How an agency can make additional information available to suppliers participating in a procurement.
- An agency may make additional information available to all participating suppliers after a Notice of Procurement is published on GETS and before the deadline for responses closes.
- An agency may publish additional information on GETS or, following a shortlisting, send copies to all participating suppliers.
- An agency must make additional information available to all participating suppliers at the same time.
Examples of participating suppliers
The participating suppliers may be different at each stage of a procurement.
An example of when all participating suppliers are known to the agency could be the second stage of a multi-step tender.
This is where the agency has published a Registration of Interest and, after receiving and evaluating the responses, has shortlisted suppliers. The agency then invites the shortlisted suppliers to submit full tenders. These suppliers are all participating suppliers known to the agency.
