Question details
Non-Disclosure Agreement Submission/Location of Document
We are working on our tender documentation for 16.CAT .OP .187. In the Specifications document we were sent with the invitation to tender it states on page 9 that a number of references are available for us to use in the development. In order to get these documents it states we are required to email this email address with a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA), to be found in the Annexes. However, in the Annexes it lists the NDA (if applicable) is found at Annex 4.8 and our pack only goes up to 4.7 Draft Contract (which is blank). We also do not have Annex 4.9 Security Information Sheet (but perhaps we do not require that in this case). Please can you advise if we do need to complete an NDA for this tender and if so where I can find it?
