Central Procurement Directorate on behalf of its client Invest NI invites tenders for the provision of patent novelty search reports.
The volume of searches to be completed will vary from one month to the next but is likely to be in the region of 10-25 per month. The volume of searches is driven by client demand rather than by Invest NI.
It is anticipated that the contract will commence in October or November 2009 and will be for one year with the option to extend for two further periods of one year, subject to the agreement of both parties and a review of performance.
Tender documents can be obtained electronically for registered users of Central Procurement Directorate’s e-sourcing system, e-sourcing NI.
