RoC & Ethics Scenario Discussion: Fee Bidding

Scenario 1: Fee Bidding

APCeye+RoCEthicsA client is engaging with 4 Surveyors to tender / bid for some work.  All parties have exactly the same brief.

The tender / bids are received and the client decides to discuss the opportunity to reduce the tender / bid with one Surveyor.  The client informs the Surveyor that they are their preferred Surveyor and if they could reduce their bid by £5,000 they would undercut the lowest tender / bid which is £12,000.  The client also reliably informs the Surveyor that they have another two projects lined up if they do this deal now.

Discuss the Ethical Issues?
