- Applicants currently not pre-qualified and interested to pre-qualify for either Group 1 or Group 2 Clusters (noting that the North West Cluster is currently being tendered and is therefore not available for new Applicants);

- Applicants intending to re-arrange their pre-qualified consortia.
Submission deadline: all Applicants must submit their SOQ's by [8 March, 2020]. Please note that pre-qualified Applicants satisfied with their current pre-qualification do not need to submit any new SOQ.
