Selection and award criteria
The candidate has provided services for at least 2 contracts with a budget at least equal to 500 000 EUR in the following areas: study of the development of renewable energy and rural electrification or related fields, which have been carried out at any time during the last 3 financial periods. This means that the project the candidate refers to could have been started or completed at any time during the period given. However, it need not necessarily have been completed during this period, or have been performed during the whole of said period. Candidates may refer to either a project completed during the reference period (although started before this period), or part of a contract that has not yet been fully performed. In the first case, the project will be considered in its entirety, subject to proof that it was performed satisfactorily (declaration from the relevant contracting authority, proof of final payment). In the 2nd scenario, only the part of the contract properly undertaken during the reference period (even if it was started before) will be taken into consideration, to the extent that documentary proof of the satisfactory performance of the same are submitted (the same as for completed projects). These documents must enable the determination of the value of the portion of the contract referred to. If the project referred to was implemented by a consortium, in the event that a selection criterion relating to the relevance of the experience is used, the supporting documents must clearly show the proportion completed by the candidate, as well as a description of the nature of the services provided. Documentary evidence is not required at the application stage, but will be requested with the invitation to tender.
The first additional comparison criterion must be applied to all eligible candidates who meet the selection criteria. If, after applying the first additional comparison criterion, it is not possible to identify the 8 best candidates because two or more candidates are tied for the 8th position, the second additional comparison criterion will only apply to those candidates who are on an equal basis.
In the 1st case, the application must be sent before the deadline for submission, the postmark or deposit receipt being proof (1), and in the 2nd case, the acknowledgement of receipt given at the time of delivery of the application will serve as proof.
The standard application form must be used for applications. The instructions and format of this form must be strictly adhered to. The application form can be found at the following web address: http://ec.europa.eu/europeaid/prag/annexes.do?chapterTitleCode=B
The application must be accompanied by a sworn declaration of honour on exclusion and selection criteria using the template available from the following web address: http://ec.europa.eu/europeaid/prag/annexes.do?chapterTitleCode=A
1) Financial data to be provided by the candidate in the standard application form must be expressed in EUR. If applicable, where a candidate refers to amounts originally expressed in another currency, the conversion into EUR will be made in accordance to the InforEuro exchange rate of November 2019, available at the following address: http://ec.europa.eu/budget/graphs/inforeuro.html
