Financial Stability

The Council will use Equifax to assist in its determination of the organisations financial status and risk and will require that all tenderers evidence the equivalent of Equifax Score Check Grade of D or above to pass this stage of the bid selection evaluation (for the avoidance of doubt tenderers should note that the equivalent of a D minus will not be acceptable).

It is recommended that candidates review their own Equifax Score Check Grade in advance of submitting their tender submission. If following this review Tenderers consider that the Equifax Score Check Grade does not reflect their current financial status, details of this should be provided within the Tender Submission, complete with evidence of a good high street credit rating (the equivalent of Equifax Score Check Grade D) from a recognised credit referencing agency. The Council will review any such information as part of the evaluation of Tenderer’s financial status.

Where the Tenderer is under no obligation to publish accounts and therefore does not have an Equifax or equivalent rating, they must provide their audited financial accounts as part of their Tender Submission in order that the Council may assess these to determine the suitability of the Tenderer to undertake a contract or contracts of this size. This assessment will consider whether or not the Tenderers annual turnover meets the minimum turnover levels stated above and whether or not there is any significant financial risk identified.

Where a consortium bid is received, the Equifax Rating of each consortium member shall be assessed however the collective annual turnover of all consortium members will be utilised in the assessment of annual turnover.

Where the Tenderer is a subsidiary of a group but is applying as a company and fails to meet the minimum financial turnover requirements or minimum Equifax Score Check Grade (or equivalent) as a company, a parent company guarantee will be required to allow progression to stage two of the evaluation. The parent company must meet the minimum financial requirements as assessed by the Council. If a parent company guarantee is required, the parent company must provide confirmation of agreement to the provision of a parent company guarantee. The parent company guarantee will be in the form provided in the Tender Documentation.

Where the Tenderer intends to sub-contract more than 25% of any contract value to a single sub-contractor, an Equifax report will be carried out on the sub-contractor. The Council reserve the right to request one copy of all sub-contractors last 2 years audited accounts and details of significant changes since the last year end.
