Question details
Selection criteria - Evidence for economic and financial capacity
At paragraph 2.4A, "Selection criteria Economic and Financial Capacity", it’s stated that the 3 closed financial years to be considered are 2015,2016 and 2017. Would it be possible to know which evidence would be considered acceptable, in case of award, to prove the annual turnover for year 2017, taking into consideration that relevant audited annual accounts would not be available before March (date of expected contract signature) ?
The evidence requested, in case of award, is the following: the annual accounts for the last 3 closed financial years, in particular the profit and loss accounts, whereby it will be possible to verify that the turnover is reached for each indicated year. Should the 2017 financial data not be available before the contract is awarded, the contracting authority reserves the right to ask for further documentation. Also please note that, in case of partners in a joint offer and/or subcontractors, the turnover of each entity may cumulatively contribute to reaching of the turnover requirement.
