All Bidders must complete the Part 1 and Part 2 forms in their entirety. A Bidder that was notified in a Spring 2014 procurement event that it had successfully completed the Part 1 Proposal is said to have “previously qualified”. Such a Bidder is generally eligible to participate in an abbreviated process to submit the Part 1 Proposal.
Generally speaking, previously qualified Bidders may rely on the information submitted in the Spring 2014 procurement events for their Part 1 Proposal, except that they must submit anew for the September 2014 procurement events: (1) financial statements; (2) information regarding their Nominees; and (3) appropriate certifications for each Company. Previously qualified Bidders must update any previously submitted information as necessary or confirm that the previously submitted information remains valid.
All Bidders, whether previously qualified or not, must provide all information required by the Part 2 Proposal.
