Clarifications

There are 9 clarifications for this DPS

1. In the DPS description, one of the points is the following; 'installation and warranty'. Can you confirm whether this DPS can be used to purchase hardware or is it only professional services for the installation of already owned hardware and/or cloud solutions.
This DPS is not intended to be used purely for the purchase of audio visual hardware. The guiding principles are that as a consultancy agreement, either the technical consultant or the commissioning supplier will procure all elements of the design plan and charge this to the buying organisation. Hardware can be procured under the DPS as an integral component of the designed solution or can be procured outside of it for example under Network Services 2. If the design plan only includes hardware and no additional services then it is possible to procure AV equipment under the DPS. If buying directly, the customer can select services type 2 and compete their requirement through that route.

2. Page 31 of the document "RM6225 AV Technical Consultancy and Commissioning DPS supplier registration webinar" lists risk flags as follows: "No Cyber Security before first contract No Cyber Essentials certificate before first contract No Cyber Essentials certificate before first contract". As my organisation does not yet have Cyber Essentials, but intends to register now and have this in place before the commencement of the first contract, may we therefore assume that it is acceptable to progress with our RM6225 registration in parallel?
Yes, that is correct.

5. Hello, Part 3 of the Selection questionnaire concerns 'supply of steel' - I am assuming this is an error? Please can you advise how to progress on section 3, please?
CCS can confirm that questions 147 - 149 (steel) are not applicable and therefore a response is not required. For further clarification please see point 73 on page 17 of 'READ FIRST RM6225 Audio Visual Technical Consultancy & Commissioning v1.0.pdf' contained in the DPS bidpack.

8. Can you please confirm that the supplied "Attachment 1 - Products and Services Matrix 1.0" is correct and applicable to this DPS as it is labelled RM6200 in sheet not RM6225.
We can confirm that the Attachment 1 - Products and Services Matrix is correct and applicable to this DPS. The wrong RM reference was quoted in v1.0, this should have said RM6225. We have uploaded a revised version (v1.1) to the Bid Pack.
