0120 Pre-tendering contract preparation
This worksection Template is a framework for the development of request for tender documents based on AUS-SPEC worksections. It includes a cover page and sets out the documents required for Part A Tender information and Part B Contract documentation volumes.
This worksection Template reflects the principles of the main Australian codes of practice, including AS 4120 which is cited in a number of state government's codes of practice. The worksection assumes head-contract tendering. It is applicable to non-contractual material and so does not form part of the contract documents. A tender pro-forma is attached to cover tender offers in the form of a lump sum.
0122 Information for tenderers
This worksection Template is applicable to an introductory document to enable prospective Tenderers to determine whether the scope and type of works in the proposed Contract is within their capability. It is a separate document to, but aligned with, 0123 Conditions of tendering.
0123 Conditions of tendering
This worksection Template is applicable to conditions of tendering including contract information, tender submission requirements, tender evaluation and selection criteria. It assumes traditional paper-based tendering methods but this worksection can be adapted to suit digital distribution and eTendering (electronic tendering system). If using eTendering, consult with the administrators of the system about the standard forms provided as part of the system and about amending these to suit your requirements. The worksection should align with the 0122 Information for tenderers worksection, a separate, introductory document for prospective Tenderers. This worksection does not form part of the contract documents.
0124 Tender submission documents
This worksection Template is applicable to the returnable forms and schedules nominated by the Principal for completion by the Contractor for inclusion in the Tender submission. The completed worksection forms VOLUME 4 - Tender submission documents of the request for tender (RFT). It assumes traditional paper-based tendering methods but this worksection can be adapted to suit digital distribution and eTendering (electronic tendering system). If using eTendering, consult with the administrators of the system about the standard forms provided as part of the system and about amending these to suit your requirements.
0125 Standard contract checklists
This worksection applies to standard contracts and provides checklists for contract compilation, tender preparation, receipt of tenders and tender assessment.
These checklists should be used in conjunction with TG 102 Guidelines for Principals – standard contracts .

0136 General requirements (Construction)
This worksection Template is applicable to the site requirements of the principal for minor civil works construction projects, including site acess, restrictions and investigations, superintendent’s site office, project signage, survey control, principal supplied items, and existing utilities services.
