Tender submissions (including supporting and compliance documents) are required to be completed electronically and uploaded to Tenderlink. Late submissions cannot be accepted.

When the tender has closed, a tender evaluation panel will review each tender submission in line with the criteria listed in the tender documents. The panel will assess for compliance with the conditions of tendering.

The panel will carefully read and examine each tender submission recorded. The Council will then assess the strengths and weaknesses and you will be advised in writing whether your submission was successful or not.
