Contact shortlisted sellers
This step is done outside the Digital Marketplace. Email the sellers you've shortlisted to request the information required for evaluation, such as proposal, case studies and referees. For more complex or higher value procurement, you may prefer to take a more formal approach with a request for quote.
What to ask for
- For a Digital Outcome brief, invite shortlisted sellers to provide proposals. Make sure you give them a reasonable amount of time to prepare these.
- For Digital Specialists, invite candidates for interview.
What you ask for must match the 'Assessment methods' you originally outlined in your brief.
