Section I: Contracting authority
Section II: Object
Procurement of contract with one supplier for the production, personalisation and distribution of tachograph cards, generation 2 version 2
The Danish Road Safety and Transport Agency is responsible for issuing tachograph cards in Denmark and must issue a tender for the production, personalisation and distribution of tachograph cards, generation 2, version 2.
The contract covers the four types of tachograph cards: driver cards, control cards, shielded cards and company cards. The supplier must also be able to produce special and test cards.
The contract includes an establishment phase during which the design of tachograph cards is defined, type approvals are obtained, the required documents are drawn up, etc., as specified in the tender documents.
After the deadline for setting up, the Danish Road Safety and Transport Agency expects to purchase the following number of tachograph cards per year, based on an average of consumption for 2019-2021:
— Driver cards: 18.850 cards
— Control cards: 100 cards
— Workshop cards: 785 cards
— Company cards: 3.285 cards
The supplier shall provide all tachograph cards ordered for the duration of the contract after the establishment phase.
The contracting authority expects the annual average to fluctuate by ± 15 per cent.
The procurement takes the form of a negotiated procedure in which the contracting authority expects to pre-qualify 3 candidates to submit initial tenders.
Upon receipt of the initial tenders, the contracting authority shall hold individual negotiation meetings with all tenderers who have submitted an initial tender in due time. It is expected that a 2-hour negotiating session will be held with each tenderer. The negotiations shall be conducted in accordance with the principle of equal treatment and all tenderers shall be awarded the same time for negotiations with the contracting authority.
The negotiations are held virtually via Teams and are conducted in Danish or English.
The procuring entity has the option to renew the contract by twice one year on unchanged terms. The entity’s option shall be triggered by written notice to the supplier not later than 6 months before the end of the contract with effect for one year at a time.
The contracting authority expects to select 3 candidates to submit a tender. If more than 3 suitable applications are received, the contracting entity will limit the number on the basis of the following objective and non-discriminatory criteria:
The selection of the candidates invited to submit a tender will be preceded by an assessment of which candidates have documented the most relevant references in the ESPD, Part IV, Section C, demonstrating as much as possible experience in similar tasks as the contract tendered, including the number of maps produced, the comparability of the subject matter of the procurement and the services provided.
It is positively assessed:
— the more experience the candidate has in the production of tachograph cards, in particular generation 2 version 1 cards.
— the more experience the applicant has with system integration into ordering systems.
— the more comparable the number of cards produced under this contract.
(1) if the scope of tachograph cards is extended so that more vehicles are to use the tachograph cards covered by the contract, the contracting authority may extend the number of tachograph cards under the terms of the contract.
(2) as an option, the procuring entity may choose to purchase the tracking of tachograph cards as part of the distribution, possibly for a limited period of time. The procuring entity may announce the purchase of tracking with one month’s notice.
(3) if, during the term of the contract, the contracting entity is required to make administrative changes, such as changes in the design of envelopes and cover letters, changes in graphic layout/tachograph card design, for example as a result of an amending regulation or changes to information in progress report, etc., the contracting authority may have these changes made with billing after taking into account time for the hourly prices tendered.
The tendered contract is not divided into lots as the subject matter of the contract is not suitable for splitting. The main subject matter of the contract covers the production of goods with some differences, so that splitting does not lead to competitive advantages. No fee, fee or similar shall be paid for participating in the call for tenders. Even if the contracting authority decides to cancel the procedure without the award of a contract.
Section III: Legal, economic, financial and technical information
The procuring entity shall not impose requirements on economic and financial capacity.
The tenderer must indicate the principal equivalent supplies (reference list) carried out within the last 3 years from the deadline for submission of applications in the European Single Procurement Document (ESPD) Part IV, Section C. The references must be written in the ESPD and cannot be annexed.
The reference list shall include the most significant supplies of similar goods and services as the contract tendered. Equivalent supplies are references to the production, personalisation and distribution of ID/smartcards.
A description of a reference shall contain:
— A brief, clear description of the service (s) of which the supply has/consists of.
— Why the reference is relevant in relation to the contract to be awarded.
— The role (s) of the tenderer in the performance of the supply.
— Time of performance of the supply. (If the supplies relate to an ongoing framework contract or contract, the tenderer must refer to the deliverables carried out thereunder until the deadline for submission of applications. The references may be supplies on the same framework contract.)
— Identification of the customer, including the contact person at the customer’s premises.
— The total fee for the reference (up to the closing date for applications).
The tenderer must provide at least three references and a maximum of five references. If the tenderer gives more than five references, only the first five references will be taken into account in the evaluation of the application. A maximum of five references can be given, whether it is a single undertaking, whether the applicant relies on the capacities of another undertaking or whether it is a group of undertakings (e.g. a consortium).
The description of a reference must not exceed 300 words. If the description of a reference is longer than 300 words, only the first 300 words are included in the assessment.
The tenderer’s reference list in the ESPD constitutes the final proof of the tenderer’s technical and professional capacity. However, the procuring entity reserves the right to contact the customer to whom a reference relates.
The tenderer is obliged to comply with the contracting authority’s work clause in the performance of the contract.
The supplier shall ensure that staff of the supplier and any subcontractors involved in the personalisation of tachograph cards, who have access to or become aware of personal data, prior to the start of production, must be able to obtain security clearance from the customer. Security clearances shall be at the level of security classification according to CIR1H No 10338 of 17/12/2014 (Circular on the protection of information of common interest to NATO or EU countries, other classified information and other information of security interest).
