Question details
Conflict of interest
1) Do the situations described lead to an automatic disqualification from the procedure? Based on which criteria will the Commission make the assessment of conflict of interest?
Financial Regulation (FR) provides that candidates or tenderers shall not be subject to conflicts of interest that may negatively affect the performance of the contract (Article 167 and Point 20.6 of Annex I FR). Where the contracting authority has established such conflicting interests, it may conclude that the tenderer or an involved entity does not possess the required professional capacity to perform the contract to an appropriate quality standard and reject it. The presence of a potential conflicting interests will be examined during the tender evaluation phase based on the statements made through the declarations on honour and/or commitment letters and, where applicable, other elements received from the tenderers during the contradictory procedure.
