Section VI: Complementary information

VI.3) Additional information

Interested parties who wish to take part in the procurement are invited to take part in an Invitation To Tender (ITT) process, based on the open procedure and designed to identify the most economically advantageous tender and therefore determine the incoming provider.

All ITT responses must be returned by 12.00 noon on Thursday 19 December 2019, at the latest.

An early engagement market notice was published in relation to this procurement in April 2019, in order to facilitate early engagement with potential providers. Please note that this previous notice was an information gathering exercise rather than a call for competition in its own right. Although those who responded to that notice will be advised that this contract notice has been published, there will be no process exemptions or preferential treatment afforded to any parties who expressed an interest at that stage.

Interested parties can access the opportunity directly by following the link below:

https://in-tendhost.co.uk/scwcsu/aspx/ProjectManage/1076

In order to access the tender documentation you will need to 'express an interest' and register on the system. Bidders are required to respond to selection questionnaire and ITT questions directly within the system and attach any requested documents separately to the placeholders provided.

On registration, please include at least two contacts to allow for access to the system in times of absence.
