2. Procurement Process
This requirement will follow a “Contested Grants” process which
is used for the award of grants which fall under Part B of the Public
Procurement Directives.
The opportunity has been advertised widely and will be fair, open
and transparent in line with our broader public sector obligations.
The process will comprise 8 separate competitions with one
relating to each of the policy areas. It will be aligned to the “Open
Procedure” and have only one tender stage with no requirement to
pre-qualify.
2. Procurement Process
Each competition will be run independently from the others, with a
separate bidding, evaluation and award process in each area. Bidders will
be permitted to take part in the competition for more than one policy area.
The bids in each policy area will be evaluated by separate teams that
include representation from the relevant policy area.
The evaluation criteria for each policy area are shown within the
respective Descriptive Document which is available to download via the
eSourcing portal once you have registered and on the Contracts Finder
portal. This also explains the process for asking Clarification Questions
that you may have during the application period.
