To keep the practicalities as simple as possible, the public authority could moderate, for example, the top three scorers only through reference site visits. The following tools offer guidance on needs assessments and other preparatory steps required to lay the foundation for an effective paralegal program. No, this is not possible. Other details in the OJEU notice such as estimated contract value should have also taken account of your potential involvement.
