The Contracting Authority considers that this contract may be suitable for economic operators that are Small or Medium Enterprises (SMEs). The evaluation of submissions (PQQPs or TSPs) will be based solely on the criteria set out for the procurement, and the contract will be awarded on the basis stated in II.2.5). All documents will only be available on line through the eTendersNI portal.

1) If your company is not already registered on eTendersNI you may do so through the eTendersNI portal https://etendersni.gov.uk/epps/home.do — Select the “Register as a Supplier” link and follow the on screen instructions.

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. If you require assistance or help to navigate the site please consult the on-line help, or contact the eTendersNI help desk. 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 their 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-managementprinciples and procedures. The protocol sets out a series of five escalating stages to enable Contracting Authorities and their 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 procurement competitions, if it has received a current Notice of Written Warning or a current Notice of Unsatisfactory Performance within 3 years of the TSP Submission Deadline. If an economic operator has received more than one current Notice of Written Warning the Contracting Authority/CoPE, at its discretion, can consider an economic operator’s exclusion from future procurement competitions, 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 procurement competitions, being undertaken on behalf of bodies covered by the Northern Ireland Public Procurement Policy, for a period of 3 years. A list of these bodies subject to Northern Ireland Public Procurement Policy can be viewed at: https://www.finance-ni.gov.uk/articles/listpublic-bodies-which-ni-public-procurement-policy-applies
