|A supplier raised concerns about a procurement that Great Yarmouth Borough Council was running for the design of housing across three sites. The supplier felt there was information missing from the tender which would prevent them from being able to bid.||The authority responded promptly and stated that there was an opportunity to raise queries during the tender process where further information could have been provided within the required timescales. Further information was uploaded onto the portal ahead of the tender deadline although this would not have been seen by an supplier that had decided to withdraw from the process prior to upload. We recommended that all information should be uploaded at the start of the process so all potential participants would have access to the same information at the same time. Whilst the authority did not have the resources internally to conduct an early feasibility study, this is something that should be considered in the future.
