It is generally accepted best practice to procure PPP projects via an open, competitive bidding process. Competition encourages innovation and efficiency and ideally should be as strong as possible . Several different competitive bidding options are available.

Having decided on the bidding strategy it is also necessary to choose a bidding process. This covers the basis for selection and the number of stages in the bid process.

Each of these issues is covered in this section of the toolkit.
