The Risk You Run With the Lowest Bidder

Event Date: 
06 March 2014
Hyatt Regency Perth

A review of procurement, tendering and contract processes.

It’s common knowledge; contracts are often awarded to the lowest bid.

This event will highlight how decisions made solely on cost (& the notion of “buying work”) have a negative impact on our industry

THE GOOD NEWS: procurement processes are shifting focus from cost to value.

There is a growing trend with government agencies & private sector operators awarding tenders based on whole of life value. The discussion will also examine the role contractors have to play when pricing their bids.

What this means for the Property Sector-
Hear the insights & advice from property industry experts.
Share your experiences & thoughts on this issue.

Joe Lenzo (Executive Director, Property Council of Australia) will introduce the topic & provide a general overview of the current market. What has been the drivers of a cost focused approach, and why the shift to value based assessments of contracts?

Hear from Nicholas Wolff, Acting CEO, LandCorp to discuss the processes behind a government agency awarding their contracts; and Cliff Rocke, Partner, KordaMentha to look at what happens when it all goes wrong. Brett Davis, Director, Wood & Grieve Engineers and Paul Whyte, General Manager of Commercial and Business Operations, Department of Housing will then join the speakers in an interactive panel discussion.

Engineers, Architects, Developers, Builders; have your say! We want to hear from you; your experiences, frustrations & successes.
