2. Procurement Process This requirement will follow a “Contested Grants” process which is used for the award of grants which fall under Part B of the Public Procurement Directives. The opportunity has been advertised widely and will be fair, open and transparent in line with our broader public sector obligations. The process will comprise 8 separate competitions with one relating to each of the policy areas. It will be aligned to the “Open Procedure” and have only one tender stage with no requirement to pre-qualify.
2. Procurement Process Each competition will be run independently from the others, with a separate bidding, evaluation and award process in each area. Bidders will be permitted to take part in the competition for more than one policy area. The bids in each policy area will be evaluated by separate teams that include representation from the relevant policy area. The evaluation criteria for each policy area are shown within the respective Descriptive Document which is available to download via the eSourcing portal once you have registered and on the Contracts Finder portal. This also explains the process for asking Clarification Questions that you may have during the application period.
