As a Start-up you might find it difficult to complete your application to join the Digital Marketplace. This guide gives you some tips about how to complete your application.
You need to provide an up-to-date financial statement. As start-ups won’t always have this yet, you have the option of providing a letter from your accountant that confirms your financial viability.
As a Start-up you might not have suitable case studies yet.
To show the capability of your people, you can use work completed by your key personnel in previous roles.
If you do that, you need to be clear in the case study that the work was not done by your new business. And make sure your former organisation is happy for you to use the example for your case study.
As you build a portfolio of work you should update your case studies with more up-to-date and relevant examples.
Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance
You must have professional indemnity and public liability insurance before you’re engaged in any work by Government buyers.
At our discretion we may allow you to join the Digital Marketplace without these policies in place, but only in limited circumstances.
Generally, this is only permitted if you are a very new business and would not otherwise have been anticipated to have these policies.
In these circumstances you must confirm that you will be eligible to take out suitable policies before any buyer engages you.
You must provide your state’s relevant workers compensation certification.
If you are not eligible to register for workers’ compensation you should provide a signed declaration that you are ineligible.
