Questions asked by suppliers

1. Can you confirm whether the 5 days to be completed will be 5 consecutive days, or adhoc days over a number of weeks?
Intention is consecutive but subject to users availability.
2. 5 days worth of work for a Business Analyst requirement is a relatively short period of time. Can you confirm whether further work will be required at a later date?
It is highly likely further Business Analyst work packages will be called off in this manner.
3. Will you accept candidates with lapsed SC Clearance?
The candidate would need to re-obtain SC clearance prior to the commencement of the work.
