However carefully you craft your evaluation criteria and weights, without proper analysis, it will be hard to determine whether your most optimal bid profile will win your competition. While there is no way to guarantee the outcome of a solicitation, modelling your evaluation structure will help you understand your anticipated results more fully. We call this process 'War Gaming'. 

Join our webinar on 17th October to find out how our AWARD® software, together with our expert services, can support your modelling requirements, helping you to achieve the best possible outcome for your complex procurement projects.

This ½ day workshop will examine what weighting is for, the issues surrounding weighting and will look at some methods that can be used to create weights that will increase the likelihood of arriving at the best decision. The process of weighting involves emphasising some criteria more than others. The output of the weighting process is a set of criteria where each criterion has a different impact on the result. What is it that makes one  factor more important to a decision than another? When trying to determine weight,  how should the decider go about choosing which criteria are more important? There are many methods available, each with its pros and cons, and there are also legal implications to consider.
