Specifications, have come from the manufacturer just remove any reference or particular items that are unique to any manufacturer. If we have a tender for an x-ray machine I will send the specifications to Philips, Siemens and GE to ensure that nothing is biased to one company.

Anything unique that the end-user wants will be re-named in general terms so as not to appear biased.

I have hundreds of specifications on the PC, modified and updated every time a new tender is required, even have room listings for every function within the hospital.

If you think hiring professionals is expensive, try hiring amateurs!
