II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

Achilles Utilities NCE is a joint qualification system for suppliers and contractors to utilities in Nordics and Central Europe. It's operated by Achilles under Article 77 of Directive 2014/25/EU. The subscribing utilities will use Achilles Utilities NCE for tenderer selection for contracts and Framework Agreements subject to EU procurement rules, but reserve the right to publish individual notices for specific requirements where they deem it necessary, even though they relate to the product and service categories covered by Achilles Utilities NCE. The qualification system may be used for contracts not subject to EU procurement rules at each subscriber's discretion. An overview of products and services acquired through Achilles Utilities NCE is available here https://www.achilles.com//app/uploads/2018/05/Utilties-UNCE-Product_Codes_EN.pdf

Formalities necessary for evaluating if requirements are met:

Achilles Utilities NCE is of indefinite duration, but supplier information must be updated annually. Suppliers already qualified on Achilles Utilities NCE will be reminded to renew before the qualification period expires. The annual qualification fee is ranging from 160 EUR to 700 EUR payable in advance. Suppliers can update their information during the qualification period.

Section III: Legal, economic, financial and technical information

III.1)Conditions for participation
III.1.5)Information about reserved contracts
III.1.9)Qualification for the system
Conditions to be fulfilled by economic operators in view of their qualification:

Suppliers may apply for qualification at any time. To apply the suppliers must complete an order form and pay in advance an annual qualification fee ranging from 160 EUR to 700 EUR. The order form with qualification requirements can be obtained here https://bit.ly/2XeMyv4. To qualify the suppliers must complete an online questionnaire covering detailed information about their company. As some Contracting Authorities and contracting entities require to receive an ESPD, the suppliers can submit an ESPD via Achilles Utilities NCEE. Basic commercial requirements must be satisfied. Some buying organizations may have individual requirements in addition to the basic requirements. The suppliers can therefore be asked to answer customer-specific questions related to the qualification. Achilles Utilities NCE is open to manufacturers or distributors doing business directly with the buyer. The bidders lists will be based on suppliers that have passed the initial qualification.
