Questions asked by suppliers

Questions asked by suppliers
Supplier question Buyer answer
1. The initial design and requirements have been completed by ourselves. We require this piece of work to be completed to validate our thinking of the proposed solution and if it fits Government Standards for security. We expect this engagement to be around the 5 x day mark. The deliverable of this is to check the proposed design which will be completed by the end of March 2019, we would expect this validation to be completed by the end of April 2019.
2. Do you expect this to be a continuous piece of work for approximately five days of work?
Can you confirm that as well as the design documents, access will be granted to key members of your staff as and when necessary?
This is an estimation of the time we think that it would take to review the High Level design is fit for purpose from a security perspective.

Key staff will be available at all times during the engagement.
