Information and formalities necessary for evaluating if the requirements are met: See III.2.1 above.
Minimum level(s) of standards possibly required: Notwithstanding evaluation of the information provided to the Council in accordance with the invitation to tender, the Councils minimum requirement for financial considerations (in accordance with regulation 16 (7) of the Regulations), relates to the following: Each organisation must be in a sound financial position to participate in the procurement. This will entail independent financial checks of the last 2 years financial accounts. The Council’s has 4 key minimum requirement for financial considerations of which all must be passed before a full financial assessment is carried out, these being: (a) In accordance with regulation 16 (7) of the Regulations, relates to the contract limit, which is the maximum contract value that a tenderer should be expected to tackle within its financial capacity. (i) The Council will use a notional calculation to calculate the contract limit, based on turnover of the tenderer in order to confirm whether the tenderer is large enough to perform the contract. The contract limit is calculated by matching the tenderers turnover figure in their latest set of accounts, with the annual contract value. If the annual contract figure is more than 51 % of the turnover figure used it is unlikely that the tenderer on its own, has adequate resources to perform the services. (ii) By exception, the further full financial assessment may take place if a parent company guarantee or bond or deed should be obtained, provided the parent itself is suitable. (b) If there is an adverse auditors report to the latest accounts, depending on the details, contractors will fail at this point. (c) If a contractor is showing continual losses in their accounts this will be deemed a fail. (d) If the net worth of a contractor is in a negative position this will be deemed as fail. If a contractor passes the 4 key criteria a full financial assessment will take place, this will include selected ratio analysis of account figures, any CCJ’s a contractor may have against them, and any adverse information on company Directors. Failure to pass any of the above 4 key criteria will result in a fail and the bidder will be eliminated from the procurement process. Each ratio and other criteria will carry a points score of ‘0’ for fail and ‘1’ for pass, points are then tallied to give an overall score, this is then matched to a predetermined risk based scoring model where contractors will be assessed as Low, medium or high risk. Lower and medium risk bids will be assessed as a ‘pass’. High risk bids will fail and be eliminated from the procurement process. 2.1.3 The Council will also undertake a financial assessment of the tenderer, sub-contractors (if known) and if applicable the parent company including an audit of their last two years accounts. The Council must be confident of a suppliers ability to fulfil a contract.
