Clarifications

There are 8 clarifications for this DPS

Can you clarify Attachment 5 ( Group of Economic Operators) and Attachment 4 ( Additional Sub Contractors) do not need to be submitted at SQ stage if we are proposing to enter into this as a Sole Bidder? Furthermore, you acknowledge that Sub Contracting arrangements may change over time, will you allow Sole Bidders to add Subcontractors at a later date?
Attachment 4 (Additional Subcontractors) should be completed if you have more than 35 Subcontractors that you are detailing within the SelectionQuestionnaire (SQ). Detail the first 35 in the SQ and any additional Subcontractors over 35 must be recorded on this Attachment 4. Attachment 5 (Group of Economic Operators) should be completed if you havemore than 10 Economic Operators that you are detailing within the Selection Questionnaire (SQ). Detail the first 10 in the SQ and any additional over 10 must be recorded on this Attachment 5. Suppliers can obtain new subcontractors if a contract is live. However, they must fulfil their contractual obligations in accordance with Joint Schedule 6 (Key Subcontractors). Clause 1.3 relates specifically to when a supplier wishes to enter into a new Key Sub-contract or replace a Key Subcontractor, and the requirement to obtain the prior written consent of CCS and the Buyer.

Selection Questionnaire 113 Part 3: CESG Cyber Certifications 163. Which of the following CESG cyber certifications is your organisation planning to apply for? Please tick all that apply My organisation does not intend to apply for 2 of the CESG cyber certifications. Can I therefore leave these 2 blank as there is no N/A functionality for this section
There is no 'N/A' functionality for these questions as you are required to select Cyber Essentials Certificate and/or Cyber Essentials Plus Certificate as you must provide a copy of this to CCS at award of the first contract. Please refer to 'DPS Schedule 9 - Cyber Essentials Scheme' paragraph 2.1

Selection Questionnaire 132- Would you be able to obtain a guarantee elsewhere (e.g. from a bank)? If answers to 130 and 131 are Yes, what do you advise for 132 as there is no option for a N/A
You are still required to confirm 'yes' or for Q132, even if your answers to Q130 and Q131 are also 'yes'. If you cannot obtain a guarantee elsewhere please select 'No'.
