Competitive tendering was one of the main procurement methods for construction projects in the 20th century. Due to the disadvantages such as impacts of design change, quality of final products etc., continuous application of this tendering method to construction projects has become quite arguable. This research has examined and compared clients’ view and contractors’ view on competitive tendering in the Sudan construction industry. Considering their opposite positions in relation to competitive tendering, clients and contractors have been compared. 16 comprehensive questions were asked. The outcome shows that there is virtually no difference between clients’ view and contractors’ view in competitive tendering. Therefore, competitive tendering may be still efficient and effective in the 21st century as both parties are well aware of the advantages and disadvantages. Further researches are required possibly in other countries to verify the findings of this research.
