Abstract:In organizations an enormous amount of money is involved in purchasing. It emphasizes the relevance and importance of an adequate purchasing policy for a myriad of companies. To publish purchasing projects for individual goods and services, tenders are used. In order to safeguard or improve the quality and the professionalization of tenders and the tendering process, some companies use so-called tender boards. These boards do exist in various compositions with various roles and responsibilities. Since the use of tender boards is relatively new and unexplored, exploration of the existing deployed tender boards is necessary to provide organizations a guide for implementing tender boards. The goal of this research is to create a framework that guides organizations in deploying tender boards. For that reason, Dutch organizations that currently deploy tender boards are interviewed. NEVI, the Dutch association of public sector purchasers, provided information about these organizations for this research. With this information and the data from the interviews, the following research question is answered: ‘What type of tender board is suitable for different public organizations to professionalize tenders and what are the advantages and disadvantages for each type of tender board?’
