For major tenders, WorleyParsons typically uses the following contractor selection process:
Step 1: Expression Of Interest (EOI)
WorleyParsons will invite potential bidders to complete an Expression of Interest (EOI) Form. Forms will be available from BIDS Website (www.bids.ca) as the individual EOIs are released. Potential bidders must be registered through www.bids.ca to access the forms. A listing of upcoming EOIs will be posted under the Procurement section of this Website as well as the NOIA Website (www.noianet.com)
Step 2: Contractor Qualification Process
Following the Expression of Interest Stage, WorleyParsons will issue a Prequalification Questionnaire to potential bidders to assess their qualifications against particular criteria e.g., SHE (safety health and environment) technical, financial, and experience level including experience operating in the Newfoundland and Labrador offshore environment.
Step 3: Contractor Selection
WorleyParsons will invite qualified vendors or contractors from the Prequalification Process to submit bids against an Invitation to Tender document. These bids are then assessed against a predetermined evaluation plan leading to selection of a preferred bidder. Following an approval stage, a contract is then awarded to the successful bidder.
In addition to major contracts, the Project has numerous subcontracts and supply needs. These will range from small requirements to substantial pieces.
