Q1: Our company, along with the rest of the industry, closes from mid-December to Mid-January, making a deadline of 13 January 2020 unrealistic. These vehicle conversions also incorporate many fittings and fixtures which need to be sourced from suppliers who are closed during this period. Would you be willing to re-examine your deadline?
A1: NACOSA will consider bids that are unable to meet the deadline in the TOR. If you are unable to meet the deadline but would still like to bid, please ensure that you clearly state your estimated delivery date.
Q2: Delivery Date of 13 January 2020 is unattainable due to year end shut down. Would you consider bids with a later delivery date?
A2: NACOSA will consider bids that are unable to meet the deadline in the TOR. If you are unable to meet the deadline but would still like to bid, please ensure that you clearly state your estimated delivery date.
