Procurement Update

As part of satisfying State Aid requirements, Connecting Devon and Somerset (CDS) is required to announce the launch of its invitation to tender (ITT) for the selection of its chosen supplier from the recent Framework arrangement set up by BDUK. The PDF document (click on the image on the left to view) contains a summary of the CDS project aims, maps for the intervention area, details of the number of premises in scope, and the criteria and weightings that CDS will use to score supplier submissions in response to the ITT.

An updated indicative timetable is also provided to explain the next steps in our procurement, when the supplier selection process will end and most importantly, when the project will ‘go live’. This is an important and exciting stage of the CDS project and we will update this website with more details as it progresses.

COVID-19 Info

Whilst measures to contain COVID-19 continue to evolve, CDS will attempt to maintain a Business As Usual approach, though there may be some unavoidable impact on our ability to respond to queries.
