Industry – how to get involved

Interested parties should familiarise themselves with the Nightingale Common Challenge document and complete an interested parties questionnaire. 

Nightingale’s Prior Information Notice (PIN) sets out the procurement process and provides potential suppliers with as much information as possible ahead of the Open Market Consultation meetings where feedback from completed questionnaires will form the agenda. Click on the link above to download a PDF version of the PIN; the PIN is also published on the Tenders Electronic Daily website.

A list of published research that outlines the issues Nightingale hopes to address can be read here. Interested parties are strongly advised to attend one of the open market consultation meetings.
