Stage One: Supply Chain Framework Application form. This application will be scored and successful
applicants will be eligible to apply for partnership opportunities as and when they arise.
Stage two: On the release of each Contract PQQ or ITT all members of our Supply Chain Framework will
be asked to complete a contract specific EOI which reflects that specific tender priorities.
