1. Applicants are to provide a list of projects, as defined in the selection questionnaire, to demonstrate their experience in carrying out works on similar projects.  This must include, as a minimum, completion date, value, description of the works, contract period, form of contract and client contact details.

NOTE:  References are required to be provided by the contacts listed for your experience and internal references will be used where applicable.

The Barnsley MBC Reference Template changed on the 30 April 2013 and any references (external or internal) on the old template are no longer valid.  References must be obtained and submitted using the new template, at Appendix A to the Selection Questionnaire.

Applicants not providing any of the above requested information will not proceed any further.

The financial accounts provided for assessment should be no more than nine months older than the bidder’s latest accounting year end date (in line with Companies House accounts filing requirements).

Please Note: Parent Company Accounts will be subject to the same checks as those applied to the bidder.  Where concerns are identified around the financial standing of the parent company, the interdependencies between the bidder and the parent will be considered and this may impact on the outcome of the financial assessment.

Where suitable financial accounts are not available (eg for a new company), please provide as much of the following information as possible:

• Interim and/or draft accounts
• Bankers statements and references
• Accountants references
• Management accounts
• Financial projections, including cash flow forecasts

Applicants are required to provide certificates/evidence of registration under SSIP or equivalent approved scheme, including the additional category:

• Principal Contractor

Where your organisation is registered under SSIP but not registered for the additional category of Principal Contractor you must provide evidence/d etails of your ability/technical competence, experience and track record by submitting project information/Construction Phase Health and Safety Plans/client contact information and the like evidence where such roles have been undertaken.

Evidence of current CHAS registration in the above category is sufficient to demonstrate competency.

If applicants cannot provide certificates/evidence of registration under SSIP or equivalent approved scheme and evidence for the required category stated above, their application will fail.

In the event that Design, Demolition or Works to Highways/Public Footpaths categories are required – evidence of registration under SSIP or equivalent approved scheme will be a requirement of the tender documentation.

NOTE:  Section 1 of the selection questionnaire will be scored initially to produce a scored ranked list.  A maximum number of eight applicants will then be assessed against the

PASS/FAIL criteria in Sections 2 and 3.  If any bidder FAILS, the list may be extended to include the next highest ranking bidder.
