It should be noted that the issue of this RFT does not in any way commit Westmeath Community Development to any course of action including the actual delivery of a proposed module, nor does admittance to the panel imply that the panel member will be awarded a contract during the lifetime of the panel. When a need for a specific programme or modules materialises, approved panel members may be awarded a contract for the delivery of these services upon agreement on costings and programme specific details.
Submissions will be evaluated on the information provided at the time of tender.
