Can you afford to waste time by not using a Bill of Materials
A Bill of Materials allows you to compare ‘apples with apples’. When there is so much detail to consider, a Bill of Materials allows you to easily determine who is competitive and who is not.
If you need the best value for money while not compromising quality, then you must use a Bill of Materials.
Smarter Decisions with a Bill of Materials
Tendering a project to several suppliers or sub-contractors can get complicated. You need to determine who not only has the best price, but also who has the capability and skills to perform the job accurately and professionally on time.
When you request quotes from sub-contractors or suppliers, the best way to do this is to use a Bill of Materials. This is a detailed list of each item or service required to fulfill their scope.
If you don’t itemize the materials and services and ask each supplier to price accordingly, when you receive prices back it will be impossible to determine who has the best price.
A Bill of Materials allows you to make an informed decision about who the best and most competitive supplier is.
3 Valuable Benefits of Using a Bill of Materials

Benefit 2 – Determine Best Value
You will be able to determine who is providing the better overall service and/or product.
Benefit 3 – No need to Guess

Don’t Make the Same Mistake
I have been in this situation myself. I once requested quotes from 5 different contractors for a semi-complex project. Thinking it would be faster and easy to simply make a quick decision, it didn’t turn out like I thought it would.
Once the quotes started coming in, I quickly realized how different they were going to be.
Some contractors had included items that I hadn’t even thought about and some contractors didn’t. There were bits and pieces of things everywhere and trying to wade through all 5 quotes just became confusing.
I even thought I would be smart and tried to create a separate MS Excel file to extract each contractors items and price. That just turned into an even bigger nightmare!
What a colossal waste of time.
That was the first and last time I sent out a quote request without including a Bill of Materials. Don’t make the same mistake and waste your time.
