Government support schemes
The UK Government is supporting businesses and their employees through a package of measures during this period of unprecedented disruption. Further details are available at nibusinessinfo.co.uk (link opens in new window).
In line with government guidance, PPN 04/20 (link opens in new window), we are moving into the next phase of the response to COVID-19. Where appropriate, we will work with contractors to transition to a sustainable operating model.
Up to the end of June 2020, we considered requests for supplier relief (support) in line with government guidance, PPN 02/20. Supplier relief provisions may still be appropriate in order to resume delivery of at-risk services. During the transition period (July 2020 to October 2020), you may still submit a request for supplier relief by completing the form below.
The PPN 02/20 (link opens in new window) outlines a number of conditions and obligations that may be applicable to suppliers that are in receipt of supplier relief. Please make sure you carefully read, understand and agree to these conditions and obligations if we provide you with an offer of assistance and if they apply to you.
Contracted suppliers at-risk
We appreciate the ongoing commitment and support from our contracted suppliers to provide goods, works and services to us us during COVID-19.
We want to maintain our positive working relationships with our contracted suppliers during this period. We will try to provide whatever support and assistance is required to make sure contract delivery is resumed in a sustainable way.
