The Application of AHP Method for Universities Procurement and Bidding

Dan LI, Zhiguo DONG


Accompany with the vigorous development of higher education, the materials and equipment requirements in college are increasing year by year. Just, fair and scientific materials bidding method has a decisive significance to ensure that tendered and bidder’s legitimate rights and interests. So the method to determine the winning company becomes the focus that tender, bidders and bid evaluation committee pay attention. The commonly used methods that review bid, tender side usually depend on the qualitative analysis and logical judgment, lack quantitative analysis. Bid evaluation is multiple objective decision making problem including technology, economy, security, management and other factors. The applications of the AHP method, taking the influence factors of evaluation as a system to consider, show that the qualitative index can be changed into quantitative index, the evaluation process and conclusions is objectively, fairly and reasonably. This paper proposes a method to quantify the relationship between object and factors in bidding universities procurement of materials, based on the AHP Method and analysis of the representative factors in bidding decision. This model is of universal significance in application.
