Section III: Legal, economic, financial and technical information
1) Entering general supplier information. The Commissioning Organisation utilises the Government Procurement Service Supplier Information Database (sid4gov) to manage and assess general pre-qualification information in the form of a profile.
sid4gov has been developed by Government Procurement Service, in partnership with NQC, following agile development principles to provide a replacement for sid4health in the first phase, with subsequent developments planned to improve the scope of the questions, scope of user access and integration with other eEnabled applications. The future vision is to create a single supplier registration portal that will provide one place for suppliers to register and provide information for procurement in support of management information requirements and responses to tenders across the public sector. This portal will also provide public sector buyers with a single place to access supplier related information in support of market engagement and procurement processes.
Candidates are requested to provide their profile in sid4gov.
In order to access sid4gov for the first time, you will need to register, providing your individual and organisation details including the relevant DUNs number. The use of a DUNs number is mandated for registration and will support identification of suppliers across all eEnablement applications. This will help government to improve data quality throughout procurement and is a key enabler of the policy for transparency. It will also assist in the future development as we integrate across other applications in support of a single registration process. There is no cost to suppliers in registering for sid4gov or getting a DUNs number.
Candidates should ensure all the mandatory fields of their sid4gov profile are completed. Failure to comply with the completion of all mandatory fields could result in the elimination from the procurement process. Please note D&B data will be supplied automatically by D&B.
Candidates must publish at least one validated profile to make their profile available for buyers to view generally.
