a. Pass / Fail Question. If a ‘FAIL’ is noted for any questions assessed on a ‘PASS / FAIL’ basis, your inclusion on the Tender List may be precluded, subject to verification by the evaluation team.
b. Yes / No Question. If a ‘NO’ is noted for any questions assessed on a YES / NO basis, your inclusion on the Tender List may not be precluded, however this is subject to verification by the evaluation team.
c. 0 — No Response — Unacceptable or insufficient information provided upon which to make a reasonable assessment. Response fails to provide confidence and demonstrates fundamental misunderstanding of the requirement. Your inclusion on the Tender List may be precluded, dependant on overall score and subject to verification by the evaluation team.
d. 1 — Poor Response — Limited, it lacks detail, credibility and/or explanation, and demonstrates only a basic understanding of the requirement. Partial responses provided, not linked to the key attributes of the questions — anecdotal in parts. The response provides limited evidence of processes, procedures, roles/responsibilities and professional competency etc. The answer contains ambiguities or deficiencies that may not be tolerated. Your inclusion on the Tender List will most likely be precluded, dependant on overall score and subject to verification by the evaluation team.
e. 2 — Satisfactory Response — demonstrates a satisfactory understanding of the requirement. The response outlines a level of professional competency. Response includes some key processes and procedures, linked to key attributes of the questions and demonstrates a reasonably acceptable approach that covers most areas, however, lacks depth and supporting evidence. Your inclusion on the Tender List may not be precluded; however this is subject to verification by the evaluation team.
f. 3 — Good Response — is sufficiently detailed to demonstrate a good understanding of the requirement. Demonstrable approach that is clear and consistent. Processes and procedures are reasonably well explained and logical. Response is clear, verifiable and covers all key attributes of the question. Your inclusion on the Tender List may not be precluded; however this is subject to verification by the evaluation team.
g. 4 — Very Good Response — demonstrates a strong understanding of the requirement. It provides specific details and clearly demonstrates professional competencies and works experience in relation to the question. Evidence provided to support a confidence in ability to deliver. The response identifies specific commendations/awards achieved in relation to the question being answered, that can be verified by the evaluation team.
h. 5 — Excellent Response — is comprehensive, unambiguous and demonstrates an excellent understanding of the requirement. Approach is detailed and includes robust and effective measures, with processes and procedures being clearly explained and perfectly logical. It provides specific details and clearly demonstrates professional competencies and relevant works experience in relation to the question. Clear and fully verifiable evidence provided that covers all attributes, providing high degree of confidence in ability to deliver. The response identifies specific commendations/awards achieved in relation to the question being answered, that can be verified by the evaluation team.
