Procurement Services

Procurement of goods and services has become more and more challenging with the inclusion of various trade agreements, complex laws and with the increased attention paid to government contracting. Along with this evolution, evaluation has become more open to question and more frequently challenged.

Each bid and evaluation must be precisely tailored to the requirement. Allan Cutler Consulting are able to customize bid documents of all types—Requests for Proposals, Request for Standing Offers or Supply Arrangements, among others.

Our extensive knowledge of the bidding process means that we provide you with assistance at all stages of the procurement process. Alternately, we can limit our service to assisting clients in developing their own bid documents and evaluating bids.
