    III.1) Conditions for participation

    III.1.2) Economic and financial standing

    List and brief description of selection criteria:

    Bidders must refer to the ESPD (Scotland) Bidders Guidance Instructions document concerning Section B, part IV, economic and financial standing selection criteria.

    A form of company financial assessment from each tenderer is required. The tenderer's failure risk will be evaluated as pass/fail.

    There is no action required here for the tenderer, the authority will undertake an action, using Dun and Bradstreet (D&B), to obtain a Failure Risk Score (D&B Failure Score) for the Tenderer and any consortia or reliance members.

    If the failure score is 51 or more you will receive a pass for this assessment.

    If the score is less than 51 or no failure score is available we will contact the tenderer and seek further information. We will then use this further information to assess the tenderer’s level of failure risk. If this assessment identifies an unmanageable risk (i.e. it is unacceptable) the tenderer will fail this assessment.

    In the event that the tenderer does not meet the financial criteria above, they may still be considered via some form of other assurance e.g. Parent Company Guarantee (providing parent has a failure risk score of 51 or more) or a performance bond.

    There must be no qualification or contra-indication from any evidence provided in support of the tenderers economic and financial standing.
