two.2.9) Information about the limits on the number of candidates to be invitedII.2.9) Information about the limits on the number of candidates to be invited
Envisaged number of candidates: 5
Objective criteria for choosing the limited number of candidates:
The SPD forms part of a Candidate’s Request to Participate (RTP). The SPD selection process will be carried out in two stages;
Stage One: “Exclusion Grounds” (Mandatory and Discretionary) Part III of the SPD. During this first stage of the selection, the Council will determine on a pass/fail basis whether:
a) the Candidate has submitted a complete and compliant SPD response; and
b) whether any of the Lead Candidates, Consortium Members and/or Reliance Entities (if any) fall within any of the mandatory grounds for exclusion or, in the case of the discretionary exclusion grounds, are considered ineligible at the discretion of Council, in accordance with Part III of the SPD and regulation 58 of the Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2015.
Stage Two: “Selection Criteria – Minimum Requirements”, the Council will determine a ranking (through the scoring of SPD Responses) but only for those bids who successfully pass Stage One “Exclusion Grounds” referred to above. During this second stage of the selection, the Council will determine on a pass/fail basis whether:
Part A – the Candidate has achieved a pass for the following questions within Part IV, Selection Criteria of the SPD: 4B.4, 4B.4.1, 4B.5.1, 4B.5.2, 4B.5.3, 4C.6, 4D.1 and 4D.2. If a Candidate’s response is successful at Part A, then the Candidate’s response will be assessed at Part B below.
Part B – Where the Candidate has achieved the minimum score(s) for 4C.1.2 within Part IV, Selection Criteria of the SPD then the sum of the weighted scores achieved by Candidates for 4C.1.2 will be used to rank Candidates in order from highest to lowest score to reduce the number of otherwise qualified Candidates based on that ranking.
Based on the final score ranking, the Council intends to limit the number of otherwise qualified Candidates to be selected to receive an ITT to the top five (5) ranked Candidates, insofar as there are a sufficient number of acceptable and compliant RTPs submitted.
In the event of a tie for fifth place, all Candidates in fifth place will be selected to receive an ITT. For the avoidance of doubt, a tie for fifth place will be deemed to have occurred where two or more Candidates have identical scores taken to two decimal points.
