UCL is not a contracting authority or a body governed by public law as defined by the Public Contracts Regulations 2015. This procurement process is not regulated by EU or UK public procurement law. Where UCL advertises contracts in the Official Journal of the European Union, it does so on a voluntary basis and does not undertake any obligation to comply with the procurement legislation. UCL reserves its rights in full to adapt or step outside the procedures in the procurement legislation as UCL considers necessary. The process seeks to select organisations offering the appropriate capability, capacity and competency. The tender process is being conducted electronically via In-tend. Suppliers are required to register on this website: https://in-tendhost.co.uk/ucl in order to receive documentation. After registering, you should express an interest in the relevant tender and the tender documentation can then be downloaded. All tender responses and any supporting documentation must be submitted through this system. There must be no postal correspondence from bidders unless agreed by UCL. Tenders shall not be sent and will not be accepted by fax or e-mail. It is bidder’s responsibility to ensure that their documents are uploaded on time and to check on the document size capability. Bidders should be aware that typically there is a high demand on the system close to return deadline times. All communications shall be in English (or a full translation provided at no cost to UCL). Any contract or agreement resulting from acceptance of the Invitation to tender (ITT) will be considered as a contract made in England according to English Law and subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.
