Template Development

Ensuring every project starts with the right format template.

Template Development

Our template development services provide your organization with a full suite of our recently updated 4.0 series tendering templates based on the latest case law developments and leading global standards, as well as our standard term contract formats covering the core commercial terms of your procurement contracts.

In addition to ensuring compliance across all applicable guidelines, statutes and laws, our tendering templates are also compatible with standard word processing programs and are configured for automated RFX drafting and assembly with our proprietary Orbidder system. And by leveraging our Orbidder RFX Drafting Control Room, your procurement departments can reach new heights in speed and precision when designing, drafting, and assembling your tendering documents. Our contract format templates are also compatible with manual usage or within our Orbidder system.

More about our tendering templates

We offer a number of flat-rate template development packages designed to update or overhaul an organization’s tendering documents, with an emphasis on tailoring treaty-compliant, flexible, low-risk formats that accelerate procurement while reducing exposure.

Drawing from our Procurement Playbook, we offer a flat-rate Template Overhaul package that provides a complete review and upgrade of an organization’s tendering documents.
