If you’re planning a procurement, you can use an EOI process to gauge interest in your contract. This will help you plan how much time and resources you’ll need to evaluate suppliers’ bids at the contract award stage.

You should use the EOI form to provide the suppliers with a concise but accurate summary of the outcomes you require.
