    Section III: Legal, economic, financial and technical information

    III.1) Conditions for participation

    III.1.2) Economic and financial standing

    List and brief description of selection criteria:

    Bidders must provide its ("general" yearly turnover for the last 2 financial years.

    The Council will use Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) to assist in its determination of the organisation’s financial status and risk. The Council would expect Tenderers to have a minimum D&B Failure Score of 20%, however failure to meet this Failure Score would not necessarily merit a ‘FAIL’ as the D&B Failure Score is only one factor used by the Council in assessing the acceptability or otherwise of a Tenderer’s financial status. The Council will take into account the Tenderer’s response to the ESPD Part 1V Question 4B.1.1

    It is recommended that tenderers review their own D&B Failure Score in advance of submitting their tender submission. If, following this review, Tenderers consider that the D&B Failure Score does not reflect their current financial status, the tenderer should attach a document to this section giving a detailed explanation together with any relevant supporting independent evidence. The Council will review any such information as part of the evaluation of Tenderer’s financial status.

    Where the Tenderer is under no obligation to publish accounts and therefore does not have a D&B Failure Score or equivalent rating, they must provide their audited financial accounts for the previous 2 years as part of their Tender Submission in order that the Council may assess these to determine the suitability of the Tenderer to undertake any Contract of this size. Where a consortium bid is received, the D&B Failure Score of each consortium member shall be assessed. Any accounts or documents submitted must be in English and, if appropriate, certified as accurate translations.

    Where the Tenderer is a subsidiary of a group but is applying as a separate legal entity and fails to meet the minimum D&B Failure Score (or equivalent) as a company, a parent company or bank guarantee may be required to allow progression in the tender process. The Council will be the sole judge as to whether these are required and it shall notify Tenderers accordingly. The parent company or bank guarantee must meet the minimum financial requirements as assessed by the Council and must be in the form requested by the Council.

    Where the Tenderer intends to sub-contract more than 25% of any Contract value to a single sub-contractor then the foregoing actions will apply similarly to the relevant sub-contractor(s). The Council also reserves the right to reject the use of sub-contractors following evaluation of the sub-contractor’s financial status.


    Minimum level(s) of standards required:

    Tenderers must hold or commit to obtain prior to the commencement of and for the duration of the Contract or any subsequently awarded contract, the types and levels of insurance detailed:

    Employers Liability - statutory minimum 5m GBP, each and every claim

    Public Liability - minimum 5m GBP, each and every claim

    Professional Indemnity, 1m GBP, each and every claim, however will accept cover in the aggregate so long as at least one automatic annual reinstatement of this sum is permitted under the policy terms.

    There may be a requirement for statutory third party motor vehicle insurance to be evidenced if vehicles are used to deliver the service either by way of a valid MV certificate in the company name OR, where there is no company fleet and employees use their own vehicles instead, a letter signed by a person of appropriate authority confirming that the Provider has ongoing arrangements in place to ensure that employees' vehicles are appropriately insured and maintained for business purposes.
