Workflow to guide you through the process:

  1. Identify your requirements.
  2. Complete the templates provided. For running a mini-tender against this Framework reasonable practise is to select a subset of criteria originally used in the RFT. You must clearly indicate the criteria you will use in evaluating the mini-tender. The templates show the criteria and weightings applied in the original RFT.

Lot 1:

VLE_MiniTenderLot1.docx

VLEspecLot1.xlsx

Lot 2:

VLE_MiniTenderLot2.docx

VLEspecLot2.xlsx

  1. Email the mini tender request to:

HEANET-VLE2014-FW@LISTSERV.HEANET.IE for Lot 1

HEANET-VLE2014-FW-LOT2@LISTSERV.HEANET.IE for Lot 2

Mini-tenders should allow 10-15 working days for responses.

This will email all resellers in the framework. Evaluate responses received with reference to the evaluation criteria used. To assist in calculating the scores of Tenderers you may use VLE_Eval_Mini.xlsx

  1. Award the contract subject to agreed terms and conditions and complete a call-off-contract. Notify the successful and unsuccessful Tenderers.
