Objective criteria for choosing the limited number of candidates: DeiC wishes to invite between 5-8 Candidates to participate in the call for tender.

Therefore, in order to allow this variety to be represented in the elimination process, the intention be-hind this choice is to increase the probability that Candidates who could prove to be a good match for the requirements of DeiC, are not eliminated before they have had a chance to represent their solution more comprehensively.

— Financial capacity,
— Technical capacity,
— Relevance of the reference cases to the situation of DeiC,
— Relevance of the product line to the situation of DeiC.
The Contracting Authority will evaluate the financial capacity with respect to stable financial numbers being better and the technical capacity with respect to comparability to this specific project being better including the Candidates' ability to show their understanding for the specifics of this particular project.
