List and brief description of selection criteria:

This section refers to ESPD (Scotland) Section IV Part B:

Q4B.4 The University will use the following ratios to evaluate a bidders financial status:

— Profitability: this is taken as profit after tax but before dividends and minority interests. If a company makes a profit then it is a pass for this ratio,

— Liquidity: this is calculated as current assets less stock and work in progress, divided by current liabilities. If the answer is greater than or equal to one then it is a pass for this ratio,

— Gearing: this is calculated as the total external secured borrowing (short term and long term) divided by shareholder funds expressed as a percentage. If the answer is less than or equal to 100 % it is considered a pass for this ratio.

Bidders must provide the name and value of each of the 3 ratios within their response to ESPD Q4B.4. UWS requires bidders to pass 2 out of the 3 financial ratios above.

Where 2 or 3 of the 3 ratios cannot be met, UWS may take the undernoted into consideration when assessing financial viability and the risk to UWS, providing that the Bidder can supply evidence to substantiate any of the mitigating criteria when requested to do so. The following list is not exhaustive and other criteria may be considered where proposed by a bidder as mitigating factors:

Would the bidder have passed the checks if prior year accounts had been used?

Were any of the poor appraisal outcomes “marginal”?

Does the bidder operate in a market which, traditionally, requires lower liquidity or higher debt finance?

Does the bidder have sufficient reserves to sustain losses for a number of years?

Does the bidder have a healthy cashflow?

Is the bidder profitable enough to finance the interest on its debt?

Is most of the bidder’s debt owed to group companies?

Is the bidder’s debt due to be repaid over a number of years, and affordable?

Have the bidder’s results been adversely affected by “one off costs” and / or “one off accounting treatments”?

Do the bidder’s auditors (where applicable) consider it to be a “going concern”?

Do Dunn and Bradstreet, Equifax or equivalent consider the bidder to be a “going concern”?

Will the bidder provide a Parent company guarantee?

Is the bidder the single supplier/source of the Goods/works/services in the marketplace?

UWS will request submission of and assess the bidders financial accounts, and may use Dunn and Bradstreet, Equifax or equivalent verification systems to validate the information provided.
