Warwickshire County Council will be using its e-tendering system (In-Tend) for the administration of this procurement process and providers must register with the system to be able to express an interest.

The web address is: https://in-tendhost.co.uk/csw-jets

Registration and use of In-Tend is free. Once registered, all correspondence for this procurement process must be via the in-tend correspondence function. However, if you are unable to register with the website please email us at procurement@warwickshire.gov.uk

Operators should ‘self-certify’ their compliance with the selection requirements and confirm that none of the grounds for exclusion apply in order to gain admittance to the DPS. Operators who are successful at this stage will be admitted to the DPS.
Once the DPS is established the Council will invite all operators on the DPS to submit prices to operate specific route/s as and when they become available — operators can then choose whether they want to bid for the requirement or not.
Operators who win contracts under the DPS will be expected to provide documentary evidence (where necessary) to evidence their status. Individual contract award criteria will be stated in the invitation to tender for the specific contract but will usually be the most economically advantageous tender based on the lowest bid price of those operators satisfying the qualitative criteria specified within each individual contract.
