On 22 September 2021 PSAA invited all principal local government including police and fire bodies to become opted-in authorities. At the same time it published its procurement strategy and prospectus for the national scheme from April 2023. Both documents have evolved in response to the feedback provided by the market engagement exercise and consultation on the draft prospectus undertaken during June 2021.
In the period between now and the anticipated publication of the Contract Notices in early February 2022, we will be holding two market engagement events via zoom for potential bidders. We encourage all suppliers with a potential interest in bidding to attend both events.
