Quality Evaluation Headings and Weightings



ANNEXE 1

Quality Evaluation Headings and Weightings

In the Instructions to Tender, it was stated that the Council required the submission of Method Statements in the form of a Draft Operational Plan in order to assess the working proposals & ability of the contractor in a number of relevant areas – as shown in the table below. Further detail was provided in the Conditions of Contract on those issues needing to be addressed under each heading in order that the Council could assess fully each Tenderer’s ability and experience.

As a separate exercise, the Council arrived at an overall weighting of the importance of each element (also shown in the table below) and all the information was lodged with the District Auditor in advance of the receipt of tenders.

Each of the above was marked out of 10, thus making a total of 500 points for quality once the weighting had been applied.

Members of the Working Group marked each tenderer’s Method Statements individually. The Working Group then met to adopt a consensus score, which was in turn brought to the full Evaluation Panel, which consisted of the Director of Environment and Leisure, the original markers, plus officers from Audit and Legal services.
