Transport for London’s Open Innovation Team is looking to appoint an Innovation Operations Supplier (IOS) to support the delivery of Open Innovation’s discovery, trialling and commercialisation workflow.
The IOS would be appointed to a 3+1 master agreement with individual pieces of work being delivered through call offs.
This tender will follow the restricted procedure with any prospective bidder being able to compete in the Supplier Questionnaire (SQ) stage. Up to six of the highest scoring suppliers following the evaluation of the SQ submissions will then be invited to the Invitation to Tender (ITT) stage.
The SQ/ITT will both be managed on TfL’s e-tendering platform SAP Ariba. SQ/ITT submissions and any clarification queries must be submitted via the relevant SAP Ariba Sourcing Event.

A summary of this guidance is as follows:

https://s1-eu.ariba.com/Sourcing/Main/ad/selfRegistration?realm=TfL
This will create a supplier record for your company in the internal TfL sourcing system, allowing TfL commercial teams to invite your company to sourcing events.
2. Create your Ariba Network (SAP Business Network) Account:
If you don’t have an Ariba Network Account please create one at https://supplier.ariba.com and add to the account your sourcing event Users.
3. Request access to SQ sourcing event
If your organisation already had/has now completed its TfL supplier request form and already had/now has an Ariba Network Account please request access to the Innovation Operation Supplier SQ sourcing event by emailing James Inchbald at: jamesinchbald@tfl.gov.uk
Please include which Ariba User from your organisation you would like to be added to the event (multiple users from one organisation can be added).
You will then be added to the Ariba SQ sourcing event where you can gain access to the SQ documentation and submit your SQ submission.
This entire process is free of charge.
Please note, you will not be able to access to the SQ documentation unless your registration is complete. This should be completed as soon as possible to avoid delays.
