The tender documents are available on Lancashire County Council’s electronic tendering site. Use of this system does not require high specification IT equipment or connections, nor high level personal IT skills/capabilities and is free of charge. The contract covers the administrative County of Lancashire; however, where a successful bidder’s capacity and capability permits, the agreement will be open to other Public sector bodies, who may wish to access the provision. The list of possible Local authorities that are eligible to join the contract are listed in the following website — Councils;http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Dl1/Directories/Localcouncils/index.htm. Access to this agreement will be under the terms agreed with LCC. Please note — if you do not already have a supplier account on the new e-tendering system (Oracle), you will be required to obtain a DUNS number, this can take a number of days to be issued and is required as part of the system registration, therefore, tenderers are advised to allow plenty of time for registration and to do this as early as possible during the tender period. Registration is necessary in order to view the tender details and obtain tender documentation. A tenderer’s capacity, capability or unwillingness to contract with other UK Public Sector Bodies as described above will NOT affect or be considered as part of the scoring of a tenderer’s submission.
