Dear Zoe,

Thank you for your response. This is a separate follow-up request. Can you please clarify the revisions by the DSTL to the terms and conditions of the Invitation to Tender (ITT). Ideally, this would involve providing the original ITT and revised ITT, but short of this, an explanation of the revisions would suffice. Please give this information with a index of relating documents.

Thank you,

Oliver Banks
