Section VI: Complementary information

VI.3)Additional information:

Following an internal review of the requirements set by the Council in the procurement documentation, the Council has identified a number of structural flaws in the pricing tables and evaluation methodology that cannot be addressed in the current procurement and in consequence the most economically advantageous tender (MEAT) for the Council cannot be identified. These flaws are set out below:

(a) it has become apparent that the pricing tables included for the tender stage were not sufficiently clear or structured so as to:

(i) enable bidders to understand the pricing submissions required and price accordingly,

(ii) to inform bidders how to formulate and compile their prices in order to enable orders to be priced under the contract,

(iii) correspond to the solution sought by the Council; and

(b) the pricing methodology for orders under the project was not sufficiently clear despite further clarification and as a result it became clear that Bidders interpreted the methodology differently and the proposals submitted could not fairly be evaluated; and

(c) the evaluation methodology was not sufficiently structured to ensure that the quality aspects of tenders met the Council’s high quality standards.

This was further impacted on by reason of (a) above.

As a result of the above and in accordance with the tender documents as issued, the Council has made a decision to exercise their discretion to not award the contract and to abandon the tender process.
