The objectives of the market engagement are to: establish potential future procurement options available to the Department, gather market intelligence with regard to supplier capabilities, and enable a decision-making process to determine if a Departmental Solar PV Framework is 1) required and 2) would be beneficial.

No funding has been allocated as this work is being carried out through the Department’s capital direct sourcing team’s business as usual activities and forms part of their five year procurement programme.
