Questions asked by suppliers

Questions asked by suppliers
Supplier question Buyer answer
1. I noticed the latest start date is written as 18/8; is this a mistake considering this was posted today, and the application closing date is closer to the end of the month? I did not realise the process would take 2 weeks so the start date would be Thursday 1st September
2. Is this a requirement for a digital (online) solution to assist the Trust or is it Business (Clinical) Process Consultancy that is required? This is for Consultancy supporting to deliver large change and productivity programme of work with intuitive IT solutions to support this programme
