All documents will only be available online through the eTendersNI portal.

2) Expression of interest and access to tender. Documentation — you may ‘Express an Interest’ in a project and access the tender documentation via the projects CfT Menu.

The documents may be downloaded up to the closing date and time for the submission. Submissions must be completed and returned to the contracting authority using the online eTendersNI portal, to arrive not later than the time and date as stated in IV.2.2). The contracting authority is utilising an electronic tendering system to manage this procurement and to communicate with economic operators. Accordingly, it is intended that all communications with the contracting authority, including the accessing and submission of tender responses, will be conducted via eTendersNI. As part of its contract management procedures, the contracting authority and its CoPE will use the protocol for managing poor supplier performance contained in Procurement Guidance Note PGN 01/12 – contract management principles and procedures: https://www.finance-ni.gov.uk/publications/procurement-guidance-note-0112-contract-management-principles-andprocedures The protocol sets out a series of 5 escalating stages to enable contracting authorities and its CoPEs to manage poor performance by suppliers:

— at Stage 4, as an alternative to terminating the contract, senior management in the contracting authority/CoPE can issue a ‘Notice of Written Warning’,

— at Stage 5, as an alternative to terminating the contract, a ‘Notice of Unsatisfactory Performance’ can be issued to the economic operator. These notices remain current for the period of time stated in the protocol and an economic operator must declare, in subsequent procurements, if it has received a current notice of written warning or a current Notice of Unsatisfactory Performance within 3 years of the TP Submission Deadline. If an economic operator has received more than 1 current ‘Notice of Written Warning’, the contracting authority/CoPE, at its discretion, can consider an economic operator’s exclusion from future procurements being undertaken on behalf of bodies covered by the Northern Ireland Public Procurement Policy for a minimum period of 12 months. If an economic operator is subject to a ‘Notice of Unsatisfactory Performance’, the contracting authority/CoPE, at its discretion, can consider the economic operator’s exclusion from future procurements being undertaken on behalf of bodies covered by the Northern Ireland Public Procurement Policy for a period of 3 years.
