How to tender

Tenderers need to read the procurement document carefully, including any appendices. If a tenderer has any questions about the contents, for example, if something is unclear, we encourage them to inform the University in writing as soon as possible via the procurement system so that clarifications or supplementary statements can be made if necessary.

You submit your tender electronically in the procurement system, in the manner and in accordance with the terms specified in the procurement document. Tenders that deviate from the set requirements or contain reservations to the set terms and conditions may be rejected. Tenderers must check that their tender includes all the information requested.
