It was specified that relevant contracts demonstrating the supply of cumulative order quantity in any one financial year must be submitted with the bid to support the quantity supplied in the relevant financial year. Moreover, in the case of multiple bids, it was explained that the category related to the primary product with the highest bid value should meet this criterion.

The announcement mentioned that a reverse auction will be conducted among all technically qualified bidders, excluding the highest quoting bidder.
