MS-ITDS-WAN-001 - Wide Area Network Provision - Market Sounding

Birmingham City Council is looking to renew its Wide-Area Network contract. In order to determine what approach we might take to the procurement and what the service delivery model will be, we are undertaking a market sounding exercise to elicit market responses and proposals for a future Wide-Area Network. This market sounding exercise provides an opportunity and a framework to enable the data network industry to inform and shape BCC's procurement strategy, design and specifications for mid- and long-term Wide-Area Network provision. BCC will be using its e-tendering system (in-tend) for the administration of this market sounding process and interested parties must register with the system to be able to express an interest. The web address is: Registration and use of In-tend is free. All correspondence for this procurement process must be via the In-tend correspondence function. If you are unable to register with In-tend please either email or call 0121 464 8000. If you are interested in tendering please click on the following link to access Birmingham City Council's tender Portal: and submit your details to register as a bidder. We will send you a log on and password so you can download the questionnaire. Requests to participate must be by way of completion and return of the questionnaire no later than 12:00 hours (BST) on 14 July 2017 using the Supplier Portal.
