Accounts Payable Audit Solution – Soft Market Testing
The authority is requesting information from suppliers of an accounts payable audit solution to understand what is available in the market, including outcomes, to assist with drafting a future tender specification.
North Yorkshire County Council (“the Authority”) procured a single-supplier framework agreement in late-2016 / early 2017 for the provision of an Accounts Payable Audit Solution. This was to work alongside an organisations existing accounting solution to protect organisational spend through the examination of transactional and supplier information to identify potential financial errors. The framework was open for all public sector organisations to use in the UK and was accessed by over 50 public sector organisations. The framework is expiring and so the Authority are looking to put in place another framework agreement. The Authority is requesting information from suppliers of an Accounts Payable Audit Solution to understand what is available in the market, including outcomes, to assist with drafting a future tender specification. Suppliers are asked to advise if they would be interested in bidding for this opportunity as part of their response to the RFI. If suppliers are not interested in bidding, it is requested that they inform the Authority and provide a reason why. Subject to the outcome of the RFI, this may again be a single-supplier framework; alternatively several suppliers may be accepted on to the framework with the option of direct award to the first-ranked organisation, or carrying out a further competition involving all suppliers.
