To bid or not to bid: A framework for contractor decision making
Al-Basir, Ziad (2015) To bid or not to bid: A framework for contractor decision making. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.
This thesis is a framework to formalise contractors process for bidding decision making through categorising the factors effecting the decision to bid into five categories. It opens the door to introduce a strategic planning system for pre-contract and business development activities which cost the contractors up to 5% of the project cost which is considered as high risk investment and would have impact on submitted bid price and the project delivery quality.
