Confidentiality letter (pre-contract advice to a contractor)

A standard form confidentiality letter from a professional consultant to a contractor, for use prior to and during the tender process. Although written from the professional consultant to the contractor, it is usually generated by the contractor.

The agreement is written as a letter requiring the professional consultant to treat information and documents provided by the contractor as confidential. It may be adapted for use on a construction or engineering project.

In other legal contexts, the letter might be described as a non-disclosure agreement (NDA).
