According to § 144 of the said Act, an applicant may rely on the economic, financial and/or technical capacity of other entities, regardless of the legal nature of the links with the entities.

Finally when groups of entities, including temporary joint ventures, participate in the tender procedure together, each of the participating entities must complete a separate ESPD with the information required in Part II-IV.

2) Information on the company’s equity for the last 3 financial years available.

If the candidate relies on the economic and financial capacity of other entities, the candidate and the entities in question will be jointly and severally liable for the performance of the contract, see s.144(6) of the Danish Public Procurement Act.

Where an economic operator wants to rely on the capacities of other entities, it shall as part of the tender prove to the contracting authority that it will have at its disposal the resources necessary, for example by producing a commitment by those entities to that effect. If the tenderer relies on the economic and financial or technical capacity of other entities the other entity must provide a declaration of support. The declaration of support must prove that the entity in question is legally obliged to the tenderer. A form which can be used in this respect is available as part of the tender materiel (Confirmation regarding the capacity of other entity (Form)).

The ESPD serves as provisional documentation that the candidate fulfils the minimum suitability requirements in respect of economic and financial capacity.

Before the decision to award the contract is made, the tenderer to whom the contracting entity intends to award the contract must submit documentation that the information stated in the ESPD is accurate.

Upon the contracting entity's request, the candidate must submit the following documentation of economic and financial capacity:

(turnover in the last 3 financial years available): a statement regarding the operator's overall turnover in the last 3 financial years available, depending on the date when the undertaking was set up or started trading, if the information on these turnovers is available. For groups of operators (e.g. a consortium), the information must be submitted for each participating operator in the group. Where an operator relies on the economic and financial capacity of other entities (e.g. a parent company, a sister company or a subcontractor), information for such other entities must also be provided.

(equity): the operator's balance sheet or extracts thereof in the last 3 financial years available if publication of the balance sheet is required under law in the country in which the operator is established, or other documentation of the size of the equity.

Where an operator relies on the economic and financial capacity of other entities (e.g. a parent company, a sister company or a subcontractor), information for such other entities must also be provided.

Minimum level(s) of standards possibly required:

Turnover in the last three financial years available: As a minimum requirement, a total annual turnover of at least DKK 60 million is required in each of the three last financial years available. If the candidate relies on the capacity of other entities, the turnover is to be calculated as the total turnover of the candidate and such other entities in each of the three last financial years available. For groups of operators (e.g. a consortium), the turnover is calculated as the total turnover of the operators in each of the three last financial years available.

Equity: As a minimum requirement, an equity of a minimum af DKK 5 million is required in each of the three last financial years available. If the candidate relies on the capacity of other entities, the equity is to be calculated as the total of the candidate and such other entities in each of the three last financial years available.

The declaration of support must prove that the entity in question is legally obliged to the tenderer.

If the candidate relies on the professional qualifications or professional experience of other entities for the performance of specific parts of the services comprised by the contract, see section II.2.4), such specific parts of the services under the contract must be performed by the entity on which the candidate relies.

The ESPD and/or the reference list serves as provisional documentation that the candidate fulfils the minimum suitability requirements in respect of technical and professional capacity, see section III.1.3) and the candidate's compliance with the selection criterion, see section II.2.9).

No additional documentation of technical and professional capacity will be required from the candidate.
