III.1.1) Suitability to pursue the professional activity, including requirements relating to enrolment on professional or trade registers

List and brief description of conditions:

In accordance with:

(i) Article 57 to 60 of Directive 2014/24/EU of the European Parliament and of the European Council; and

(ii) Regulations 57 to 60 of the Public Contracts 2015 (SI 2015/102) (the ‘Regulations’), which require or permit the contracting authority not to select or to treat as ineligible, economic operators, the contracting authority reserves the right to exclude any economic operator whom they deem to not satisfy any criteria outlined within the scoring matrices contained within the standard selection questionnaire (‘SQ’) within the tenderer submission documents which are available to download at: https://www.yortender.co.uk/procontract/supplier.nsf or is available at the address set out in sections I.1) and I.3) of this notice above.

III.1.2) Economic and financial standing

List and brief description of selection criteria:

See section 4 of the SQ (available to download at: https://www.yortender.co.uk/procontract/supplier.nsf).

Economic operators must submit either:

(a) copy of the audited accounts for the most recent two (2) years if requested. If it cannot, then it must provide either:

(b) a statement of the turnover, profit and loss account/income statement, balance sheet/statement of financial position and statement of cash flow for the most recent year of trading for this organisation;

(c) a statement of the cash flow forecast for the current year and a bank letter outlining the current cash and credit position; or

(d) alternative means of demonstrating financial status if any of the above are not available (e.g. forecast of turnover for the current year and a statement of funding provided by the owners and/or the bank, charity accruals accounts or an alternative means of demonstrating financial status).

Economic operators must also confirm whether or not they are part of a wider group (e.g. a subsidiary of a holding/parent company), and if so must provide confirmation of:

(a) the name of the organisation;

(b) the relationship to the economic operator completing the SQ; the organisation’s company accounts (if available); and confirmation on whether or not this organisation would be willing to provide a guarantee if necessary, and if not would the economic operator be able to obtain a guarantee elsewhere (e.g. from a bank).

Insurance:

See section 8.1 of the SQ (available to download at: https://www.yortender.co.uk/procontract/supplier.nsf).

Economic operators are asked to self-certify whether they already have, or can commit to obtain, prior to the commencement date of the contract, the levels of insurance cover indicated below:

(a) employer’s (compulsory) liability insurance = GBP 10 000 000 (in relation to any one claim or series of claims);

(b) public liability insurance = GBP 10 000 000 (in relation to any one claim or series of claims); and

(c) professional indemnity/negligence insurance = GBP 5 000 000 (for lot 1) and GBP 2 000 000 (for all other lots) (in relation to any one claim or series of claims).

Minimum level(s) of standards required:

Finance:

See section 4 of the selection questionnaire (available to download at: https://www.yortender.co.uk/procontract/supplier.nsf).

The rationale applied will be economic operators being able to demonstrate an annual turnover of GBP 2 000 000 for lot 1 and at least two (2) times the estimated annual value for all other lots (lots 2-10) as outlined within the tender documents and a positive net worth. This will be a cumulative value for applicants applying for multiple lots. Failure by an economic operator to supply either a copy of the audited accounts for the most recent two (2) years or any one of the document listed in (a)-(c) in section 4.1 of the SQ may also result in exclusion. Further, any answers which leads the contracting authority, acting reasonably, to conclude (considering the risk that the relevant answer suggests about the economic operator’s ability to properly perform the contract) that it would be inappropriate to select the economic operator on this occasion may result in exclusion. In addition, if an economic operator indicates in section 5 of the SQ that its parent or holding company is prepared to guarantee the performance of the economic operator’s company, the information provided in response to sections 5.1 to 5.3 will be used in the financial assessment of the economic operator.

Insurance:

See 8.1 of the SQ (available to download at: https://www.yortender.co.uk/procontract/supplier.nsf).

Failure to indicate ‘Yes’ to any of the required insurances stated in Section 8.1 will result in exclusion.
