National Testing and Supplies Call to Action and Market Engagement

Call to Action – second Industry Engagement Webinar

The National Testing and Supplies Team have released a Request for Information (RFI) to engage the market for potential suppliers who can help meet growing demand for COVID-19 tests.

As part of the COVID-19 Moonshot programme the Department of Health & Social Care (DHSC) is seeking to procure sample collection consumables for COVID-19 testing.

This is to help scale up to meet the ambitions for mass testing in response to projected winter demands and beyond. Industry is key to supplying the volume of consumables needed to meet the expected high demand.

The target audience is suppliers and manufacturers of swab testing kits and consumables suitable for use in COVID-19 testing.

Access the specification documentation and respond to the RFI here:

Please follow the ‘RFI response instructions’ highlighted in the ‘RFI background and context’ sheet of the excel document.

Although the closing date is 30 September 2020, we request that you submit your response as soon as possible.

Suppliers and manufacturers can find out more in a webinar on Friday 18th September. You will be able to find out more about the scope of the RFI and ask questions.
