Don't know if this is typical, but TfL rules had (not sure if it's changed recently) all sorts of rules about SMEs being able to supply and so on, make sure no disadvantage and in some areas make sure you favour small to medium businesses, subject to agreement of internal departments. It's possible I misunderstood things when i was told that the internal IT team guidelines said minimum turnover of £50m to qualify as a supplier, no matter what.

Of course, it's quite possible I did not misunderstand at all. One set of published "rules", then some internal "guidelines" to keep things as they were.
