Who can use this Bidding/Teaming Agreement?
Any two parties who are bidding for a contract together can use this Bidding Agreement/Teaming Agreement.
What is this contract for?
This Bidding Agreement (Teaming Agreement in the USA) sets out the basis upon which two parties will co-operate together to bid for a contract. Our agreement assumes that one party will lead the tender. The other party will provide support and, if the tender is successful, it will be appointed as a subcontractor for the project on terms already agreed between the two parties
What are the main issues?
Cooperation and transparency is important for both parties to collaborate in preparing the tender. While one party will lead the bid with the potential client, it will keep the other party fully informed. In particular, neither party will make any commitment that might affect that other party without its consent. Nor will the lead member submit the tender without both of them agreeing the terms.
Subcontract terms. The bidding team will agree the basic principles including subcontract price and scope of work before submitting the tender and the bidding agreement will deal with these issues. They will only finalise the subcontract if the tender is successful.
Duration and Restrictions. The bidding agreement will specify when it comes to an end – this could be when the tender is awarded to the team or when it is awarded to a third party. While the agreement remains in place, neither party will be allowed to submit its own bid or join another tendering team.
Confidentiality is a standard requirement in many agreements but, this is especially important when in a tendering process.
What detailed terms does the contract contain?
The main points cover:
- submission of tender & pre-contract negotiations
- tender preparation costs
