Pre-contract Notification

It is good practice to notify bidders of any particular contract performance requirements or any essential award criteria early in the process.

This can be done by including details in the contract notice or a Prior Information Notice (PIN), so that they can take an early view on whether they can satisfy the requirements. These can be included at section V1.3 Additional Information of the Contract Notice.

Within the Annex are examples of vehicles and climate wording that may be used for this purpose.

These focus on vehicle and climate objectives within a Contracting Authority’ decarbonisation ambitions while also giving early sight of minimum requirements.
