Bidding for public construction or engineering contracts in the UK involves the most stringent and protracted process in Europe. As a specialist in this field, you will be familiar with the risks and opportunities involved.

But how do you ensure the best possible chances of winning? What are public sector tender evaluators looking for? What can be done if you don’t secure that all important project win and how can you seek redress if you think your bid has been incorrectly evaluated?
