Best Value

Best value is a trade-off between price and performance that provides the greatest overall benefit under the specified selection criteria. The term is closely associated with value for money. Seeking best value involves considering the quality of the solution proposed, the total life costs, service and support issues, sustainability etc. In higher value procurement projects, the bid evaluation criteria and their respective weightings will give expression to the perception of what represents the best value.
