Invitation to Tender for Insurance and Risk Cover Services

East Midlands Chamber (Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire) is reviewing its insurance arrangements from 31 July 2015 onwards.

The Chamber will return to the market to achieve the following objectives:

  • Market testing
  • Possible cost reduction
  • Compliance with best practice
  • Fresh ideas and approach
  • Excellent client service
  • Ready access to specialist insurance advice

The purpose of this communication is to invite your organisation to enter the tendering process for the provision of insurance services by completing a Pre-Qualification Questionnaire (PQQ). This is the first stage of a two part procurement process.

The companies for which insurance services are required are:-

  • Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Chamber of Commerce and Industry Ltd - trading as East Midlands Chamber (Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire)
  • East Midlands Chambers of Commerce (an associate company of the Chamber)

All fully subscribed members of the Chamber, who are providers of insurance services, are being invited to submit a PQQ. A shortlist will then be drawn up from completed PQQs received by the submission deadline and successful organisations will be invited to submit a formal tender.

The contract period is ideally for three years (however this is subject to market conditions), commencing with the insurance renewal date for the year on 1 August 2015.
