The Dublin Dental University Hospital is currently seeking submissions from
suitably qualified suppliers for supply of examination gloves on a draw down basis
as and when required. Approximately 1.6 million nitrile healthcare examination
gloves are used annually (quantities based on 2014 usage and for guidance
purposes only). The quantities stated are a best estimate of the total annual
requirement. Appendix 1 provides current breakdown of usage by size. This
competition will have two phases. Phase 1 will be used to appraise, rank and
select five tenderers for shortlisting and evaluation. This phase will be weighted
at 50% of the total. In phase 2 the five top scoring suppliers will be invited to
provide sample product (at cost to the supplier) for internal inspection and clinical
testing and evaluation. This phase will also be weighted at 50%.
Tenders must be completed in compliance with this Invitation to Tender and the
tender documents enclosed. All information relating to this invitation to tender,
including tender documentation, clarification and changes will be published on the
etenders / OJEU website only. Last date for receipt of invitation to tender
questions is 13 February 2015.
