Section IV: Procedure
This contract was previously published under OJEU reference 212/602-2017. On reviewing the tender returns, it was identified that the pricing structure was more complicated than required and therefore this notice is being published to allow interested bidders to resubmit their proposals. The decision to republish the OJEU notice was to ensure that any bidder who did not initially apply could still have their tender considered.
