Abstract

The general procedure adopted by most quantity surveying offices up to the stage of inviting tenders was described in chapter 2. The present chapter examines tendering procedures in more detail and then describes the normal arrangements for the evaluation of tenders. This is followed by an examination of general contractual arrangements, and the nature and form of the various standard forms of contract and sub-contract.
