A Standard Selection Questionnaire (SQ) is a compulsory part of your supplier profile. On your supplier profile, you might notice that there is a new Standard Selection Questionnaire template, published earlier this year. You can complete this questionnaire at your own pace and save it to your organisation profile. This information will then be automatically pulled across when applying to any opportunity so will save you and your team time!
However, for opportunities published prior to June 1st 2023, they will have used the old (2016) template for the SQ. This means that when applying to those opportunities, any information saved in your SQ in your settings will not be pulled through.
The SQ template we use is based on the latest Cabinet Office & Crown Commercial Service SQ. Their Procurement Policy Guidance can be found here. Here’s how to find your SQ so that you can start filling it in:
Log in to Cimple
Click on your name in the top-right corner and then 'organisation settings'
Now select ‘Organisation SQ’ from the list on the left.
Remember to scroll to the bottom and click 'Save changes' if you need to pause and resume another time
