Questions asked by suppliers

1. Working arrangements state that you are looking to agree flexible ways of working and that you anticipate this will be on average 1-2 days per week and may be somewhat irregular. For clarification, does this mean that the other days may be worked remotely from supplier offices?
No, the supplier will only be working an average of 1-2 days per week. It is a part time role with irregular working patterns.
2. Can we please arrange for a briefing call to discuss the project and business requirements? We need some clarity over the technical requirements.
All questions should be submitted in writing in order that the answers should be shared with all suppliers
3. I am trying to submit the application but when I am entering the day rate its giving me an error. Please guide me on this
Please email you question to enquiries@digitalmarketplace.service.gov.uk
4. Please could you clarify the expected working arrangements? I infer that the role may need to spend up to 3 days in one week on a client site, but that on average the allocation would be 1 -2 days per week. Is that correct? If so, would the buyer be able to guarantee a minimum number of days contracted for over a fixed period - e.g. 20 or 25 days over 3 months?
The working arrangements will need to be flexible owing to the fact that we are in the Alpha phase and workloads can not yet be accurately predicted. We can not guarantee a fixed nuber of days for the same reason, however 20 days over the course of 3 months would be a reasonable assumption.
5. If the specialist is not located within commuting of London, should the day rate include travel expenses to/from London or is there an expense allowance?
The specialist will be based in London and therefore any travel expenses into London should be included in the day rate. Travel away from London may be expensed according to the relevant policy.
6. This tender looks the same as WP1105: Transformation Delivery Manager which closed on 8th June. Is this an additional very similar role in the Transformation Support team or is the same role being re-competed?
WP1105 was cancelled and all the suppliers that met all the essential criteria were informed by email. This is a reprocurement, however some of the requirements have been modified.
