The Contracting Authority will review all of the completed contract comments schedules in accordance with the process detailed in the draft invitation to tender and may issue an updated version of the contract. Acceptance of the contract terms and conditions at initial tender submission stage will be pass/fail;

Objective criteria for choosing the limited number of candidates:

Following the supplier qualification stage, 5 applicants, who have met the required SQ technical threshold will receive an invitation to submit an initial tender. (If several applicants are in fifth position with the same score, they will all be invited to tender). The objective criteria for SQ selection will be as detailed in the procurement documents. At ITT stage, tenderers will be required to be contractually compliant, to achieve a technical score of at least 65 % and to meet the minimum requirements stated in the works Information in order to proceed to the commercial evaluation stage. (Note that the technical threshold will be lowered as described in the procurement documents, to ensure that a minimum of 3 tenderers go through to the commercial evaluation stage). The basis of any contract award will then be lowest price. (If 2 tenderers both achieve the lowest price, the Tenderer with the lowest price and the higher technical score will be the winning tenderer). The Contracting Authority can award a contract at initial tender, revised tender or at final tenders stages of the procurement process. If the Contracting Authority opts to invite final tenders, the number of tenderers who will be invited to participate in this final negotiation stage, will be a minimum of 3. Any decision to reduce the number of Tenderers participating in the negotiation stage down to 3 will be based on lowest price.
