For the avoidance of doubt, this procurement is exempt from the Public Contracts Regulations 2006 (as amended) (the Regulations) by virtue of Regulation 6(h) as it is for “financial services in connection with the issue, purchase, sale or transfer of securities or other financial instruments.” Green Investment Bank (GIB) will follow an open and fair process to demonstrate value for money, however the procurement is not regulated under the Regulations and GIB will also not be adopting a standstill period following the decision to award the contract. Please follow this link to read more about GIB and the new fund that this administration service relates to: The tender submission deadline for this procurement is Tuesday 15 July 2014 (by 12:00). As mentioned above this service is exempt from the Public Contracts Regulations 2006 and its associated mandatory timescales. We recognise that this is a challenging timescale which is driven by the need to name our chosen Fund Administration Service Provider within our FCA application. If you are seriously interested in tendering for this service requirement but genuinely cannot respond within this timescale then can you please advise UK SBS accordingly (using the contact details below) with your reasons why you may not be able to respond. Dependent on the scale of responses received UK SBS and GIB may decide to extend its tender submission deadline but this cannot be guaranteed at this stage. Your attention is drawn to the summary GIB Private Placement Memorandum (PPM) which is referred to within this ITT. If you intend to bid for this service then you will need to have first read this document. Due to its confidential nature this PPM can only be provided once we have received a duly signed GIB Non-Disclosure Agreement (see Annex D of the ITT).
