Questions asked by suppliers

1. Can the Authority confirm where this work will be carried out as the ITT states that it can be done remotely but then states that it will be done predominantly from Authority offices in London?
This will need to be confirmed with the Supplier. It is likely that most meetings will be held at the ARP office base in London. However, the Supplier will be able to work remotely, as agreed with the Authority.
2. No further questions will be answered via this portal. Please go to the BipDelta eSourcing platform if you wish to submit a query.
