Failure to supply any one of either (a) to (d) may result in exclusion. Any answers which leads the Council, acting reasonably, to conclude (considering the risk that the relevant answer suggests about the Applicant’s ability to properly perform the Contract) that it would be inappropriate to select the Applicant on this occasion will result in exclusion.
