Did you know that the results of your procurement significantly depend on supplier’s interest towards participation in a competitive tendering, which on its part is affected by monetary as well as non-monetary factors? For instance, typical non-monetary factors are procuring organization’s reputation, favorable payment terms, and the potential to use the contracting authority for a marketing purpose.
For example, the procurement object of the competitive tendering procedure was the organization of competition in the field of IC-technologies. The maximum Budget set by procuring entity amounted 16 000 GEL. The bid, which was submitted by the winner, amounted 101 GEL. It should be underlined the winner has fulfilled all his obligations. Furthermore, the winner mentioned that “it was very important to be involved in the organization processes and to take part in the recruitment of the team members”. That is precisely the reason why the bidder was ready to cover the bigger part of the costs by himself.
