VII.2)Other additional information:

Due to advice received on this tender the maximum budget of 900 GBP per student per year has been removed. Suppliers are asked to provide the minimum costing per student per year in the commercial envelope question. An excel spread sheet shall also be provided in the general attachment area to demonstrate the breakdown of these costings. Please Note NES reserve the right to negotiate with the preferred supplier of each lot.

Whilst NES is unable to commit to the minimum number of students per year at this time there will be a minimum number set before the contract is signed. For the purpose of evaluation the minimum number estimated will be used in the tender.

Please Note: Due to this revision in pricing guidance the tender submission deadline has been extended until 14:00 on 12.7.2019.
