DVLA is now using the SELECT system from Business Information Publications (BiP) Ltd as it's supplier information database.
SELECT is a web-based application that allows suppliers to register, maintain and submit their pre-qualification data on-line, at no cost.
Once registered a supplier can create multiple profiles, each with data customised to different markets or specific tenders. Provided suppliers maintain their information within the database, this will remove the need to re-submit pre-qualification data (i.e. accounts and turnover) for every DVLA tender. SELECT allows DVLA to create approved lists of suppliers who will be invited to tender for a specific contract.
