Questions asked by suppliers

1. Please clarify the latest start date (currently listed as 1/8/2016) What is the budget for this assignment?
The latest start date is the 15/08/2016. There is no set budget for the specialists required.
2. Please clarify the following - When you state Flexible team, will you still be requiring 5 days a week. It could be either at supplier premises or Buyers premises.
We will require a 5 working day week. This will be at the London office as well as travelling to partnering sites.
3. Do consultants need to hold existing DV Clearance? Could we for example supply consultants with current SC but who are prepared to be vetted for DV?
In relation to DV clearance, this is something that would need to be held from the start of the work. Due to the time frame for DV Clearance to be carried out it, we could not accommodate this.
