Section III: Legal, economic, financial and technical information
The applicant must confirm the economic ability in the ESPD part IV.B: “Economic and financial standing” with information from the latest annual report regarding the following economic indicators:
1. Equity (total equity incl. share capital, reserves, revaluation, retained earning etc.)
2. Equity ratio (equity/total assets). This must be stated with two decimals.
If the applicant is relying on the capacities of one or more other entities (e.g. a parent or sister company or a subcontractor) or the applicant is a group of economic operators (e.g. a consortium) the information for the ESPD part IV.B must also be given in a separate ESPD from each of these entities, cf. section VI.3 “Additional information”. It is the sole responsibility of the applicant to secure that the minimum level(s) of standards required are reached on the basis of consolidation when the applicant is relying on the capacity of other entities or when the applicant is a group of economic operators (e.g. a consortium).
Concerning 1: Equity from the latest annual report must, at the time of prequalification, be at least 990.000,00 EUR equivalent to 33% of the expected total value of the contract.
Concerning 2: Equity ratio from the latest annual report must, at the time of prequalification, be at least 20 pct. If the equity ratio is between 15 pct. and 20 pct. the applicant can qualify if Equity exceeds total expected amount of the contract.
The applicant can include the up to five (5) most comparable and relevant references undertaken in the past five (5) years as part of the application. The references must be stated in the ESPD part IV.C: “Technical and professional ability”. Undertaken in the past five (5) years implies that the reference must not have been completed prior to the date reached when counting 5 years backwards from the submission date for prequalification. References older than this will not be taken into consideration. References which have not yet been fully completed can be included as part of the application, but if this is the case, the applicant must describe the parts which have not yet been delivered, and this may affect the evaluation of the applicant, cf. section II.2.9.
The references should include:
• A specific description of the work performed for each reference, including: the applied survey methodology and equipment as well as location for the works
• Contract value (if possible)
• Contact information for the entity in question (including contact person)
• Date of initiation and final delivery (day, month, year)
Any ambiguities and/or incomprehensibilities concerning the above information may have a nega-tive effect on the selection of candidates, cf. section II.2.9. Please note the “description” box can contain more text than is visible. I.e. it is possible to copy paste text into the box.
If the applicant is relying on the references of one or more other entities (e.g. a parent or sister company or a subcontractor) or the applicant is a group of economic operators (e.g. a consortium) the information for the ESPD part IV.C must also be given in a separate ESPD from each of these entities.
The number of references should not surpass a maximum of the 5 most comparable and relevant references. If the applicant is relying on the capacity of one or more other entities (e.g. a parent or sister company or a subcontractor) or the applicant is a group of economic operators (e.g. a consor-tium) the maximum number of references to be submitted must still be respected and cannot exceed 5 when combined. If more than 5 references are submitted, the Contracting Authority will only consider the 5 most recent references determined by date of final delivery (in this case not yet finished references will not be included).
The applicant must submit a completed version of the ESPD.
Applicants may not be subject to the mandatory grounds for exclusion, cf. the Danish Public Pro-curement Act (udbudsloven) Section 135 (1-3) and 136.
Please see section VI.3 “Additional information” for further information regarding the ESPD. The application must be submitted through EU-Supply, cf. link in section I.1 in this notification. Applica-tions not submitted via EU-supply or received after the deadline will not be accepted.
The Contracting Authority reserves the right to request the applicant to supplement, specify or complete the information submitted.
The information is stated in the Tender Documents.
No special legal form is required.
If the agreements are awarded to a group of economic operators (e.g. a consortium) the partici-pants are required to undertake joint and several liabilities and to appoint one economic operator to represent the group.
