c) alternative means of demonstrating financial status if any of the above are not available (e.g. forecast of turnover for the current year and a statement of funding provided by the owners and/or the bank, charity accruals accounts or an alternative means of demonstrating financial status).

Economic operators must also confirm whether or not they are part of a wider group (e.g. a subsidiary of a holding/parent company), and if so must provide confirmation of:

a) the name of the organisation;

b) the relationship to the economic operator completing the SQ; the organisation’s company accounts (if available); and confirmation on whether or not this organisation would be willing to provide a guarantee if necessary, and if not would the economic operator be able to obtain a guarantee elsewhere (e.g. from a bank).

Finance

See Section 4 of the Selection Questionnaire (available to download at: https://www.yortender.co.uk/procontract/supplier.nsf).

The rationale applied will be economic operators being able to demonstrate an annual turnover of at least twice the estimated annual value of the Contract. The anticipated value of the Services being procured by the contracting authority approximately one hundred and eight thousand Pounds Sterling (108 000 GBP) per annum. Therefore, economic operators must demonstrate a minimum annual turnover of at least two hundred and sixteen thousand pounds Sterling (216 000 GBP) to pass. Failure by an economic operator to supply either a copy of the audited accounts for the most recent two (2) years or any one of the document listed in (a) — (c) in Section 4.1 of the SQ may also result in exclusion. Further, any answers which leads the contracting authority, acting reasonably, to conclude (considering the risk that the relevant answer suggests about the economic operator’s ability to properly perform the Contract) that it would be inappropriate to select the economic operator on this occasion may result in exclusion. In addition, if an economic operator indicates in Section 5 of the SQ that its parent or holding company is prepared to guarantee the performance of the economic operator’s company, the information provided in response to Sections 5.1 to 5.3 will be used in the financial assessment of the economic operator.
