Kriterion Tender Management System

Our System

Our system aims to simplify and improve the effectiveness of Tenders by handling every process of the tender system, thus eliminating the human factor and allowing a computer to give analytic unbiased results. This will be achieved through algorithms that carry out each of the steps within the tender process and a point and rating system. Through the assigning of points for specific merits the company awarded the tender is the one with the most points thus the most capable of providing the service and meets the given criteria.

FINANCIAL EVALUATION

EProk looks at company's networth retrieved from CIPC, uses a bid reference amount value set by the government representative that owns the project. It evaluates the total bid comprising the project phases, project materials and the professional services cost against the reference amount set by the government representative. Depending on the total bid cost the 80/20 or 90/10 bid evaluation formula is used. Bids below R1000,000,000 use the 80/20 evaluation formula and bids above R1000,000,000 use the 90/10 evaluation formula.

SECURITY EVALUATION

Retrieves financial ratings of a company from Transunion and uses this to evaluate whether or not the contracting company is financially capable of carrying out the project. For each company, it takes the name of all the directors belonging to that company, matches the names to the CIPC database retrieving all the companies they have been involved with, as one director can belong to multiple companies. The list of retrieved companies are matched against the Transunion database to retrieve their financial standing, an average of this financial standing is used to determine how financially secure and capable the company is. Using Transunion's database we are also able to analyze the financial standing of the directors belonging to the company as we believe that a director who is not healthy financially might be a security risk when handling tender packages of high value.

TECHNICAL EVALUATION

Uses experience based rating to provide a technical evaluation based on the ratings you have received on the past projects. Checks the years of experience of that contracting company in the field of the project and assigns a technical evaluation

MISCELLANEOUS

One thing EProk prides itself with is its capability to promote the growth of small to medium companies as our projects are categorized based on their price ranges, as high risk, low risk For low risk projects, the algorithm functions in a way that smaller companies get a preference.
