Questions asked by suppliers

Questions asked by suppliers
Supplier question Buyer answer
1. Can you clarify if you require a traditional audit review or is it more Technology Assurance with Project Management Office support? - Do you anticipate receiving continuous assessment & feedback during the 6 month period of engagement or 2 distinct reviews with 2 outputs? - The start date has passed (1 April 2017), and given that the submission date is 17 April 2017, can you clarify the date you envisage the service commencing from? Thank you Then requirement for the Audit was to continue to develop a set of Audit software that we have installed to monitor and report on data and document transmissions across the Data Exchange Platform.So its more about helping to develop the software as the data being exchanges becomes more complex. The other element is project management office support. Start date would be as soon as possible after award of the contract.
