A minimum Annual Turnover of 15 000 000 GBP for the previous 3 financial years 2015, 2016 and 2017 (in GBP Sterling).

The Wheatley Group will utilise Equifax to assist in its determination of the organisations financial status and risk. It is recommended that Tenderers review their own Equifax Score in advance of submitting their Tender submission. If, following this review, Tenderers consider that the Equifax Score does not reflect their current financial status, the Tenderer should attach a document to their tender submission, clearly referenced, giving a detailed explanation, together with any relevant supporting independent evidence. The Wheatley Group will review any such information as part of the evaluation of Tenderers financial status. Where the Tenderer is under no obligation to publish accounts and therefore does not have a Equifax or equivalent rating, they must provide their audited financial accounts for the previous 2 years as part of their Tender Submission in order that the Wheatley Group may assess these to determine the suitability of the Tenderer to undertake a contract or contracts of this size.

Where a consortium bid is received, the Equifax Score of each consortium member shall be assessed. Where the Tenderer is a subsidiary of a group but is applying as a separate legal entity and fails to meet the minimum financial turnover requirements or minimum Equifax (or equivalent) as a company, in order to progress to the next stage of the evaluation they must provide as part of their tender submission, written confirmation from an authorised signatory of the parent company, that a parent company guarantee will be provided within 2 weeks of request. The parent company must meet the minimum financial requirements as assessed by the Wheatley Group.

Where a Tenderer is found not to hold the minimum requirements indicated, the Wheatley Group will exclude the Tenderer from the competition.

A minimum Annual Turnover of 30 000 000 GBP for the previous 3 financial years 2015, 2016 and 2017 (in GBP Sterling).

Where a consortium bid is received, the Equifax Score of each consortium member shall be assessed.

The parent company must meet the minimum financial requirements as assessed by the Wheatley Group.

Tenderers(s), if requested, will also be required to provide 2 years audited accounts, or equivalent prior to the award of framework.

Should the Tenderer not have the specified insurances at the time of tendering then, the Tenderer must certify in their response that the specified insurance will be obtained.
