Economic and financial capability

Minimum level(s) of standards required:

Turnover: this is calculated as twice the typical value for projects called off this framework. If a company’s turnover in each of the last 2 years exceeds 500 000 GBP, then it passes.

Profitability: this is calculated as profit after tax but before dividends and minority interests.

Liquidity: this is calculated as current assets and work in progress, divided by current liabilities.

If a company passes both Profitability and Liquidity, the company meets the framework requirement.

If an economical operator fails either Profitability or Liquidity, LHC shall require additional financial information from tenderers, and take this into consideration in the financial assessment process and also obtain independent assessments on the financial information provided by the tenderer, or where applicable the Parent/Holding Company, and take this into consideration in the financial assessment.
