Stage 1 Expression of interest: EEM will release an overview of the members project requirements (EOI) and allow interested DPS approved contractors a set time frame to respond and confirm or decline interest. Organisations who fail to respond to our EOI will not be invited to participate in the mini tender.

Stage 2 Sifting brief (Optional): on occasions where there are a large number of confirmed interested in a mini tender opportunity, on the back of the expression of interest process, EEM at the approval of the contracting authority will run a sifting process.

The evaluation process for qualitative questions or other methods used for sifting purposes will be disclosed under the sifting process guidance for individual opportunities which will also include the proposed number of applicants to be taken forward to the mini tender invitation.

Stage 3 Invitation to tender (ITT): organisations who have successfully passed the sifting process will be invited to tender or all organisations who have registered interest will be invited, this will be where a sifting process was not used by the EEM member.
