Question 10. Can we apply for more than one lot?
Yes. You can apply for a number of lots at the same time. Alternatively, as the DPS is always open you can apply for different lots over a period of time.
Question 11. We plan to apply to more than one lot, can we use the same case studies in our application for each lot?
As long as case studies are relevant to the LOT you are applying for, then you may use the same case study. Think carefully though about only using 4 to reflect the breadth of your offer if you copy and paste to each LOT.
Question 12. We have a question about our application, who should we contact?
The quickest route to a response is to ask your question through the DPS Intend Portal. Once your query is submitted our team will be alerted and will respond as soon as possible.
