Questions asked by suppliers

1. As the request is for two specialists, but each Specialist opportunity on the DOS framework is only for one single specialist, does this mean that the two specialists must come from two different suppliers?
We would like the two specialists to come from the one supplier please.
2. How would you suggest that we provide evidence for two separate specialists as there’s only space to provide evidence for one?
If possible, please provide evidence for two specialists on the one attachment.
3. Can i clarify that this is a 6 week contract?
This contract will be until the 31st March 2021.
4. Is the maximum rate of £900 per developer or for both developers combined?
Between £300 - £400 each role per day.
5. Do you have any indicative budget/estimated cost for this work?
Overall budget approximately between £30,000 - £35,000
6. Is this contract inside or outside of IR35 please?
I believe this will be inside IR35
7. Can you confirm if there is an incumbent currently delivering this service?
No – these will be additional resources to support some new features that need to be developed.
8. Can the work be shared between 2 suppliers, as it requires 2 specialists?
We are looking for 2 WTE’s. A Full Stack developer should have all the necessary skills, so I don’t see a need to split the roles.

We will want them working UK business hours. So, yes we want them uk based.
