Following the supplier engagement event, the RFI will be issued to registered parties via HMRC's eSourcing tool 'MyBuy' (SAP Ariba). The RFI will include a number of questions that HMRC is looking to the market to respond to. The answers to these questions by interested parties will be critically important in assisting HMRC to formulate its requirements for any future procurement process. HMRC is keen to ensure that its requirements for this novel and exciting procurement are aligned to market expectations. HMRC is particularly interested in hearing from parties that have achieved outcomes of a similar nature, including those that have delivered increased value through economies of scale, operational efficiencies and/or alternative methods of delivering service in respect of similar projects. Details of how to register your organisation's interest in participating in the RFI via SAP Ariba are provided under the 'Additional Information' set out below in this Notice. The RFI will be released to registered parties on 28th September 2021, and responses are required by no later than 12th October 2021. To the extent that interested parties are able to respond before this date, we would be most grateful. HMRC invites interested parties to register using the guidance below.
