Mandatory Selection Criteria for inclusion into this exercise:
Sellers must visit the sites to appreciate the diversity of the building stock and the overall scale of the estate.

Applicants are required to include their Constructionline registration number.
Note: If you are not currently registered with Constructionline (or equivalent) and wish to be registered please contact them immediately and they will expedite your registration. This also applies to contractors from other EU members state organisations. Applicants who do not wish to be registered with Constructionline are advised that they can still apply for this commission. Application will be reviewed on ‘one off’ basis by Constructionline, in consideration of the requirements of this project. This would not require the supplier to be registered with Constructionline but would require the supplier to provide the necessary information to Constructionline to provide ‘one off’ approval for this commission. This also applies to contractors from other EU members state organisations. Further information on applying can be found at www.constructionline.co.uk
If you are a member of an equivalent body or hold no such membership or registration the University reserves the right to investigate and assess the level of competence held by your company and reject if competence is not sufficient to meet mandatory eligibility requirements for this Questionnaire.
The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Construction, Design and Management Regulations (CDM) 2007 place a duty on the University of Glasgow to ensure contractors and consultants we employ are competent. The University of Glasgow has chosen this route for registration because SSIP Forum members have recognized the need to remove unnecessary duplication in health and safety pre qualification and have put in place a ‘deem to satisfy’ or ‘mutual recognition’ arrangement between member schemes. Please confirm that your organisation is an SSIP forum member or is registered with any of the ‘mutually recognised’ member schemes. If you are not registered with an SSIP (or equivalent) member guidance is provided on the routes available for registration.
Note: If you are not currently registered with any of the SSIP forum members but wish to be registered please contact them and they will expedite your registration. Please see SSIP website at http://www.ssip.org.uk/index.html
Suppliers from other EU member state organisations can indicate equivalency competence by demonstrating membership of EU equivalent schemes SSIP will advise the University of Glasgow on the equivalency, or otherwise, of any scheme indicated by a supplier. If you are a member of an equivalent body or hold no such membership or registration you can still apply for this requirement but the University reserves the right to investigate and assess the level of competence held by your company and reject if competence is not sufficient to meet mandatory eligibility requirements for this Questionnaire.
