CHANGES TO TENDER RESPONSE REQUIREMENTS:
Previously referee contact details were required as part of your tender submission in the tender response worksheet (TRW- excel sheet with products and pricing) and HPV phoned and emailed all references
HPV will be introducing conditional award. Conditional Award is when an item is listed conditionally, it cannot be purchased by a health service but it can be trialed and evaluated and once this evaluation has taken place if there demand the supplier/ health service can request that the item be moved to full award.
Two instances where conditional award may be applied
HPV will publish the conditionally awarded items in the pricing schedule to ensure health services have visibility of the list of both full award and conditionally listed items and to expedite process of transitioning to full award, where required. Health services will be informed that they can trial conditionally awarded items (and non-contracted) and any stage of the contract.
HPV will be increasing the mandatory minimum requirements for the upcoming tender. This will include financial viability assessment checks, quality management certification requirements and cleaning guides (approved/ non approved agents for all products tendered)
This will be discussed further at the upcoming industry briefing.
