Please note: If you do not already have a supplier account on the new e-tendering system (Oracle), you will be required to obtain a DUNS number, this can take a number of days to be issued and is required as part of the system registration, therefore, tenderers are advised to allow plenty of time for registration and to do this as early as possible during the tender period. Registration is necessary in order to view the tender details and obtain tender documentation. A tenderer's capacity, capability or unwillingness to contract with other UK Public Sector Bodies as described above will not affect or be considered as part of the scoring of a tenderer's submission.
