Luxembourg-Luxembourg: Operation of a dry cleaning and laundry depot
Section I: Contracting authority
Section II: Object
Operation of a dry cleaning and laundry depot
The Court of Auditors, whose headquarters are in Luxembourg (Kirchberg), is considering awarding a service concession contract for the operation of a dry-cleaning and laundry depot.
The Court of Auditors envisages awarding a public contract for the conclusion of a service concession contract with a concessionaire for operating a dry cleaning and laundry depot, for the sole benefit of the staff members of the European Institutions, within the K1 building, located at 12, rue Alcide de Gasperi in L-1615 Luxembourg.
This service concession will not give rise to the payment of a fee by the concessionaire to the Court of Auditors. The concessionaire will be remunerated exclusively by the users of the service. In this respect, it is specified that the presumed quantities of orders in the event of exploitation of the price schedule are given for information purposes only for the purpose of comparing offers. No compensation can be claimed if the quantities ordered by the users are less than the quantities presumed.
The contract will be for an initial period of 1 year. It may be renewed by tacit agreement from year to year, up to a maximum of 4 years, including the initial duration of the contract.
Section III: Legal, economic, financial and technical information
Tenderers must provide proof that they have legal personality. This will be judged on the basis of an extract from the trade register.
If an economic operator uses the capacities of other entities with respect to the financial capacity criteria, the court requires the economic operator and the other entities in question to be jointly and severally liable for the performance of the contract.
Technical and professional capacity
Tenderers must demonstrate that they have sufficient technical and professional capacity to perform the contract in compliance with the contractual terms, taking into account the value and scale of the concession.
Proof of technical and professional capacity will be established on the basis of the following documents:
— list of comparable contract(s): the tenderer must demonstrate that it has had a dry cleaning and/or laundry depot, or a dry cleaning and/or laundry chain, for at least 12 months,
— proof that the establishment has been approved by the labour inspectorate (ITM) of Luxembourg under a commodo-incommodo procedure, according to the law of 10.6.1999 relating to classified establishments, or an equivalent procedure of the country of which the tenderer originates,
— list of any subcontractors that the tenderer intends to use for the performance of the contract.
