Description of the contract
Government Procurement Service is running a second Request for Information (RFI) relating to the potential purchase of a Price Benchmarking Tool. The first RFI was advertised on Contracts Finder in December 2012. The ability to demonstrate value for money savings in procurement is becoming increasingly important for the public sector. Benchmarking is one way that can help Government Procurement Service to measure the price competitiveness of the products and services purchased through its wide portfolio of offerings. It will form a significant part of Government Procurement Service’s rigorous approach to quantifying price savings, measuring price competitiveness, increasing buyer negotiation leverage and assessing supplier compliance with price formulas. Government Procurement Service is therefore seeking participation from interested suppliers who can provide information as to how they would deliver this requirement and what recommendations would given in order to successfully implement such a tool. The findings of this RFI is purely for market research purpose and will help shape the procurement strategy in the near future. Please find attached the RFI documentation that provides more information on the Price Benchmarking tool. The RFI timetable is contained within this document.
