Information about the limits on the number of candidates to be invited
Envisaged number of candidates: 4
Objective criteria for choosing the limited number of candidates:
Detail of this selection process is to be found in section 5.3 of the Specific Tender Conditions.

— a maximum of 4 tenderers will be invited to submit a tender and, if necessary, negotiate provided that a sufficient number of candidates satisfy the selection criteria.

— C1 Experience in a large construction project as defined in section 5.1.1 of the Specific Tender Conditions.

— C2 Nuclear experience as defined in 5.1.2 of the Specific Tender Conditions.

— C3 Experience in design and build contracts as defined in 5.1.3 of the Specific Tender Conditions.

— F4E will invite to tender (and negotiate if necessary) those 4 candidates having obtained the highest total score summing up the points C1+C2+C3.

Would some candidates obtain equal scores and this would result in having more than 4 selected candidates, the final determination of the 4 candidates finally invited to tender will be made by summing up the value of the contract references provided to demonstrate the fulfillment of the 3 selection criteria indicated above.

— accordingly, F4E would then invite to tender the 4 candidates having obtained the highest total of contract references amount resulting from this sum of contracts reference values.
