For the Combined Tender document, we do not require each tender price to be resubmitted, only the revised tender price on a combined basis overall as detailed in the attached Combined Tender form GM5. You should note that, if submitting a combined tender, all individual pricing for miscellaneous works should be as per your individual item tenders submission.
Please note that, within each document, there is a compliance section that must be met in order for the tender evaluation to proceed.
You are also asked to note that this contract(s) will attract fines if performance does not meet specified outputs, potentially escalating to termination of the contract(s).
As part of this process you should accompany your tender submission with two written references from your existing customers as to your professional competence, reliability and suitability to carry out these proposed works .
Failure to provide these will automatically disqualify you from the tender process.
Finally, in closing, thank you in advance for taking the time to consider this tender, and I look forward to receiving it. Please email confirmation of your intention to tender.
Yours sincerely
Colin Hill
Interim Town Clerk and Responsible Financial Officer
