Task 1: Identifying Risks and Modifying Contract and Tender Documents

The first task Jai has asked you to complete is to identify and review the tender documents and contract, to establish any possible risks to be considered when preparing the tender for submission. Jai has requested that you email him with your findings once you have addressed the key points he wants you to check.

To complete this task Jai has provided you with an outline of what is required as below:

  • Review the specifications provided and confirm that the items required and the costs for each bathroom item are included.  
  • Review the Devlon contract document provided. In Cause 11, confirm that the costs for specifications for all the bathroom items have been listed and calculated correctly by the Principal ‘Heights Construction’, and these have been included in the contract. Identify the areas within the contract which have been missed and must be included. You also need to establish if the contract used is appropriate for this type of build.
  • Review the policies and procedures of Sullivon Constructions and establish two (2) key policies/procedures which directly affect the tender process and must be adhered to.
  • List at least three (3) possible risks associated with the contract and complete the risk assessment for each identified risk.

Your task

Having reviewed all the required contract documents and resources for the tender, write an email to Jai. Use the template provided in Appendix A to write your email.

In your email, provide Jai with the following information based on your evaluation of the required tender documents:

  2. ii) List the items to be included in the costings for one of the ensuite bathrooms.

iii) Now calculate the costs for both ensuites shown on level 2.

3.Complete the table below to identify the bathroom inclusions that ‘Heights Construction’ has not identified in Clause 11 – Prime Cost Item Schedule of the Devlon contract. These items constitute incomplete items of the contract that need to be costed for the tender process. (You will also need this information to complete Part B of the assessment.) Copy and paste the completed table below to your email to Jai.

Substitution and readjustment of the costings of labour and materials as per the current prices and set a meeting with  the client for a discussion of the revised costing of the project to avoid losses

This would lead to delay of the completion of the project and hence liquidated damages to the client.

Ensure all construction materials are available before commencement of the project. Propose substitution of unavailable materials to the client.
