In any organisation processes can be seen evolving throughout their lifecycle and play a deciding role in the efficiency of organisational activities. Tender processes are no different and with growing competitiveness and globalisation it has become the responsibility of managerial staff to ensure continuous improvement is applied to processes so organisational goals are consistently met and knowledge, talents and other success factors are institutionalised therein. The objective of this study was to perform an iteration of process re-engineering on the tender process within Tubular Track, so that a tender could be performed more efficiently and more competitively, and be more manageable. The investigation was carried out by means of a literature review and interviews. This was done to establish an accurate baseline from the current process and then re-engineer the system in its entirety. Verification of the investigation method was done through application of the PMBOK proven project management methods, while validation was done by comparison of processes through process improvement methodology principles as relationship. Process improvement and its management is a continuous procedure but because this study only focuses on the design of a new tender process for Tubular Track the conclusion that was made through literature application and comparison was that the newly designed process is expected to improve efficiency, manageability and time to complete. In the final conclusion stage recommendations were also made that re-engineering phases be planned and followed with corresponding risk and change management plans. Training needed for personnel so that implementation would be optimally applied and continuous improvement institutionalised would also need inspecting.
