Tendering Process
The NPP tendering process involves a series of phases that is designed to ensure the project is completed by companies that have been rigorously evaluated in terms of technical and financial competence. Contracts are awarded to companies that can demonstrate an acceptable technical capability and submit the lowest commercially acceptable offer. The tendering process will generally comprise the following phases:

1.         Prequalification or Expression of Interest*

2.         Tendering

3.         Tender Submission and Evaluation

*The Prequalification Phase may be deemed inappropriate for tendering certain packages.  In such circumstances, this stage would be omitted, with the package going immediately to Open or Limited Tender.
