bill of quantities (BoQ) so that the costs submitted by the contractors are comparable. We then write a set of tender instructions and a method for assessing the tenders returned. If requested, we can fulfil the role of principal designer and prepare a pre-construction health and safety plan.
