See tender documents.
III.1.2)Main financing conditions and payment arrangements and/or reference to the relevant provisions governing them:
See tender documents.
III.1.3)Legal form to be taken by the group of economic operators to whom the contract is to be awarded:
Tenders can be submitted by groupings of economic operators, without them having to adopt a particular legal form prior to the contract being awarded.
However, a grouping of economic operators must identify a sole representative who will also be responsible for the receipt and processing of payments for members of the grouping, for administrative management of the service, and for coordination and safety.
Said responsible party must be duly authorised to submit the tender on behalf of the other members of the grouping who must submit a corresponding signed declaration.
All grouping members shall be jointly and severally liable vis-à-vis the contracting authority and, if awarded the contract, will be required to sign it. For groupings, the documents in points III.2.1(a) and (b) must be provided by each grouping member; the document in point III.2.2(b) must be held by at least 1 grouping member; the document in point III.2.3(d) must be held by all grouping members.

III.1.4)Other particular conditions
The performance of the contract is subject to particular conditions: yes
Description of particular conditions: an economic operator may, if necessary, make use of the capacities of other bodies irrespective of the legal nature of the relationship between both parties. In such an event, he must provide the contracting authority with proof that he will be able to have the resources needed to carry out the contract by producing a written commitment by said bodies to make such resources available. If an economic operator makes use of other bodies, in the event that the contract is awarded to him, the contracting authority requests that those bodies also sign the contract, thus becoming jointly and severally liable together with the main tenderer. Any bodies that the economic operator makes use of shall submit the documents required in the following points III.2.1(a) and III.2.1(b). In the event of subcontracting for the purposes of covering the minimum requirements, the contracting authority reserves the right to request that subcontractors comply with the relevant criteria in the following points III.2.2 and III.2.3.
