Preparing a more detailed specification is advised for higher value contracts, and more complex or repetitive requirements, including regulated procurements resulting in contracts with a total estimated value above the thresholds set by the World Trade Organisation Agreement on Government Procurement (WTO GPA).
To prepare a brief or specification, you should gather information to help you make decisions on what your requirements are.
This will include research on:
● Knowledgeable people/experts
● Market information
Any decisions on what your brief or specification will include should include the risk and value involved.
