PASS Support


CAPS – Direct access to procurement knowledge

The PASS CAPS (Contract Administration and Process Support) service is a unique offering, giving you direct answers to your procurement-related or tendering queries on an ad hoc basis via email.

By purchasing CAPS credits, you can email PASS consultants for advice, knowledge and guidance, whether you have a simple one-off question or a complex query.

The CAPS service is convenient and flexible, and offers exceptional value for money.

CAPS gives public sector personnel charged with letting contracts and completing contract notices that comply with the EU Procurement Directives a greater understanding of processes and legislation, as well as providing clarification on topics such as:

  • Best practice
  • New legislation
  • Financial thresholds
  • Contract procedures and exceptions

“In a bid to further my tendering experience and keep abreast of legislation, I have invested in BiP’s PASS Consultancy Service. Their CAPS Licence, which allows me to email any tender question direct to their consultants, has provided me with quick, faultless and easy-to-understand responses to my tender-related questions. This consultancy has been pure gold dust and has helped me win significant new contracts.”
