— Bidders are advised that the Contracting Authority is subject to the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) and the Environmental Impact Regulations 2004 (EIR). If a Bidder considers that any of the information supplied as part of this procurement procedure should not be disclosed because of its commercial sensitivity, confidentiality or otherwise, they must, when providing this information, clearly identify the specific information they do not wish to be disclosed and clearly specify the reasons for its sensitivity. The Contracting Authority shall take such statements into consideration in the event that it receives a request pursuant to FOIA and/or the EIR which relates to the information provided by the interested party. However, if the information is requested the Contracting Authority may be forced to disclose such documentation, irrespective of a Bidder’s wishes.

— Bidders are advised that pursuant to the Local Government Transparency Code 2014, local authorities are also required to publish details of any contract, commissioned activity, purchase order, framework agreement and any other legally enforceable agreement with a value that exceeds 5 000 GBP. The Contracting Authority is also subject to the reporting requirements set out in Regulations 83 and 84 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015. The Contracting Authority reserves the right to publish details as required pursuant to the Local Government Transparency Code 2014 and the Public Contracts Regulations 2015.
The Council recognises the resource implications of conducting a procurement of this scale and nature and has taken that into account in the way that it has structured the procurement. As a result, the 1st stage of the selection of the Bidders for this Project comprises a conflated PQQ and ISOS Stage. The Council will not undertake a separate ISOS stage and all Bidders expressing an interest will be expected to complete an Outline Solution in response to the ISOS in addition to a PQQ Response. The Outline Solutions of those Bidders (and only those Bidders) that have been pre-qualified pursuant to the terms of the PQQ evaluation will then be opened and evaluated. The Council will only evaluate the highest scoring bidders from PQQ, being a maximum of six (6) Bidders. It is the Council’s intention to use the Outline Solutions to deselect Bidders. Subject to there being sufficient number, the current intention is to short-list 3 Bidders to progress to the Dialogue Stage. This restriction recognises the amount of work that is involved for both Bidders and the Council and seeks to minimise risk and cost for all parties.
