Question details
Regulatory expert
Can you kindly clarify in section 4.2.4, if the expert with 3 years’ professional experience in legal and regulatory framework for rail in the EU, should be providing expertise on the application of the Directives and Specifications or be providing more general legal advice, for example, concerning the drafting or application of related legal documents and hence requiring legal qualifications and background.
Criterion A3 requires “Experience in the legal and regulatory framework for rail in the EU, in particular Directives 2008/57/EC and 2016/797 and the requirements of the associated Technical Specifications for Interoperability” Evidence A3 specifies: the tenderer must provide references for 3 projects delivered in this field covering different TSIs in the last three years. Since both the interoperability Directives and the TSIs are mentioned in the Criterion, “in this field” means in an inclusive way experience acquired in the Directives and / or in the TSIs.
