    Question 2 – [40 marks]
    The scenarios below present possible situations that could arise in your professional life.
    You should consider your allocated scenario and, with reference to your personal values
    and the values and standards of any professional institutions (or other bodies) you think
    are appropriate, provide a considered response.
    Scenario
    You are the professional employed by the client to produce the tender documentation
    for a project which is being procured using the traditional procurement route on a lump
    sum basis.
    You:
    • have compiled the tender documentation;
    • have sent the tender documents to several competing tenderers for pricing;
    • have received tender prices back from the tenderers and have reviewed them
    for any mistakes, errors or qualifications made by a tenderer; and
    • have advised the client to award the contract to the cheapest tenderer.
    The client has acted on your advice and has formed a contract to construct the works
    with the recommended tenderer. This tenderer has been appointed as the contractor
    and their tender price has been adopted as the contract sum.
    During the two-week tender period given to the tenderers to prepare their prices, no
    tenderers raised any queries regarding the contents of the tender documents (namely the
    drawings, specifications, and bills of quantities).
    Work on site has been under way for some time. When preparing the next month’s
    interim valuation, you have discovered that the quantity of blockwork in the bill of
    quantities that you prepared is wrong by some considerable margin. Changing this
    quantity to the correct amount will add £20,000 to the contract sum. All the blockwork
    on site is complete. Other than you, no one appears to have noticed your mistake.
    What would you do in this situation and why would you do it?
    Question 3 – [20 Marks]
    Provide an overview of how construction professional ethical standards are
    associated with the RICS global professional and ethical standards.
