The Goalkeeper’s Fear of the Penalty aka Procurement’s Fear of the Challenge is presented by Peter Lobl, Sixfold International and hosted by Jones Lang LaSalle Limited.
If you are working on a public sector bid, you know that the rules governing the procurement have been carefully drawn up to ensure a transparent and fair process. But what can you do when you think that’s not happening? Is your only recourse a legal challenge?
What do you do when you see a requirement that you think is unfair, disproportionate or even discriminatory? What should you say if the debrief makes it obvious they were marking in a way they hadn’t made clear? If you formally challenge, when is the best time to do that? .. Before, during or after Alcatel?
This session, based on an analysis of recent case law, practical experience and ‘best practice’ will give you the ammunition you need to successfully exploit the procurement team’s fear of a challenge. This is NOT a lawyer’s view and is not intended as legal advice. This is the view of a proposal practitioner who has looked at how we, as Bid Managers can make use of some of the terminology and processes to help us tilt the balance in our favour.
