DOS – Will GDS meet the Christmas deadline?
Having discussed the DOS and looked at the timings in more detail we have drafted an expected timeline.
Following on from our blog yesterday we have been discussing the planned DOS ITT and it emerges that there is concern amongst the supplier community that the ITT may be delayed and as such eat into the Christmas holiday period. In his blog post Tony Singleton suggested that GDS & CCS would “aim” to have the ITT out by the end of this month; in the interests of helping the SME supplier community manage their staffing in what is traditionally a very busy time of year for them (Christmas marketing campaigns etc). We have given a “drop dead” timeline below.
So if GDS are true to their “aims” we expect the ITT to be out between now and 17th November (the last possible day for OJEU). Not long in effect!
