Questions asked by suppliers

1. What is the IR35 status of this opportunity?
We are awaiting further internal guidance on reviewing upcoming roles in line with the IR35 legislation. The role will undergo a status review prior to award of contract.
2. What is the budget for this?
We have not published a budget for this role as we are looking to the market to inform the rate.
3. Is the authority open to discussion about agreeing to state in the call-off agreement (not the framework agreement) how the services shall be delivered by the supplier, namely the specialist deciding how best to deliver the service in order to meet the authorities requirements, and the supplier having the right to offer an alternative specialist if the need arose?
We are happy to have a discussion with regard to the best way to achieve our desired outcomes.
4. Is the role inside or outside IR35?
The intermediaries legislation applies to this engagement and it is, therefore, 'inside' IR35.
