Requirements for Obtaining Quotes

Do I need to get three quotations for application for all my costs?

Yes, in line with EU rules, the following procedure must be adhered to:

We require a confirmation made by promoter that every attempt to achieve value for money in terms of expenditure was made and documented.

 

Ensure for contracts under €5,000:

  • At least one verbal quote has been obtained (note on file)

 

Ensure for contracts between €5,000 - €50,000:

  • A minimum of 3 written quotes have been sought
  • That tenders have been evaluated objectively against specified requirements using a scoring sheet

 

Ensure for contracts between 50,000 and 200,000:

  • Formal tendering is carried out either using the Irish Government website www.etenders.ie and/or other suitable publication; or 5 written quotes are sought and evidence that at least 3 were received is available on file.
  • That tenders have been evaluated objectively against specified requirements using a scoring sheet.
