These documents have been developed by Local Authority working groups in collaboration with the Regional Centres of Excellence by using existing good practice templates and refining them to incorporate the most recent legislation and recommended best practice.
The purpose of these templates is to:
(a) Provide Lincolnshire Authorities with a consistent series of standard template documents relating to procurement processes. The benefit from using a standard template is that it both saves time on each individual procurement and provides a good consistent base document.
(b) Develop over time a consistency of documentation emulating from Lincolnshire Authorities which provides suppliers, in particular Small and Medium Enterprise’s with a recognised format in which they are comfortable in responding against.
These are templates and inevitably each specific procurement may require some small customisation for that particular requirement. You should however revert back to the original template for each new procurement process.
These documents have been sourced primarily from the Office for Government Commerce and developed in good faith by various officers and are considered to be examples of good practice endorsed by the Regional Centres of Excellence (now known as RIEP).
