a. Pass/Fail Evaluation. A number of Pass/Fail questions each of which must be passed by the Potential Provider in order to progress (except where the Authority has discretion not to fail the Potential Provider). Where evidence has been requested to support a Pass/Fail question this should be of an acceptable standard.

a. Pass / Fail Question. If a ‘FAIL’ is noted for any questions assessed on a ‘PASS / FAIL’ basis, your inclusion on the Tender List may be precluded, subject to verification by the evaluation team.
b. Yes / No Question. If a ‘NO’ is noted for any questions assessed on a Yes / No basis, your inclusion on the Tender List may not be precluded, however this is subject to verification by the evaluation team.
c. 0 — Non-Compliant. No response, unacceptable or insufficient information provided upon which to make a reasonable assessment. Response fails to provide confidence and demonstrates fundamental misunderstanding of the requirement. Your inclusion on the Tender List may be precluded, subject to verification by the evaluation team.
d. 1 — Less than Satisfactory. Response is limited; it lacks detail, credibility and/or explanation, and demonstrates only a basic understanding of the requirement. Partial responses provided, not linked to the key attributes of the questions — anecdotal in parts. The response provides limited evidence of processes, procedures, roles/responsibilities and professional competency. The answer contains ambiguities or deficiencies that cannot be tolerated. Your inclusion on the Tender List may be precluded, subject to verification by the evaluation team.
e. 2 — Adequate Response. Response demonstrates a satisfactory understanding of the requirement. The response outlines clear roles and responsibilities, with adequate level of professional competency. Response includes some key processes and procedures, linked to key attributes of the questions and demonstrates a reasonably acceptable approach that covers most areas, however, lacks depth and supporting evidence. Your inclusion on the Tender List may be precluded, subject to verification by the evaluation team.
f. 3 — Good Response. The response is sufficiently detailed to demonstrate a good understanding of the requirement. The response provides details of team resources in terms of qualifications / experience aligned to roles and responsibilities, demonstrating a good spread of professional competencies and addresses the arrangements through the Stakeholder group. Demonstrable approach that is clear and consistent. Processes and procedures are reasonably well explained and logical. Response is clear, verifiable and covers all key attributes of the question. Your inclusion on the Tender List may be precluded, subject to verification by the evaluation team.
g. 4 — Excellent / Ideal Response. The response is comprehensive, unambiguous and demonstrates a strong understanding of the requirement. Approach is detailed and includes robust and effective measures, with processes and procedures being clearly explained and perfectly logical. It provides specific details of team resource that clearly demonstrates a full spread of professional competencies and works experience throughout the Stakeholder group. Clear and fully verifiable evidence provided that covers all attributes, providing high degree of confidence in ability to deliver. The response identifies specific commendations/awards achieved in relation to the question being answered, that can be verified by the evaluation team. The response clearly demonstrates the ability to benefit from lessons learnt throughout the life cycle of the project.
