II.2.11)Information about options
In some cases the equipment in our AV Systems Specification is fixed and alternatives are not permitted. However, there are instances where alternatives are permitted and suppliers may suggest alternative products of equivalent specification. Suppliers may wish to present options for us to consider new technologies or alternative products of higher specification. However, should they choose to offer alternative design options, suppliers should ensure that these are clearly identified as options in addition to products that meet our specification. In other words, we want to ensure we can evaluate tenders on a like for like basis, but this does not preclude suppliers giving us extra options to consider.
