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

LHC uses the following ratios to evaluate each bidder's and approved contractor's financial status:

— turnover required x2 project value as defined on Contract Notice (twice the typical value for x2 projects called-off this Framework).

For an SME or start-up bidders that cannot meet the lowest level of turn over, must provide evidence that they can obtain a performance bond or provide a parent company guarantee for projects over 250 000 GBP.

If tenders don not have a turnover generally of the level indicated within the Contract Notice they will fail the financial requirements. If a bidder fails the financial requirements they will be excluded from the tender and their bid will be rejected.

Profitability and Liquidity will only be assessed if the bidder passes the turnover requirements,

— profitability: this is calculated as profit after tax but before dividends and minority interests. If a company makes a profit, then it passes this ratio, and

— liquidity: this is calculated as current assets and work in progress, divided by current liabilities. If the answer is greater than one, then it passes this ratio.

If a bidder fails the assessment for either Liquidity or profitability the may fail the financial assessment. LHC reserves the right to undertake its own detailed financial assessment of the bidder in order to ascertain to its own satisfaction the financial and economic standing and robustness of the organization of the bidder and also, where applicable, the Parent / Holding Company and its subsidiaries. If a bidder fails this detailed assessment they will fail the tender and their bid will be rejected.

Minimum level(s) of standards possibly required:

For Construction Lots of up to 15 units bidders will be required to have a minimum “general” yearly turnover of 500 000 GBP for the last 3 years: for these lots SME or start-ups that cannot meet the lowest level of turnover must provide evidence that they can obtain a performance bond or provide a parent company guarantee for projects over 250 000 GBP.

For Construction Lots of 16 to 49 units bidders will be required to have a minimum “general” yearly turnover of 5 000 000 GBP for the last 3 years.

VI.3)Additional information:

LHC is a joint committee of local authorities acting as a central purchasing body on behalf of Welsh Procurement Alliance partners who include housing associations and councils, with whom and for whom this Framework has been developed.

Due to the reach and scale of LHC partners' portfolios, the framework aims to support the delivery of housing throughout Wales. Consequently, whilst not specifically consulted in the development of this framework, other contracting authorities as defined by the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 and as described in www.lhc.gov.uk/24 may also deem the framework to offer a value for money procurement solution for their requirements, and may also use the Framework.

However, bidders should only consider the opportunity presented by current and future members of the LHC when preparing and submitting their bids.

Community benefits are included in this requirement. For more information see Schedule 1 of the FAC1 agreement within the ITT zip folder attached to this Notice.

Note: To register your interest in this Notice and obtain any additional information please visit the LHC portalhttps://procontract.due-north.com/Login

Suppliers are advised to allow adequate time for uploading documents and to dispatch the electronic response well in advance of the closing time to avoid any last minute problems.

The Contractor shall ensure that all contracts with Subcontractors and Suppliers which the Contractor intends to procure following the Award date, and which the Contractor has not, before the date of this Contract, already planned to award to a particular Subcontractor or Supplier, are advertised through the Sell2Wales portal (www.sell2wales.gov.wales) and awarded following a fair, open, transparent and competitive process proportionate to the nature and value of the contract.

Under the terms of this contract the successful supplier(s) will be required to deliver Community Benefits in support of the Authority’s economic and social objectives. Accordingly, contract performance conditions may relate in particular to social and environmental considerations. The Community Benefits included in this contract are:

To generate employment and training opportunities for priority groups:
