Section III: Legal, economic, financial and technical information

III.1)
Conditions relating to the contract
III.1.1)
Deposits and guarantees required:
To be specified in the tender documents which will be made available only to the selected candidates.
III.1.2)
Main financing conditions and payment arrangements and/or reference to the relevant provisions governing them:
To be specified in the tender documents which will be made available only to the selected candidates.
III.1.3)
Legal form to be taken by the group of economic operators to whom the contract is to be awarded:
Economic operators can submit a request to participate either as a sole candidate or as partners in a consortium (with or without legal personality). In either case subcontracting is permitted. The candidate must clearly specify the role of each economic operator — as a sole candidate, as a partner in a consortium or subcontractor. This also applies where the entities involved belong to the same economic group. Each partner in a consortium assumes joint and several liability towards the contracting authority for implementation of the contract and will become a party to the contract if the consortium's tender is successful. The consortium shall nominate 1 legal entity (‘the leader’) who will have full authority to bind the consortium and each of its members during contract execution and will be responsible for the administrative management of the contract (invoicing, receiving payments, etc.) on behalf of all other partners.
Subcontracting is the situation where the contractor enters into legal commitments with other legal entities which will perform part of the contract on its behalf. The contractor retains full liability towards the contracting authority for implementation of the contract. Freelancing, drawing on the activities or staff of any other entirely different legal entity than the contractor, qualifies as subcontracting, independently of the applicable national law.
Candidates must identify all subcontractors on whose capacities they rely to meet the minimum capacity levels under headings III.2.2 and III.2.3. Subcontractors must provide a letter of intent stating their willingness to participate in the performance of the contract. During contract execution any change of subcontractors will be subject to prior written approval of the contracting authority.
A sole candidate or a consortium may also rely on the capacities of other entities for meeting the minimum capacity levels under headings III.2.2 and III.2.3, regardless of the legal nature of the links which it has with them. If so, it must prove to the contracting authority that it will have the resources necessary for performance of the contract at its disposal, for example by providing an undertaking on the part of those entities. Reliance on the capacities of a third party which is a different legal entity from the sole candidate or the consortium members, even though part of the same economic group, is considered subcontracting for the purposes of the procedure. If the contract is awarded to a tenderer relying on a third party to provide more than 40 % of the minimum requirements for economic and financial capacity listed under heading III.2.2, the contracting authority will require that the third party sign the contract and become jointly liable for its execution together with the tenderer.
The role and tasks of each consortium partner and identified subcontractors must be clearly specified in the request to participate. The cover letter must give the name of the candidate (including all partners in case of a consortium) and subcontractor(s), including third parties on whose capacities the candidate relies, and the name of the single contact person in relation to this procedure. For consortia the cover letter must be signed by each partner, or by a partner duly authorised to sign the request to participate, the tender and the contract on behalf of all partners. In the latter case authorisation can be, for instance, in the form of a power of attorney, a letter of intent or a consortium agreement.
Candidates (all partners in case of a consortium) must also provide a legible copy of the notice of appointment of the persons authorised to represent the candidate in dealings with third parties and in legal proceedings, or a copy of the publication of such appointment if the legislation which applies to the legal entity concerned requires such publication. Any delegation of this authorisation to another representative not indicated in the official appointment must be evidenced.
III.1.4)
Other particular conditions
The performance of the contract is subject to particular conditions: no
III.2)
Conditions for participation
III.2.1)
Personal situation of economic operators, including requirements relating to enrolment on professional or trade registers
Information and formalities necessary for evaluating if the requirements are met: 1. Exclusion criteria:
Candidates will not be eligible to take part in this procedure if they are in any of the exclusion situations listed in Articles 106 and 107 of Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 966/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25.10.2012. Candidates (including consortium partners) and subcontractors identified as per heading III.1.3 shall sign the declaration on honour (available on the contracting authority's website indicated in heading I.1) to declare that they are not in any of these situations. The contracting authority reserves the right to verify all information contained in the declaration(s) by requiring the supporting documents listed in Article 143(3) of Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1268/2012 of 29.10.2012 from the successful tenderer (including all partners in case of a consortium) and all subcontractors identified in accordance with III.1.3. The contracting authority may waive the obligation to submit the required supporting documents if such evidence has already been submitted to it for the purposes of another procurement procedure and provided that the issuing date of the documents does not exceed 1 year from the date of the award notification and that they are still valid. In such a case, the tenderer shall declare on his honour that the documentary evidence has already been provided in a previous procurement procedure and confirm that no changes in his situation have occurred.
2. Selection criteria, legal capacity:
Candidates (all partners in case of a consortium) shall prove that they have the legal capacity to perform the contract by providing a certificate of registration in the relevant trade or professional register in their country of establishment/incorporation. If the candidate is not required or allowed to register in such a register for reasons related to its statute or legal status, the contracting authority may accept, as satisfactory evidence, a sworn declaration or certificate, membership of a specific organisation, express authorisation, or entry in the VAT register.
III.2.2)
Economic and financial ability
Information and formalities necessary for evaluating if the requirements are met: Candidates must comply with the following criteria:
— annual turnover meeting the minimum capacity level,
— financial viability sufficient to undertake and perform the contract.
The following evidence must be provided by each candidate (each partner in case of a consortium) and each subcontractor on whose capacities the candidate relies for meeting the minimum capacity level for economic and financial ability:
— (1) copy of financial statements (balance sheets, profit and loss accounts and any other related financial information) for the past 2 financial years for which accounts have been closed, published and/or audited or, where publication/auditing is not required under the law of the country in which the economic operator is established, self-certified as exact and sincere by the duly authorised representative. If the provided documents show net loss in any of the requested years, the economic operator must furnish another document as proof of its financial and economic capacity, such as appropriate bank references or a letter/statement by certified auditors attesting to the economic operator's financial stability, proof of professional risk insurance, or an appropriate guarantee from a third party (e.g. the parent company),
— (2) a statement as to the economic operator's annual turnover and the annual turnover in the field covered by the contract, over the past 2 financial years for which accounts have been closed.
— If, for some exceptional reason which the contracting authority considers justified, an economic operator is unable to produce the references required above, he may prove his economic and financial capacity by any other document which the contracting authority considers appropriate. In any case, the contracting authority must at least be notified of the exceptional reason and justification must be provided. The contracting authority reserves the right to request any other document enabling it to verify the economic operator's economic and financial capacity or to seek additional information and/or clarifications by any appropriate means (websites, official bodies, etc.).
The contracting authority may waive the obligation of an economic operator to submit the documentary evidence referred above if such evidence has already been submitted to it for the purposes of another procurement procedure and provided that it complies with the requirements of the present call for tenders. In such a case, the economic operator shall provide reference to the contract and Commission service for which the evidence has been provided. The contracting authority reserves the right not to select a candidate where the evidence provided gives rise to major concerns on its financial viability to perform the contract and the tenderer has failed to mitigate these concerns by submitting observations or other evidence of financial viability.
Minimum level(s) of standards possibly required: The average annual turnover of the past 2 financial years must be at least 240 000 EUR.
This minimum will be assessed in relation to the candidate as a whole, including the combined capacities of all partners in case of a consortium and all subcontractors.
III.2.3)
Technical capacity
Information and formalities necessary for evaluating if the requirements are met:
Candidates must comply with the following criteria:
(1) experience in the field of decommissioning planning and cost evaluation proven by an extract from a trade or professional register, or an equivalent proof of establishment, and a list of similar (in value, scope and complexity) contracts completed in the 5 years preceding the tender deadline. The list of past contracts shall include details of their start and end date, total contract amount and scope, role and amount invoiced by the economic operator. In the case of contracts still ongoing only the portion completed during the reference period will be taken into consideration. The contracts submitted as evidence of fulfilment of the minimum capacity levels shall be accompanied by certificates of satisfactory execution, issued by clients, specifying that they have been fully carried out in a professional manner. Where the services have been performed for EU contracting authorities, the certificates shall be issued or countersigned by the competent authority;
(2) a team of persons proposed to carry out the tasks described in the technical specifications. For each team member the candidate must provide a CV (preferably in Europass format) meeting the minimum capacity levels for this criterion. The precise contractual link with the candidate must be specified. It is reminded that freelancing qualifies as subcontracting (see point III.1.3).
Minimum level(s) of standards possibly required:
The minimum capacity levels will be assessed in relation to the candidate as a whole, including the combined capacities of all partners in case of a consortium and all subcontractors.
With regard to 1) at least 2 references of past contracts related to the scope of this call for tender (i.e. decommissioning, planning of decommissioning, cost evaluation of decommissioning).
With regard to 2) at least 1 member of the team proposed for the execution of the contract needs to have at least 5 years' working experience in the field of decommissioning, decommissioning planning and cost evaluation.
