Supplier question Buyer answer
1. Do you have an incumbent in place? There are no incumbents currently in these roles which are new and for the purpose of supporting the delivery of the project.
2. Can you confirm the IR35 status of this role? The role is outside of IR35. Please note that when using the Digital Marketplace we are not permitted to advertise roles that are Within IR35.
3. Can College of Policing put the successful candidate through NPPV2 clearance or will they need this is a pre-requisite? We prefer candidates to be already NPPV2 cleared as this can impact on project timescales, however we would be willing to take them through clearance for the right candidates. We also will need to take candidates through CTC as it is part of the security requirements to work at our office that is shared with NCA.
