Extremely attractive tenders are often put out by the government. But the role of the contractors is undergoing a major change here. What exactly does this mean for you as a contractor? And how can you make a good impression with the authorities in all phases when it comes down to the smart installation of the underground infrastructure?
Nowadays governments put the whole engineering package, from engineering to maintenance, on the market. In doing so, they use different forms of contracts and tenders. An example is functional specification and system engineering. Environmental and licence management is another important task. On top of that, there is the matter of engineering requirements becoming ever-increasingly complex, partly due to the increasing underground activity and the involvement of many parties.
