Negotiated contracts

Tender by negotiation is a process whereby the architect, on behalf of the client, negotiates a price with a preferred contractor rather than calling tenders.

Contracts usually come into existence as a result of:

  • competitive tendering (Refer section 'Competitive tendering' in Tenders - calling)
  • non-competitive quoting
  • negotiation
  • a combination of any of these
