The financial stability of tenderers will not be assessed as part of this procurement exercise. If appointed onto the framework agreement, the financial standing of all Suppliers will be monitored during the framework (see clause 26.8 of the Terms and Conditions) by use of an external credit reference agency — Creditsafe. Where a Creditsafe report is unobtainable, other means of financial testing may be used to assess the financial standing of Suppliers.
As part of ongoing contract monitoring procedures to ensure financial stability requirements are met, credit rating checks will be carried out on an annual basis, using Creditsafe scores. A baseline credit rating score will be obtained at contract award stage and any significant changes to the score or concerns regarding the financial standing of the company will be investigated.
Suppliers can obtain Creditsafe ratings by visiting the Creditsafe website (www.creditsafeuk.com) — on the homepage click on ‘Free Company Report’.
