Notices To Tenderers
1. You are invited to tender, in accordance with the following Conditions, for the supply of
Deliverables detailed in the accompanying ITT Material. This ITT has been issued only to the
addressee; it is not an invitation to participate in competitive tendering. Any inferred reference to
competitive tendering in this document is to be construed as a reference to a single tender.The
issue of an ITT is not a commitment by the Secretary of State for Defence - ‘the Authority’ -
to place an order as a result of the tendering exercise or at a later stage. Any expenditure,
work or effort undertaken prior to an offer of Contract and acceptance thereof, is a matter
solely for the commercial judgement of your company. The Authority reserves the right

b. waive or change the requirements of this ITT from time to time without prior (or any)
notice being given by the Authority;
c. seek clarification or documents in respect of a Tenderer's submission;

the instructions in this ITT;
e. disqualify any Tenderer that is guilty of serious misrepresentation in relation to its

g. choose not to award any Contract as a result of the current procurement process;

procurement process, depending on approvals processes or for any other reason.
2. The Tenderer is advised that the MOD may wish to publicise the award of the Contract for
the requirement described in the Schedule of Requirements in the attached Purchase Order.
3. Any Tenderer who wishes to make a similar announcement, either coincident with or

(Commercial Officer) named in the Purchase Order. The content of any announcement a
successful Tenderer may wish to make must be cleared in writing and in advance by the MOD
Authority’s Representative (Commercial Officer) named in the Purchase Order who shall liaise
with the MOD Security branch responsible for clearance of publicity material for open publication.
4. If the notice inviting tenders was advertised in Contracts Finder, the MOD will publish the
following information on the Contract awarded unless the MOD decides that there are specific
and valid reasons for not doing so:
a. Contractor’s Name;
b. Nature of the Deliverables to be supplied;
c. Award criteria;
d. Rationale for Contract award;
e. Total price of the Contract awarded.
5. Under no circumstances should a successful Tenderer(s) confirm to any third party the fact
of their acceptance of an offer of Contract prior to informing the MOD of their acceptance, and / or
ahead of the MOD's announcement of the award of Contract. Codes of Practice
The attention of Tenderers is drawn to the agreements that have been reached by the MOD /
Industry Commercial Policy Group (CPG) on Codes of Practice. The Codes of Practice are
intended to demonstrate a commitment by the MOD and its suppliers to the establishment of
better working relationships in the supply chain, based on openness and trust. The opportunity
also exists for Tenderers to advertise any subcontract valued at over £10,000 in the Defence
Sourcing Portal and further details can be obtained directly from:
https://www.gov.uk/guidance/subcontract-advertising. This process is managed by the Strategic
Supplier Management team who can be contacted at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Submission of Tender

1. Small and Medium-sized Enterprises
The Authority is committed to supporting the
Government’s small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) initiative; its ambitious target is that
every £1 in every £3 that the Government spends should be with small businesses by 2020. Our
goal is that 25% of MOD spending should be spent with SMEs by 2020; this applies to the money
which the MOD spends directly with SMEs and through the supply chain. The Authority uses the
European Commission definition of an SME.A key aspect of the Government’s SME Policy is
ensuring that its suppliers throughout the supply chain are paid promptly. All suppliers to the
Authority and their sub-contractors are encouraged to make their own commitment and register
with the Prompt Payment Code. Suppliers are also encouraged to work with the Authority to
support the Authority’s SME initiative. Information on the Authority’s purchasing arrangements,
our commercial policies and our SME policy can be found at Gov.UK.
The prices quoted for the Deliverables and Packaging must be set out in strict
accordance with the requirements of the Schedule to the Purchase Order. The Tenderer shall
include in their Tender any additional information regarding their quotation price breakdown,
equality of information etc. as requested elsewhere in this ITT Material
3. Orders for Parts of the Tender
The Authority reserves the right, unless the Tenderer
expressly states that parts of the Tender may not be accepted separately in their tender
order some or all of the Deliverables stated in the Schedule to the Purchase Order.
4. Alternative Conditions
The Tenderer shall comply with the notices and instructions set
out in this ITT and submit a tender compliant with the MOD Terms and Conditions for Less
Complex Requirements. Any offer made subject to additional or alternative contractual conditions
will not be considered and will be rejected on the grounds of those conditions alone.
5. Tender Evaluation
The Tender evaluation shall be carried out in accordance with the
Evaluation Criteria stated in the ITT Tender documentation. The Authority can only evaluate
those things stated in your Tender.
6. Alterations to Purchase Order
Any alteration to the Purchase Order suggested by the
Tenderer e.g. an alternative Delivery offer, should be effected by striking through the original
entry and inserting the alternative adjacent to it. The Tenderer's attention is, however, drawn to
paragraphs 3 to 5 above.
7. Completion of Tender
a. In the event of a Deliverable appearing more than once in the attached Schedule of
Requirements, whether separately or as part of an assembly, the Tenderer is requested to
quote on the basis of the total quantity for that Deliverable.
b. The Tenderer should ensure that their tender is clear and in a form which will allow
the Authority to take copies for evaluation purposes.
8. Tenders for Selected Deliverables
Tenders need not necessarily be for all the
Deliverables listed in the Schedule to the Purchase Order. The words “No Tender” should be
inserted in the price column against items for which no offer is made.
9. Bid costs
The Tenderer will bear all costs associated with preparing and submitting their
Tender. If the Tender process is terminated or amended by the Authority, the Tenderer will not
10. ITT Material
a. ITT Material means information (including for example, drawings, handbooks,
manuals, instructions, specifications and notes of pre-tender clarification meetings, in
whatever form or medium, patterns and samples) issued to you by the Authority or on its
behalf, or to which you have been given access, for the purposes of responding to this ITT.
ITT Material remains the property of the Authority or other owners and is released solely for
the purpose of tendering. The Tenderer shall notify the Authority’s Representative
(Commercial Officer) without delay if any additional ITT Material is required for the purpose
of tendering. The Tenderer shall be responsible for the safe custody and due return of ITT
Material, and shall be responsible for all loss or damage sustained while in their care, and
until re-delivered to the Authority.
b. Destruction of ITT Material
You must immediately confirm destruction of (or in the
case of software, that it is beyond use) all ITT Documentation, ITT Material and derived
information of an unmarked nature, should you decide not to respond to this ITT, or you are
notified by the Authority that your Tender has been unsuccessful.
c. Intellectual Property Rights in ITT Material
The Intellectual Property Rights in ITT
Material may belong to the Authority or a third party. The ITT Material may only be used for
the purpose of responding to this ITT and shall not be copied, or disclosed to anyone other
than employees of the Tenderer involved in the preparation of the tender, without the prior
written approval of the Authority. If the Tenderer discloses the ITT Material other than to
employees involved in the tender preparation, or uses the ITT Material other than for the
purpose of tendering, the Authority, or the third party owner, may suffer damage for which
compensation may be sought from the Tenderer.
d. Confidentiality Agreements
Some or all of the ITT Material issued in connection
with this ITT may already be the subject of Confidentiality Agreements. The provisions of
such agreements are in addition to, and not in substitution for, any obligations arising from
receipt of or access to ITT Material under the terms of this ITT, and the provisions of sub-
paragraphs 10.a - c above.
a. Where it is indicated in Annex B that samples may be required for evaluation, the
Tenderer must be prepared to submit them without charge. Samples should be clearly
labelled with the following particulars:
(1) The Tenderer's name and address.
(2) The ITT Reference Number and Tender return date.
(3) Description and Item Number as shown in the Schedule to the Purchase
b. The Authority shall retain all samples for 12 months
. After this period the
Authority shall destroy the samples unless you specifically state you require their return.
The sample of any subsequent contracts shall be kept indefinitely.
12. Notification of Inventions etc.
The Tenderer acknowledges that their prices shall include the use of any
intellectual property rights which they own or control to the extent that their use is required for the
performance of any resultant Contract. The Tenderer also acknowledges that their prices include
subsequent use by the Authority of anything delivered under the Contract.
In their tender the Tenderer shall notify the Authority of:
(1) any invention or design the subject of patent or registered design rights (or
application therefore) of which the Tenderer is aware , and;
(2) any other restriction (including any export requirement or restriction) as to
disclosure or use or obligation to make payments in respect of intellectual property
(including technical information) to which the Tenderer is subject, and;
(3) any allegation of infringement of intellectual property rights made against the
which pertains to or appears to be relevant to the performance of any resultant
Contract or to subsequent use by the Authority of anything required to be done or
delivered under any resultant Contract.
c. The Tenderer shall, at the request of the Authority, give the Authority particulars of
every restriction and obligation referred to in sub-paragraph 12.b.(2) above.
d. If the information required under this paragraph 12 has been provided previously, the
Tenderer may satisfy these requirements by giving details of the previous notification.
13. Ozone Depleting Substances
The Tenderer must state whether the Contractor
Deliverables or any item provided in accordance with the Terms and Conditions of the Contract
(including Packaging) use Substances that deplete the Ozone Layer, as defined in Regulation
(EC) 1005/2009, as it applies in Great Britain as retained EU law, and as it applies in Northern
14. Hazardous Deliverables and Substances
It is a condition of this ITT that where the ITT
calls for, or the Tenderer proposes, the use of Hazardous Deliverables or substances, the
Tenderer shall provide with their tender a completed Safety Data Sheet in accordance with
Clause 9 of the Terms and Conditions. Failure to comply fully with this condition may result in the
tender being deemed non-compliant thus rendering it ineligible for further consideration by the
15. Elimination Of Asbestos
It is a condition of this ITT that the Deliverables shall not
incorporate asbestos of any kind. The Tenderer will confirm this by signing and returning the
tender form at Annex A to this ITT as part of their tender.
16. Transparency, Freedom of Information and Environmental Information Regulations
a. Tenderers should be aware that, if they are awarded the Contract, the content of the
Contract may be published by the MOD to the general public in line with government policy
set out in the Prime Minister’s letter of May 2010
b. Before publishing the Contract, the MOD will redact any information which would be
exempt from disclosure if it was the subject of a request for information under the Freedom
of Information Act 2000 (“the FOIA”) or the Environmental Information Regulations 2002
c. The FOIA and the EIR provide a more general statutory right of access to information
held by or on behalf of public authorities, including information provided by third parties
such as suppliers. This right of access is subject to a number of exemptions, including
confidential information and commercially sensitive information. Further details of MOD
policy on FOIA and EIR can be found on the Acquisition Operating Framework
(https://www.aof.mod.uk/aofcontent/tactical/toolkit/index.htm click on "Commercial Toolkit"
then "MOD Commercial Management" then "Freedom of Information").
d. In order to assist the MOD in applying the exemptions in the FOIA and the EIR,
Tenderers should complete the appropriate Tenderer’s Commercially Sensitive Information
box in the Purchase Order, explaining which parts of their tender they consider to be
sensitive or confidential. Tenderers are also requested to include in the box the details of a
named individual who may be contacted with regard to this information.
e. Tenderers should note that, while their views will be taken into consideration, the
ultimate decision whether to publish or disclose information provided to the MOD lies with
the MOD. Tenderers are advised to give as much detail as possible on the Purchase
Order. It is highly unlikely that a contract will be exempt from disclosure in its entirety.
Should the MOD decide to publish or disclose information against the wishes of a Tenderer,
the Tenderer will be given prior notification.
17. Consultation with Credit Reference Agencies
The Authority may consult credit
reference agencies to assess the creditworthiness of a Tenderer. Information on creditworthiness
may be used by the MOD to support and influence decisions to enter into business with a
Any Tenderer who directly or indirectly seeks to persuade any officer,
member, employee, or agent of the MOD concerning this procurement except by responding to
this ITT or who directly or indirectly obtains or attempts to obtain information from any such
officer, member, employee or agent of the MOD concerning any other Tenderer, tender or
proposed tender concerning this procurement before the end of the selection process will be
disqualified from consideration for this procurement.
19. Conflicts of Interest
a. MOD policy states that it is sometimes in the MOD’s wider business interests to allow
suppliers to operate on both the client and supply side. Conflicts of Interest (CoI) can occur
outside of direct commercial relationships between the MOD and its suppliers and therefore
all personnel involved in acquisition (both Authority and Tenderer) should be familiar with
the Conflicts of Interest Commercial Policy Statement (CPS).
b. Accordingly, Tenderers shall notify immediately the Authority of any current or
potential CoI relating to the requirement and shall give particulars of every instance.
c. Where the Authority permits the Tenderer or any entity within the Tenderer’s
potential supply chain or any entity providing advisory services to the Tenderer or its
potential supply chain to work on both the client and supply side, the Contractor shall, as a
legally binding agreement or Condition of Contract, be required to:
(1) Adopt a formally agreed, legally binding, Compliance Regime (CR) between
the Authority and the Contractor. This shall include but not be limited to:
(a) Manner of operation and management;
(b) Roles and responsibilities;
(c) Standards for integrity and fair dealing;
(d) Levels of access to and protection of competitors’ sensitive information
and Government Furnished Information;
(e) Confidentiality / Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDA’s)(e.g. DEFFORM
(f) The Authority rights of audit;
(g) Physical and Managerial separation.
(2) Identify potential or actual Conflicts of Interest;
(3) Investigate breaches.
20. Collusive Behaviour
The Tenderer’s attention is drawn to the requirements of the
Competition Act 1998, Part 1. Any Tenderer found to have been part of a ‘Concerted Practice’ or
‘Agreement’, the purpose of which was to prevent, restrict or distort competition, shall be
disqualified from consideration from this procurement. Disqualification will be without prejudice to
any to any civil remedy available to the Authority or criminal liability which the conduct of the
Tenderer may attract.
Any Tenderer who offers to pay or give or does pay or give any sum or sums of
money, inducement or valuable consideration directly or indirectly to any party for doing or having
done or causing or having caused to be done, any act or omission concerning this tender shall be
disqualified. Disqualification will be without prejudice to any to any civil remedy available to the
Authority or criminal liability which the conduct of the Tenderer may attract.
22. Authority Remedies for Breach of Contract
Tenderers should be aware of the
contractual remedies set out at Clause 17 of the Terms and Conditions of the Contract which may
apply in the event of a breach of Contract by the Contractor. Damages for breach of contract are
not limited under the contract. However Tenderers should also note under Clause 17 that in
exercising its rights and remedies under the contract the Authority must act in a reasonable and
proportionate manner having regard to the nature and consequences of the breach of contract. If
Tenderers are unsure about the potential liability under the contract, they should seek advice as
23. Cyber Essentials Accreditation
For all new requirements advertised from 1st January
2016 which entail the transfer of MOD identifiable information from customer to supplier or the
generation of information by a supplier specifically in support of the MOD contract, MOD will
require suppliers to have a Cyber Essentials certificate by the contract start date at the latest, and
for it to be renewed annually. This requirement must be flowed down the supply chain.
In this context ‘information’ means any information in any written or other tangible form disclosed
to one party by or on behalf of the other party under or in connection with the Contract, including
information provided in the tender or negotiations which preceded the award of the Contract.
Please notify the Authority as soon as you become aware of any issues with Supply Chain ability
to comply with Cyber Essentials.

Invitation to Tender
Special Notices and Instructions to Tenderers
1. The contents of this Invitation to Tender must not be disclosed to un-authorised persons and
must be used only for the purposes of tendering.
2. In addition to the Notices and Instructions specified elsewhere in the Invitation to Tender (ITT)
the following shall also apply:
IR35 off payroll working rules are not considered to apply to this requirement unless the Winning
Tenderer indicates that the personnel who will be used to deliver Services will not be employed
through their payroll. In those circumstances, a relevant assessment will be raised.
A Cyber Risk Assessment has been raised for this requirement under Assessment number RAR-
6DFT8KDF. The associated Cyber Risk Profile is ‘very low’’.
Where a Cyber Risk Assessment has been raised, Tenderers must complete a Supplier Assurance
Questionnaire against this Cyber Risk Assessment, online at https://supplier-cyber-

part of the tender submission.
Further guidance on the Cyber Risk process can be found in the Cyber Security Model Industry
Buyer and Supplier Guide at

Risk Assessment, this does not prevent submission of a Tender. In those circumstances, a Cyber
Implementation Plan should be completed as part of the tender submission, to demonstrate what
actions will be taken to meet the required Cyber Risk level. Provided the actions and timescales
were considered acceptable to The Authority, the Cyber Implementation Plan would then be
