Letter of Award

A letter of award is a letter that is sent to notify somebody that they have been awarded something – usually of monetary gain – such as a business contract or a social benefit from the Government.


This type of letter is very common in auction situations, where multiple parties are bidding on the same job. For example, if a company was taking bids on contactors to expand their factory, they would send a letter of award to the contractor they chose to complete the job.


Essential information to include in a contractor letter of award is the date the contractor submitted tender or interest, the monetary value of the contract, the date from which it’s valid, and detailed information on the work required.


With Social Security, when a claimant has been assessed and deemed eligible for payments, they will receive a letter of award detailing how much they will get and when.
