Questions asked by suppliers

Questions asked by suppliers
Supplier question Buyer answer
1. Our ceiling charge is lower than one of our specialists financial requirements, are we able to alter the day rate if successful please? Shortlisting of applications will be based on the confirmed price included within the submission, as identified in the evaluation weighting. Health Education England (HEE) seeks excellent value for money from suppliers.

Note – I’m afraid that the first part of the question did not make sense to me ‘Our ceiling charge is lower than one of our specialists financial requirements’.
