CCS wishes to introduce an electronic management system, to act as an interface between food producers, suppliers, processors and logistic suppliers to facilitate access for Public Sector bodies to primary food producers, suppliers and processors regardless of their capacity and capability to meet individual Government contracts.
Therefore we are seeking a Technology & Management Supplier with an automated Technology Platform that operates in real time, that routes, orders, quotes, invoices and queries electronically and provides the detailed management information as described below.
This questionnaire is to gauge capability and capacity of technology suppliers to provide a developed proven product. Any information gathered will be treated as 'commercial in confidence' and will only be used for the purposes of developing the agreement. Therefore, it is appreciated if you could take time to respond where possible and return the questionnaire.
Any questions or comments, please email Food@crowncommercial.gov.uk
