Only those companies who can demonstrate a sufficient level of competence, experience and resources against the Authority’s pre-qualification criteria will be invited to tender. It should be noted that the AWARD software package may be used as part of the pre-qualification/tender assessment process.

The announcement of a possible future requirement is not to be construed as confirmation that a tender/contract will subsequently be issued.
