Applications received will be processed by C&ED. Subject to confirmation of their credentials, those firms that are found acceptable will be included in the C&ED Supplier Lists. Their continued inclusions in these lists will depend on their demonstrated ability to offer competitive tenders and their performance in connection with any order(s) or contract(s) which they have been awarded. C&ED reserves the right to review the status of a firm as a C&ED Supplier in the light of any new information that may affect such status.

Firms in the C&ED Supplier Lists will normally receive notification on tender issued for the supply of category(ies) of goods or services, for which they have been included as suppliers, as and when opportunities arise.
