Objective criteria for choosing the limited number of candidates:

It is our intention to invite the five highest scoring suppliers to the ITT stage. In the event of any tied scores within the five highest scoring bids then this may mean additional suppliers are invited. For example, five suppliers achieve the same and highest score. They would all be invited to the ITT stage and no further suppliers would be invited.

Alternatively; if three suppliers achieved scores placing them 1st, 2nd and 3rd but four other suppliers all achieve the same score placing them joint 4th then all seven suppliers would be invited to ITT stage. As the five highest scoring supplier places have now been filled, no further suppliers would be invited.

An assessment of the suppliers capability and capacity to deliver the services required will be based on the responses given in the Security Services Selection Questionnaire case studies against the criteria contained in the SQ Instructions to Potential Suppliers on BravoSolution.
