All questions are to be answered in the boxes provided and unless specifically required, no uploaded documentation or answers will be considered. Potential Providers should check readability and content of answers in these boxes before submitting. Some questions contain a character limit which is applied automatically by the Westworks portal. Please note that the number of characters counted by the Westworks portal is not the same as the character count by MS Word. Questions should be answered in English. The information supplied will be checked for completeness and compliance with the instructions before responses are evaluated. However, because of the volumes of responses received for this type of tender, the Authority may not seek clarification to any part of Potential Providers responses. It is therefore imperative that submissions are checked for completeness and accuracy prior to submission. Potential Providers should note that it is possible to resubmit submissions right up until the close date and that only the last submission will be visible to the Authority. For further instructions and clarifications please see the help links on the Westworks portal. Only information specifically requested should be provided and ALL uploaded documents should be in the format stipulated within the electronic questionnaire section (e.g. .pdf, Excel Spread sheet etc.). Failure to provide documents in the correct format will result in the response being disregarded and may mean the Potential Provider will be eliminated from the process. When answering questions within the electronic questionnaires the space provided should be used to answer the questions. It should be noted that references to other documents will not be accepted as answers and that such a response will not be marked. Corporate brochures or any other marketing information is deemed as being not appropriate as a response to this tender and will therefore not be accepted. For clarity; all text files should preferably be .pdf format but failing that Microsoft Word .doc format; all pricing matrices and spreadsheets should be in MS Excel file format only (2007 or earlier compatibility) and unchanged from the original layout and formatting. Files uploaded in other formats or with changed formatting will be discarded and their content not taken into consideration. Throughout the process there will be a number of pass/fail questions which will be evaluated first. The Authority will not automatically seek clarification for any of these questions. Any of these pass/fail questions which are failed will result in automatic exclusion from the rest of the tender process. Uploaded documents are restricted to one per question unless otherwise directed; therefore any supporting evidence for a question should be consolidated into a single document prior to uploading. The Authority reserves the right to seek clarification to any part of submissions should this be deemed necessary by the evaluation panel but this will not be the Authority’s priority or default position. Failure to provide the required information, make a satisfactory response to any question or supply documentation referred to in responses, within the specified time-scale, may mean that a Potential Provider will not be invited to participate further. Potential Providers will not be automatically prompted for missing information. In the event that none of the responses are deemed satisfactory, the Authority reserves the right to terminate and where appropriate, to re-advertise the procurement. Potential Providers must be explicit and comprehensive in their responses to this procurement as this will be the source of information on which qualitative and selection responses will be scored and ranked. Potential Providers are advised neither to make any assumptions about their past or current supplier relationships with the Authority or its users, nor to assume that such prior business relationships will necessarily be taken into account in the evaluation procedure. Important note: It is not the intention to split the works by geographical lots but to award places on the framework based on having enough providers to deliver in all areas and to award works contracts by running mini-competitions (mini-tenders) from the framework. Bidders will be required to identify the areas in which they are able to provide the services described within the tender documents. Good luck and we look forward to receiving your completed submissions. The Westworks Team.
