Questions asked by suppliers

Questions asked by suppliers
Supplier question Buyer answer
1. Does the proposed candidate need to have current CTC / SC Clearance? The candidate will be expected to be able to achieve CTC clearance at a minimum however not having CTC at this point will not be used to exclude any potential candidate.
2. To help understand if new suppliers can compete equally, are your incumbent suppliers or contract agencies permitted to bid for this opportunity. We cannot exclude any supplier from bidding from the work and we would expect the current incumbent to bid
3. Is experience specifically of Clarity an essential. We have a candidate who has worked using a number of other tools, but not Clarity. Experience of Clarity is an essential, there is an aggressive implementation plan that we need to meet and knowing the specific tool is deemed necessary
