ABOUT
FORTEM

WHAT WE DO

At FORTEM, we have experience from both sides of the table..

Our experience and insight enable us to challenge the way companies and public authorities approach the tender process.

We help both sides to view the entire tender process from a broader, and therefore more productive perspective, because we are not hampered by the organisational and expectational differences that often influence the communication and contact between companies and the public authorities

HOW WE HELP

We help companies handle the bid process.

We prime them to accommodate the public authority’s demands and expectations to the final bid material that the companies deliver.

We assist companies with asking concrete and clarifying questions to the tender material. We help write bid materials and guide companies to constructively challenge the public authorities’ tender material in order to get the most optimal tender process possible for both parties.

We experience that the structure and procedure behind public tenders often seem to hamper and limit both companies and the public sectors possibility to achieve the best result of the process. /

At FORTEM, we often experience that companies spend a lot of energy only focusing on the price part in the tender material, because they think that the public authority weights the economic parameter highest in the tender process./

Our experience with this point of view is that it often has a deteriorating and unsatisfying effect on the quality of the final contract - either for one or both parties./

OUR SOLUTION

Our solution is to put more effort and focus on the areas, where we know both companies and the public authorities can improve themselves.

We achieve this by offering quality assurance of both bid and tender materials, counsel and challenge both parties to have a better communication between each other and prime them to be clearer and focused in their material and their dialogue.

OUR PROCESS

We draw on our expertise and our experience to improve the tender process for companies and the public sector.

We us thoroughly tested tools and processes that make the approach to public tenders more attractive for companies.

By emphasizing the importance of quality assurance, dialogue and elaborate, well-written materials, we help improve the quality of the final contract, which in turn provides more space for competitiveness, better terms and better solutions for both companies and the public sector.
