  1. Suppliers who applied for inclusion on each framework/contract and were successful & not successful at the PQQ & ITT stages.

    Response:

    The procurement process did not contain a PQQ stage, but provision was made to shortlist the top ranked suppliers who had submitted a bid. These were subsequently invited to provide a Presentation and Best and Final Offer to ONR.

    In summary, 86 suppliers expressed an interest in the opportunity. A total of 35 suppliers submitted a formal bid. 8 were shortlisted to the final stage of the process, although 1 withdrew prior to this taking place. One supplier was awarded a contract.
