Other additional information

We hereby advise that we are cancelling this procurement process and shall not be awarding the Framework at this point in time.

Although we received a relatively large number of bids, a high proportion of these were either irregular or unacceptable. This has left us with an insufficient number of fully compliant bids to enable us to award a viable and workable framework.

It is our intention to launch a new tender process in the near future.

To assist us in receiving bids which are fully compliant and enable us to award a framework we will be writing to each company who submitted a bid and advising as to why their bid was irregular or unacceptable, as appropriate. We will also include within the tender pack for the new tender a document advising pitfalls to avoid when submitting your bid. This will be a compilation of all issues identified during this process without naming individual companies.

As part of the new tender we will also be holding an ITT briefing session. The intent of this is to assist bidders in submitting compliant bids. We would recommend that if you are intending to submit a bid that you attend this session.
