Question details
Ten-year liablity insurance
In the framework of this call for tender, we noticed that in the document “Draft Framework Works Contract OIB/DR2/PO/2014/034/611”, in Article I.9.4 Insurance point B, you ask the contractor to take out ten-year liability insurance. As this procurement mainly consists of finishing work, we wonder how useful such insurance would be, given that this type of insurance generally aims to cover the problems of structural stability of the building or disorder. Moreover, such insurance represents an important share in the price offer. Could you confirm that the tenderers should include in their bids the ten-year liability insurance? On the other hand Belgium insurers require an inspection body for this type of insurance. Could you please tell us if the costs of this inspection body must be included in the offer or not?
