Consortium Tendering

Consortium tendering generally leads to a stronger offering but requires more bid preparation time and higher costs.

Prior to making a commitment, several factors should be considered:

  • Financial and ethical standing of all consortium members
  • EU and UK competition law
  • Contracts covering responsibilities, authorities, income, risk, payment and delivery
  • Resources for consortium development
  • Information sharing and confidentiality agreements
  • Risks to be considered, addressed and insured against
