A shortlist of 5-10 contractors will be invited to tender following the evaluation of the PQQs. All tender documents will be provided digitally and must be submitted by paper submission (one hard copy) with a supporting digital copy on a suitable storage device (CD/Memory stick). As part of the procurement process, the HCA needs to be satisfied that you have systems in place for managing health and safety within your business. Organisations wishing to tender for HCA contracts must be registered and assessed by a prequalification assessment scheme which is a member of SIPP (Safety Schemes in Procurement). This also applies to Non Construction companies. Registration and assessment must be in place prior to being invited to formally tender for the project or works. Further information on SIPP and details of assessment scheme members can be found on http://www.ssip.org.uk/ All discussions, meetings and communications will be conducted in English.
