List and brief description of selection criteria:

Please refer to these statements when completing part 4B of the ESPD (Scotland)

Part 4B.3

Where turnover information is not available for the time period requested, the bidder will be required to state the date which they were set up or started trading.

Part 4B.5.1 - 4B.5.3

It is a requirement of this contract that bidders hold or can commit to obtain prior to the commencement of any subsequently awarded contract, the types of insurance indicated below.

Employer's (Compulsory) Liability Insurance = 5 million GBP

Public Liability Insurance = 5 million GBP

Product Liability Insurance = 5 million GBP

Part 4B.6

The Contracting Authority also reserves the right to undertake a credit risk rating check on Tenderers. Should such checks be deemed appropriate to this procurement, the Contracting Authority shall utilise Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) credit check facility. Bidders must therefore evidence a good credit rating. In this instance, a good rating is defined as a D&B Failure Score of 20 or above.

The Conteacting Authority recommends that Tenderers review their own D&B Failure Score in advance of submitting their response. If, following this review, Tenderers consider that the D&B Failure Score does not reflect their current financial status, the Tenderer should give an explanation within the submission, together with any relevant supporting independent evidence. The Contracting Authority will

review any such information as part of the evaluation of the Tenderer's financial status. Where the Tenderer is under no obligation to publish accounts and therefore does not have a D&B Failure Score, they must provide their audited financial accounts for the previous 2 years as part of their submission in order that the Contracting Authority may assess these to determine the suitability of the Tenderer to

undertake a contract of this size. Where a consortium response is received, the D&B Failure Score of each consortium member shall be assessed. Where the Tenderer intends to Sub-Contract more than 25% of any Contract value of a single sub-contractor, the Contracting Authority reserves the right to assess each sub-contractor.

Should the Contracting Authority utilise the right to consider the D&B Failure Score, Tenderers who fail to achieve a minimum D&B Failure Score of 20 and above or fail to provide sufficient financial information (as above) to enable the Contracting Authority to undertake a financial assessment of their company may be excluded from this procurement exercise.

The Contracting Authority does not intend to include any community benefit requirements in this contract for the following reason:

The Contracting Authority recognises that community benefits are a key component in maximising social, economic and environmental

benefits. The achievements and delivery of community benefits can contribute to the University of Strathclyde's Strategic Plan.

The Contracting Authority proposes to use a voluntary approach to community benefits for this requirement; this approach is to encourage the Tenderer to offer community benefits post tender. These will not form part of the contractual obligation and will not form part of the considerations at Tender evaluation stage.

The Contracting Authority reserves the right to request additional deliveries by the Successful Tenderer either intended as partial

replacement of supplies or installations or as the extension of existing supplies or installations. The Contracting Authority may, at its sole discretion, exercise this option.

The terms and conditions governing this contract will be the University of Strathclyde's Standard Conditions of Purchase for Goods and Services, and the additional terms of contract at Part 2 of the Invitation to Tender.
