I cant get my head round this. The ITT says that for housing/family/Imm:
6.11 Where an Individual Bid is for between 61 and 100 Matter Starts it will be assured. Where an Individual bid is for 101 Matter Starts or above, we will only allocate Matter Starts above 100 where there is a sufficient volume of Matter Starts remaining in accordance with 9.10.
What if the procurement plans say that there are 150 NMS available, but there are 3 providers who each meet the basic rules and bid for 100 each. What have i missed?

Does this mean local firm of sols has 2 offices in the middle of town, not 100 yards apart. Think they recently bought someone out. Would they be able to put 2 bids in the same PA even if it outstrips the total number of NMS available?

On the one hand yes, but on the other hand its a potential to open the door to some unscrupulous tactics. I had hoped that the narrative of the 2010 of round, that pitted providers in several unpleasant and unproductive head to head battles with eachother, and caused some scarring to the sector generally, was a thing of the past.

Did you? I think LASPO taught me all I need to know about unpleasant and mercenary attitudes, both within Government and, the sector. There was never any reason why this bid round would ever be a nice pleasant affair. As they say, suck it up Richard, do or die and all that
