Section IV: Procedure
Objective criteria for choosing the limited number of candidates: This requirement may be suitable for Small to Medium Sized Enterprises (SME’s) who have pertinent experience and capability. Expressions of Interest are sought only from companies who have a proven COTS solution and demonstrable experience in delivering equipment within promised lead times without losing quality in production. Companies interested in competing for the requirement must provide supporting information with their Expression of Interest but this must be limited to no more than two sides of A4. Expressions of Interests shall be submitted by email to email@example.com. Please note that ITT dates are provisional and subject to change. The FPDT reserves the right to issue Pre-Qualification Questionnaires (PQQs) to Companies who meet the above criteria in order to facilitate selection of the strongest field of bidders to proceed to Invitation to Tender. Only those Companies that can demonstrate a sufficient level of competence and experience against the criteria stated in the PQQ will be considered for inclusion in the tender excercise. Financial Ability: The Applicant’s financial ability to meet this requirement will be assessed on a risk basis and the Applicant’s financial accounts may be evaluated by the Authority. Applicants who present an unacceptable financial risk to the Authority will not qualify.
