Questions asked by suppliers
Supplier question Buyer answer
1. Can you please confirm that essential requirements 5. ("Extensive experience of programme management of SPINE compliant NHS Electronic Medical Records Systems") and 6. ("Experience of healthcare delivery within Defence Medical Services") have both been correctly categorised as 'essential' rather than 'nice to have'? If essential, this is likely to significantly limit the number of suppliers eligible to respond to this opportunity. Yes, these are essential criteria. It is extremely important to us that whatever team we engage fully understands the complexities, detail and background of the work that we do.
