Expressions of Interest Process Requirements
The purpose of an Expression of Interest (EOI) is to explore market availability. EOI may be sought prior to completing a full tender process. 

The tender specifications documents may have to be revised to include any changes resulting from the receipt of EOI. Any proposed tenderers who submit an EOI must be provided the opportunity to tender.

EOI may be used as a process for creating a list of reputable suppliers. Any method for evaluating and selecting these suppliers must be approved by the Tender Committee.
