Section II: Object
Basic Medical Equipment — Washing and sterilisation Equipment — Framework Agreement for Bedpans for Helse Fonna HF (Fonna Hospital Trust)
The contracting authority wants to enter into a framework agreement for instrument washing machines for delivery to the hospitals in Helse Fonna (Fonna Hospital Trust).
The contracting authority places emphasis on flexibility in order to meet the need of the different departments, hereunder decontamination of bedpans, urine bottles, washing buckets, suction bottles, vases, etc.
Offered model/series must not be the type installed under work benches, but free-standing.
Fonna Hospital Trust has an estimated need to replace approx. 40 machines during 2 to 4 years.
See Appendix 1: Price sheet and Appendix 2: Requirements specification for more detailed information.
The machines will be delivered to the hospital and DPS' in Haugesund, Stord and Odda and various departments such as wards, maternity wards, laboratories, outpatient clinics, etc. The machines in question are not intended to be used in surgical departments.
The contracting authority notes that if tenderers are uncertain about which machine/model that best fulfils the need, parallel tenders can be used, ref. chapter 2.7 Parallel tenders.
The contracting authority has a unilateral right to trigger an option to extend the contract for up to 1 year + 1 year. The options are triggered automatically and on identical terms unless otherwise requested by the contracting authority.
The contracting authority will have an option to expand the contract with a service contract, cf. Annex 1: Price Form and Annex 4: Overview of service levels.
Option for service applies during the lifetime of the equipment and can be triggered in the form of new orders.
Section III: Legal, economic, financial and technical information
Registered in a trade register or company register.
Tenderers must be registered in a company register or trade register in the member state where the tenderer is established. As described in annex XI of directive 2014/24/EU; suppliers from certain member countries can be required to fulfil other requirements in the mentioned annex.
Tenderers must have sufficient economic and financial capacity to fulfil the contractual obligations.
Sufficient economic and financial capacity means that tenderers must have a credit rating of at least A or better, measured on AAA Soliditet's scale, or an equivalent score from another reputable rating company. Documented by a credit rating not older than 6 months, based on the last known fiscal figures. An evaluation must be carried out by the credit rating institution. We reserve the right to obtain a credit rating on our own initiative from a reputable rating company. Newly started companies with a credit rating of AN, individual foreign companies or companies without reporting obligation to the Brønnøysund Register Centre will not always be able to submit a credit rating as documentation that the qualification requirement is satisfied. In such cases, this can be compensated by providing alternative documentation together with the tender.
