Tender return slip
A tender is a submission made by a prospective supplier in response to an invitation to tender. It makes an offer for the supply of goods or services. An invitation to tender might be issued for a range of contracts, including; equipment supply, the main construction contract (perhaps including design by the contractor), demolition, enabling works, etc.
The tender submission will generally include a tender return slip. This is a label that is fixed to the tender for it to be returned to the tenderer. It will usually state that it is not to be opened before a certain time and date. The return slip can also include the title of the contract, the return address, a tender checklist and instructions for the tenderer.
