Same criteria for legal and natural persons:

1) Economic and financial capacity of candidate (based on item 3 of the application form). In the case of the candidate being a public body, equivalent information should be provided:

The average annual turnover of the candidate must have exceeded 800 000 EUR in the last 3 completed accounting years. Please specify the years in the table submission form accordingly (point 3).

2) Professional capacity of candidate (based on items 4 and 5 of the application form):

2.1. at least 2 experts currently work for the candidate in the field of development education and awareness raising in Europe; and

2.2. at least 2 members of the permanent staff have proven professional experience in tailored capacity development activities aimed at contributing to an efficient flow and use of information (e.g. development of information and communication tools and materials — including social media related tools, exchanges of experience and dissemination of good practices, mentoring and/or coaching, peer-learning seminars, development and delivery of trainings, etc.); and

2.3. at least 1 person currently works for the candidate in the logistic organisation of international conferences/events (e.g. all aspects related to the provision, management and payment of travel/accommodation/invitations/renting of premises, etc.).

3) Technical capacity of candidate (based on items 5 and 6 of the application form):

3.1. the candidate has provided analysis, research or studies in the field of development education and awareness raising in Europe, under at least 2 contracts with a total budget of at least 100 000 EUR, of which at least 50 000 EUR is implemented by the candidate itself;

3.2. the candidate has provided services, under at least 2 contracts for capitalisation and capacity development with a total budget of at least 200 000 EUR, of which at least 100 000 EUR is implemented by the candidate itself.

— The projects must include at least 1 of the following main components: development of information and communication tools and materials — including social media related tools, exchanges of experience and dissemination of good practices, mentoring and/or coaching, peer-learning seminars, development and delivery of trainings, etc.

3.3. the candidate has provided services under at least 3 projects with a total budget of at least 200 000 EUR, of which at least 100 000 EUR is implemented by the candidate itself, in the field of the logistic organisation of international conferences/events (e.g. all aspects related to the provision, management and payment of travel/accommodation/invitations/renting of premises, etc.).

Projects used as reference for criteria 3.1, 3.2 and 3.3 must have been implemented in the 3 years before the submission deadline (May 2011 to May 2014).

The project the candidate refers to could have been started or completed at any time during the indicated period but it does not necessarily have to be started and completed during that period, nor implemented during the entire period. Candidates/tenderers are allowed to refer either to projects completed within the reference period (although started earlier) or to projects not yet completed. In the first case the project will be considered in its whole if proper evidence of performance is provided (statement or certificate from the entity which awarded the contract, proof of final payment). In case of projects still ongoing only the portion satisfactorily completed during the reference period will be taken into consideration. This portion will have to be supported by documentary evidence (similarly to projects completed) also detailing its value. If a candidate/tenderer has implemented the project in a consortium, the percentage that the candidate/tenderer has successfully completed must be clear from the documentary evidence, together with a description of the nature of the services provided if the selection criteria relating to the pertinence of the experience have been used.

If the tenderer has implemented the project in a consortium, the amount that the candidate/tenderer has successfully completed must be clear from the documentary evidence, together with a description of the nature of the services provided.

Previous experience which would have led to breach of contract and termination by a contracting authority shall not be used as reference.

An economic operator may, where appropriate and for a particular contract, rely on the capacities of other entities, regardless of the legal nature of the links which 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 on the part of those entities to place those resources at its disposal. Such entities, for instance the parent company of the economic operator, must respect the same rules of eligibility and notably that of nationality, as the economic operator.

If more than 8 eligible candidates meet the above selection criteria, the relative strengths and weaknesses of the applications of these candidates must be re-examined to identify the 8 best candidates. The only factors which will be taken into consideration during this re-examination are:

1. the highest number of projects fulfilling criterion 21.3.1,

2. in case of ‘ex aequo': the highest number of projects fulfilling criterion 21.3.2;

3. if candidates have an equal score after application of the additional criteria 1) and 2): the total budget implemented by the candidate itself for projects fulfilling criterion 21.3.1.

Candidate should be able to submit documentary evidence to prove the relevant selection criteria.
