Tender works programme
A programme based on a global strategy for the project resulting from the information available at tender stage. It should not be relied on for construction purposes but may legitimately be the basis for the construction master programme. Its purpose is to demonstrate that the contractor intends to comply with the date constraints listed in the tender documents and, where a contract period is not specified, it will indicate the completion date and hence, the duration over which the time-related site costs must be included in the tender.
It should be prepared as a critical path network in order to identify critical work activities and delivery dates of client supplied information, goods and materials. It is not uncommon for the tender documents to require the tender works programme to be submitted with the tender.
