The timing for the Expressions of Interest anticipates that some preliminary discussions within your organisation will be necessary, and provides
appropriate time for that to happen.
You are asked to return the attached Expression of Interest form to
firstname.lastname@example.org by 13 January 2014.
Upon submitting an Expression of Interest, you will be provided with a formal tender document specifying the criteria that will be used by the ARU to select teams to participate in the competition.
There will be the opportunity for extensive consultation and collaboration with all Rugby stakeholders during the tender window. The target date for announcing NRC Teams is 28 February 2014.
For more information, please contact:
Ben Whitaker :: General Manager, Development Pathways, ARU
I've already asked Rowley if we can get together at the Oaks to draft one up for the Green & Gold Thirsties.
We'll be all over the fan base criteria ....
Page 4 of the EOI document:
"Prior to commencing the Tender process, the ARU is now seeking
Expressions of Interest from parties who would like to be considered
in the call for tenders. The Expression of Interest is not binding in any way, and does not require you to address the criteria mentioned above at this stage. It is simply an indication that you may be interested in
taking part, that you have genuine capacity to develop and deliver a suitable team program and provides an opportunity for the ARU to engage with you on a consultative basis."
This is just "I am interested in tendering when you ask for tenders."
