A company may not tender for a given contract both individually and as a partner in a joint venture/consortium.

This guarantee must be provided no later than 28 days after the tenderer receives the contract signed by the contracting authority. If the selected tenderer fails to provide such a guarantee within this period, the contract will be void and a new contract may be drawn up and sent to the tenderer which has submitted the second best admissible tender.

2. General experience: the tenderer shall meet the following minimum criteria:
the projects should be of a nature and complexity similar to those of the works in the proposed contract and completed within the last 7 years:
a) successful experience as prime contractor in the construction of at least 1 project with a minimum value of EUR 6 000 000; the project should be water infrastructure works of a nature or complexity comparable to the tendered works, including SCADA system;
b) successful experience as prime contractor in the construction of at least 1 project with a minimum value of EUR 4 000 000; the project should involve pipeworks (including valves and fittings and SCADA system) with a total length of minimum 20 km, water tanks, pumping facilities, and metering;

— similar complexity means mixed process, i.e. civil, mechanical and electrical works for a water supply system serving a population of at least 100 000, including trial operation, taking-over and performance testing,
— the minimum size (value) that will be taken into consideration is either the total project value, when the tenderer was acting as sole contractor, or the share of the total project value corresponding to its share of the joint-venture participation, when the tenderer was a member of a joint-venture.
The last 7 years shall be understood as the period: 1.5.1998 up to the deadline for submission of tenders.

NB: an economic operator may, for the purpose of this contract, rely on the capacities (i.e. economic, financial, technical and professional) of other entities, regardless of the nature or links it has with them. It must in that case prove to the contracting authority that it will have at its disposal the resources necessary for performance of the contract, for example by producing an undertaking (see as an example the FIDIC parent-company guarantee) on the part of those entities to place those resources at its disposal.
Such backing-up entity must provide in that case as well evidence (similarly as the tenderer) that it fulfils in its turn the respective criteria.
2. Litigation history:
the applicant shall provide accurate information on any current or past litigation or arbitration resulting from contracts completed, terminated, or under execution by him over the last 7 years.

They shall also satisfy the sound financial position and litigation history criteria;
d) major subcontractors (for more than 10 % of the tendered contract price) shall:
i. meet the general experience criteria set above in the same proportion as the envisaged part of the subcontractor in the tendered contract price, following the same calculation approach used for joint-venture/consortium partners, as stated above. The subcontractors shall meet the execution sub-criteria according to the nature of their involvement in the contract;
