Section III: Legal, economic, financial and technical information

III.1)Conditions for participation
III.1.1)Suitability to pursue the professional activity, including requirements relating to enrolment on professional or trade registers
List and brief description of conditions:

If required by the member state, bidders are required to be enrolled in the relevant professional or trade registers within the country in which they are established.

III.1.2)Economic and financial standing
List and brief description of selection criteria:

Re ESPD question 4B.6 West Lothian Council will use Dun and Bradstreet's DBAi financial reporting system to assess the financial stability of tenderers. Tenderers with a Failure Score of 35 or above on the DBAi system will be deemed to have evidenced satisfactory financial stability. Please note that 35- (minus) will not be considered as having met this criteria. If a tenderer has a Failure Score of less than 35, the tenderer may be required to submit their last three years accounts.

In the event that the tenderer is not required to publish accounts and therefore does not have a Dun & Bradstreet or equivalent rating, tenderers should be able to provide financial accounts when requested. The council will then conduct an analysis of the accounts to ensure that there is no significant financial risk. Please note that if you intend on attaching 2 years accounts, these must include financial data over a 3 year period.

It is recommended that candidates review their own Dun & Bradstreet Score in advance of submitting their tender. If following this review tenderers consider that the Dun & Bradstreet Score does not reflect their current financial status, details of this should be provided, complete with evidence of a good high street credit rating (the equivalent of Dun & Bradstreet score 35) from a recognised credit referencing agency. The council will review any such information as part of the evaluation of Tenderer's financial status.

In the event that a firm does not meet the financial criteria for consideration but has a parent company that does, the firm may still be eligible for consideration where their Tender Submission is supported by a Parent Company Guarantee.

Should after review of the financial evaluation the tenderer fail, then the tender submission may be rejected.

Minimum level(s) of standards possibly required:

Re ESPD question 4B.5 West Lothian Council request the following insurances as a minimum

Employer's Liability 10 000 000 GBP

Public Liablity 5 000 000 GBP
