This is an example Questionnaire for an Invitation to Tender . It is based on the official LHC Invitation to Tender Questionnaire template. It includes hints and guidelines on how to prepare the Questionnaire for a Tender. 

The example is meant as a guide to the contents, and as a reminder of the points to consider, when preparing a tender. The chapters proposed in the template should be amended to suit individual cases. 

The following conventions are used in this example: 

  • All the text in black is the text found in the Word template. This may need editing to obtain a

  • complete Questionnaire. 
  • The text in red is an example of what has to be added to complete the document. In the Word template these additions are indicated by XXXX 
  • The HELP are links to hints and guidelines to help the editor preparing the document.
