Competitive procedure with negotiation explanation — competitive procedure with negotiation (CPN) this is a two-stage procedure run along the same lines as a restricted procedure. This requires interested parties to complete a pre-qualification stage by submitting a European Single Procurement Document (ESPD) before being invited to submit a tender. This down selection process allows us to limit the number of parties receiving the full tender and moving forward to the negotiation phase(s).

Under CPN tenders are submitted from down selected suppliers and are then subject to evaluation and negotiation and then re-submitted to finalise positions and allow selection of a preferred bidder.

The buyer is using PCS-Tender to conduct this PQQ exercise. The project code is 16413. For more information see: http://www.publiccontractsscotland.gov.uk/info/InfoCentre.aspx?ID=2343
