Pre-qualification process for potential bidders in the Switching Programme


The Switching Programme is now in the Enactment phase and DCC will be commencing the procurement of services.

An initial pre-qualification stage will be used to shortlist applicants to receive an Invitation to Tender (ITT) for the services being procured.

A selection (pre-qualification) questionnaire (PQQ) will be published on 22nd June 2018 for applicants to complete and submit online. The deadline for submission will be 13th July 2018. The responses will be evaluated, and applicants will be shortlisted to receive the ITT.

The online selection questionnaire will include two reference documents:

  • A prospectus document - This explains the background and objectives of the Switching Programme along with details of the scope of services being procured; and
  • A selection questionnaire guidance document - This outlines the prequalification process, instructs how to complete the questionnaire and details the prequalification selection process. It also includes an ITT timetable.

Please note that your organisation will need to sign a confidentiality agreement with DCC in order to participate in the PQQ and subsequent tender process.
