Stage 4 – Plan approach to market & evaluation
This stage involves deciding an appropriate approach to market and developing an evaluation methodology, process plan and realistic timetable. It brings together your analysis and thinking to date. It results in a procurement plan.
It is critical that the evaluation methodology will ensure that the best supplier is selected for the right reasons and at a price that represents value-for-money over whole-of-life.
Below are some specific guides, tools, templates and training relevant to this stage in the procurement lifecycle. These resources are not intended to be an exhaustive list. We recommend you read the Guide to Mastering Procurement [1 MB PDF], which covers this stage in detail, within the context of the end-to-end lifecycle.
