CPD is issuing to all suppliers registered on eTendersNI; click here to download the bulletin. It provides an update on the system, highlights the increasing number of opportunities available as it rolls out across the wider public sector, and notes a number of enhancements to functionality being made.
Importantly, the bulletin reiterates that submitting tenders in good time is key, especially if users are unfamiliar with the system. The helpdesk can help users resolve queries if there is time to diagnose the problem and to talk the users through the steps they need to take.
eTendersNI is fully operational, with over 1,000 calls for tender having been processed through the system, and 4,500 tenders submissions made. It is in CPD’s and contracting authorities’ interests to have the widest possible range of competitive tenders and not to have suppliers losing out through coming too late to the system to upload their submission.
More details regarding this process will be available at the HAE Event being held at the Park Avenue, Hotel in Belfast on Thursday 10 March 2016 – see below for more details, there are just a few places left!
