III.1.1)Suitability to pursue the professional activity, including requirements relating to enrolment on professional or trade registers
HMRC is using an e-sourcing (eTendering) tool or application for this procurement. Tenders will normally not be fully considered or evaluated unless Tenderers have first demonstrated that they have the necessary personal standing and are eligible and suitable to be awarded a public contract. Tenderers will therefore be required to provide a statement within an online ‘selection questionnaire’ as to whether any of the circumstances (relating to mandatory and discretionary grounds for exclusion) described in Regulation 23 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2006 apply.
III.1.2)Economic and financial standing
HMRC is using an e-sourcing (eTendering) tool or application for this procurement. Tenders will normally not be fully considered or evaluated unless Tenderers have first demonstrated via an online ‘selection questionnaire’ that they have the necessary economic or financial capacity to perform the contract. Actual requirements will vary depending on the particular requirement or contractual opportunity, but, as a minimum, the questionnaire will request the following information: 1) audited accounts (to include balance sheet and statement of profit and loss) and/or similar financial statements or information; 2) statement of turnover in respect of the required goods and/or service only; and 3) details of Public Liability and Employers Liability Insurance (as applicable) and other relevant insurances. If a company is a subsidiary, a member of a group or a consortium, the above details may also be required in respect of the parent company, other group members or each consortium member as appropriate. Revenue compliance will be considered and checks will be undertaken throughout the tendering exercise, using, as applicable, information from HMRC’s own records. UK applicants will be required to provide their tax reference numbers: i.e. Value Added Tax registration number, PAYE collection reference and Corporation Tax or Self-Assessment reference, as applicable. Overseas or non-UK Tenderers will be required to submit a certificate of tax compliance obtained from the country in which they are resident for tax purposes.
III.1.3)Technical and professional ability
HMRC is using an e-sourcing (eTendering) tool or application for this procurement. Tenders will normally not be fully considered or evaluated unless Tenderers have first demonstrated via an online ‘selection questionnaire’ that they have the necessary technical capacity to perform the contract. Actual requirements will vary depending on the particular requirement or contractual opportunity, but, as a minimum, the questionnaire will request the following information: 1) details of the principal business areas(s) in which the company is engaged and its structure, site locations and facilities; 2) evidence of previous relevant experience in the last 3 years, demonstrating capacity and ability to provide the required goods and/or services, inclusive of dates, size/value of contract and customer address/contact names for reference purposes; 3) details of quality systems in place, including (if applicable) details and copy certification relating to formal accreditation held, such as BS, ISO or equivalent; 4) information relating to compliance with Health and Safety, Equalities and Environmental legislation; and 5) a list of professional associations or trade bodies to which the organisation or individuals in the organisation belong.

IV.2.7)Conditions for opening of tenders
HMRC will be using an e-sourcing (e-tendering) tool/application for this procurement. This prevents any information provided by the applicant or tenderer from being viewed by the authority until the e-sourcing event is closed. The e-sourcing (e-tendering) application will display the closing date and time for this particular tendering exercise within the event. The close time will be the earliest point at which the HMRC nominated or a tender defined evaluation team member will be able to open and view the tender responses. Therefore, the opening time for tenders will coincide with the close date and time for the event and all tenders will become visible to the HMRC nominated or event defined tender evaluation team in any place that provides access to the e-sourcing tool/application at that time”.

Tenders, when invited, and all supporting documentation must be priced in Sterling and all payments under the contract will be in Sterling. Any contract or agreement resulting from the Invitation to Tender will be considered as a contract made in England according to English Law and subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
