Questions asked by suppliers

Questions asked by suppliers
Supplier question Buyer answer
1. How will suppliers bid prices (daily rates) be scored? This will be 30% of the evaluation score
2. What deliverables will the Data Analyst be responsible for producing over the coming 6 months? The scope (including deliverables) is included in the request.
3. What modelling tools does the team plan to use? Current plan is to use SPARX
4. What are the business objectives of the transformation programme? PART 1 RESPONSE:
We continue to develop an immigration system which is fair to people here legally, but firm with those who break the rules.

By 2020, IE will be at the centre of a wide range of government action and partnership working that ensures there is a consequence for every person living in the UK illegally, every person failing to comply with their visa conditions, every foreign national committing crime in the UK and every criminal profiting from illegal migration.
5. What are the business objectives of the transformation programme? PART 2:
This approach combines making residing in the UK unlawfully extremely difficult, will encourage more migrants to comply with immigration law or leave of their own accord. We will ensure vulnerable people receive the support they require, along with those who wish to return home voluntarily.Those choosing to remain will face arrest, prosecution and removal. We will ensure those who present the highest risk are subject to the toughest action.

It’s in everyone’s interests we tackle illegal migration effectively. It harms communities, damages those who try to do the right thing, and is often linked to exploitation and crime
