RTI Application for Tender Documents

TENDER DOCUMENTS


As per CVC directives, details of concluded tenders are required to be uploaded on official website of the public authority concerned. You can access details of such concluded tenders from its website. If the public authority didn't upload such details, you can file RTI Application with the concerned PIO of that public authority and seek information pertaining to concluded tenders.

An ordinary citizen may not have the details and nomenclature of tender works awarded by a particular public authority. It would therefore be necessary to ascertain the details of all works tenders invited and finalized by the public authority, for which Letter of Acceptance issued as also the works executed, being executed and pending for execution.

Tender related information is voluminous. Therefore, it is advisable to obtain the list of all works for which tender acceptance issued by the public authority as also the copy of Tender Acceptance Letter issued to successful bidder by filing First RTI Application as per sample given below. On getting information from the PIO, from the list of works and the copy of acceptance letter, you can plan further course of action. Letter of Acceptance of Tender Offer, issued to the successful bidder shall contain many attributes like Cost of accepted tender, total completion period, special conditions, if any. You can pick up few works of your interest, from the list of works or Letters of Acceptance of Tender Offers or from the Contract Agreements and file second RTI Application as per sample below and seek specific documents pertaining to that particular tender.

Remember, documents pertaining to a concluded Tender may contain 100 to 1000 pages, depending upon the nature of work. Therefore, before filing second RTI Application, you must select the work(s) with objectivity to serve specific purpose, such as - inordinate delay in completion of work and apathy of public authority in not enforcing penal clauses etc., thereby causing inconvenience to public.
