FAQ - Will I be asked for proof that my ESPD self-declaration is true?
By law, a winning bidder has to submit all of the required certificates and documentation before they are awarded a contract. Bidders can be asked to submit their evidence at any point in the procurement process, if this is necessary to ensure that the process is carried out properly. In a Restricted, or two-stage, procedure, it is likely that those bidders which are shortlisted will be asked to submit their evidence at that stage.
From 18 October 2018, bidders will not be requested to submit supporting documentation which an organisation already has in its possession.
