A technical specification is a document that establishes the technical requirements to be met by a product, process or service. The Decree of the Minister of Infrastructure of September 2, 2004 established a uniform, systematized layout of specifications, which is valid regardless of whether the specifications relate to groups of works, types of works or basic works.
The technical specification is a very important document, frequently required at the stage of joining a tender, as it allows estimating the cost of performing a given product or providing a service, as well as making it possible to set a deadline for the execution of the contract and ensuring proper supervision of its implementation. According to the mentioned regulation, the technical specification should consist of 10 points of the project documentation and contain the elements necessary to determine the standard of the project, such as:
- characteristics of the product, service, product;
