Additional text
The contracting authority reserves the right to award contracts combining the following lots or groups of lots: Lots 1 – 4.
Lots 1- 4 will be individually evaluated, and multiple awards may result. Where the Tenderer is an Insurance Broker, it may choose to place the insurance(s) required within each Lot with different insurers at its discretion, but full details of the risk carrier(s) will be required.
The Guinness Partnership has a preference to invite a minimum of 5 Organisations for each of the relevant lots to the ITT. However, in circumstances where the final evaluation scores are sufficiently close to one another, The Guinness Partnership may, at its discretion, invite further Organisations to tender where:
a) If any Organisation’s total score out of 100 for the SQ is within 3 points or less of the lowest-ranked Organisation to be invited to tender (i.e.the 5th-ranked), The Guinness Partnership may invite those Organisation(s) to tender as additional Organisations; and/or
b) If any further Organisation’s score is within 1 point of the lowest-ranked additional Organisation invited (as per point a), Guinness may also invite those Organisation(s) to tender as further additional Organisations; but
c) Neither of points a nor b shall apply to any Organisation who’s overall final SQ score is less than exactly 55 out of the 100 available total marks.
To view SQ and Draft ITT documents Expressions of Interest must be submitted via the ProContract E-Procurement Platform. Responses to the SQ must also be submitted by the ProContract E-Procurement platform.
