Where a customer has additional or more complex requirements which cannot be fully described in the site data validation sheet (for example, value added services such as SMR/SMI, different pricing options etc.) then customers will need to complete a long order form giving full details of their requirement. In those cases, it will be the customer's responsibility to run their own further competition. Evaluation will be a combination of quality and price.
