Section VI: Complementary information
The use of the ESPD is a precondition for participation in the procurement procedure, cf. § 148 of the Public Procurement Act. DALO shall require that the tenderer apply the ESPD as preliminary evidence that the tenderer is not subject to the grounds of exclusion stipulated in §§ 135 and 136 of the said Act.
The tenderers and, if relevant, the participants in the group of entities and/or supporting entities, must use the electronic version of the ESPD. DALO has prepared an ESPD (an XML-file) available at Ethics. DALO strongly encourages the tenderer to use this XML-file when completing the ESPD. The tenderer must upload the XML-file to this website https://ec.europa.eu/growth/tools-databases/espd/welcome where the ESPD can be completed and later exported. No other versions than the EPSD must be used.
Prior to decision on award of the contract, DALO shall require that the tenderer to whom DALO intends to award the contract presents documentation for the information stated in the ESPD, cf. §§ 151-155 of the said Act.
DALO shall exclude a tenderer from participation in the procurement procedure, if the tenderer is subject to one of the compulsory grounds for exclusion in §§ 135 and 136 of the said Act unless the tenderer has provided sufficient documentation that the tenderer is reliable in accordance to § 138 of the said Act. Please note that certain voluntary exclusion grounds in Directive 2014/24/EU on public procurement have been made compulsory in § 136 of the said Act.
If the same legal entity is a part of or in any other way participates in several offers, e.g. submits his own offer and at the same time participates in a consortium which also submits an offer, the tenderers shall ensure that the same legal entity’s participation does not provide for opportunity for mutual coordination of their offers. DALO reserves the right to request the tenderers to establish and reassure DALO that the same legal entity’s participation does not threaten the transparency and distort competition between the tenderers.
Regarding Section II.1.5): the estimated value of the framework agreement is [kr. 18-24 mio.] The reason for the interval stated is the uncertainty regarding the actual value of the framework agreement. Hence, the lower limit of the interval constitutes DALO’s most qualified estimate of the actual value of the framework agreement at the present moment, while the upper limit of the interval constitutes the expected maximum value of the framework agreement in its duration.
DALO reserves the right – but is not obliged – to use the remedies provided for in Section 159(5) of the the Danish Act on Public Procurement (act No 1564 of 15.12.2015 – available at www.retsinformation.dk) if applications or offers do not fulfil the formalities of the tender documents.
