Quotations should be submitted back to the Sell2Wales website where this notice was posted. Users having difficulty with the system should contact the Sell2Wales support team for assistance. Quotations should be submitted on or before 5pm on Wednesday the 21st March 2012.

THis quote is based on Dell equipment. Whilst Dell is our preferred manufacturer for this equipment we are willing to consider quotations based on other manufacturers equipment, but only for the iSCSI device listed as item 1/1b in the above list. Other manufacturer’s equipment should meet or exceed the specification of the Dell array. Two systems are paramount for our disaster recovery strategy so we will not be looking for the supplier to suggest a larger item capable of replacing the two Dell enclosures. All the other items must be exactly as described or the quotation will be rejected. Suppliers wishing to suggest non Dell solutions for Item1/1b would be well advised to supply an additional quote based on the exact Dell part too to ensure they are not ruled based on their choice of manufacturer. Where a supplier decided to do this please submit the two quotations as separate submissions to the Sell2Wales systems and not combine them as options on one quotation.

We do not wish to enter into correspondence regarding this purchase by e-mail or telephone, we believe sufficient information has been provided in the quotation request.
