Question details
Annex III in e-Submission portal
In the 'Technical Specifications' document it is stated that a completed Annex III (Declaration of honour) is required by each subcontractor where more than 10% of the contract shall be executed by subcontractors. However, when adding a new subcontractor in the e-Submission portal a ‘Declaration of honour’ is mandatory as an attachment, even if the subcontractor shall execute less than 10% of the contract. Could you please explain how tenderer should proceed with this situation? Should tenderer upload its own completed Annex III in these cases?
The e-submission platform is designed in a way that it is compulsory to upload a Declaration on Honour when a subcontractor is added, regardless of the volume of subcontracting. Tenderers are advised to upload their own completed declaration in cases where subcontracting is foreseen, but the volume of subcontracting is less than 10% of the contract.
