The Government has developed an approach to ensuring that previous poor performance by suppliers can be taken into account and robustly assessed prior to entering into certain new contracts (as described in “Procurement Policy Note – Taking Account of Bidders’ Past Performance”. This will give Government confidence, based on past performance, that those awarded such contracts will perform them satisfactorily in accordance with their terms.
The policy is that, as part of any assessment of a bidder’s technical and professional ability, Departmental Bodies should ensure that any failure to discharge obligations under the previous principal relevant contracts of those who will be involved in performing the contract (if awarded to the bidder) is taken into account in the assessment of whether specified minimum standards for reliability for such contracts are met.
In addition, under the policy, Departmental Bodies will re-assess reliability based on past performance before key points in the procurement process (i.e. short listing, preferred bidder status, conclusion of contract etc.). Bidders will accordingly be asked to update the evidence they provide in relation to past performance to reflect more recent performance on new or existing contracts (or to confirm that nothing has changed).
