The reference period corresponds to the last 3 financial years for which accounts have been closed:the selection criteria for tenderers for each lot are as follows:1. the percentage of the tenderer"s permanent staff working in fields related to the contract must be at least 5 % of the total staff; the relevant fields per lot are as follows:• lot 1: maternal and child care equipment,• lot 2: surgical and sterilisation equipment and materials,• lot 3: radiology equipment,• lot 4: laboratory equipment for biological analyses,• lot 5: EMS vehicles,• lot 6: office furniture and/or workshop and handling equipment;2. at least 4 (for lots 1, 2, 3 and 4) / 2 (for lots 5 and 6) members of the tenderer"s staff must be currently working in the field of after-sales service for the equipment that is the subject of the lot.3) Tenderer"s technical capacity (based on points 5 and 6 of the tender form for a supplies contract). The reference period corresponds to the last 5 financial years for which accounts have been closed.This means that the contract(s) to which the tenderer refers may have begun or been completed at any time during the period given, but need not have begun and been completed during this period, or have been carried out during the whole of said period. The tenderer may refer to projects completed in the reference period (even if the project began before that period) or ongoing projects. In the first case, the project will be considered in its entirety, subject to proof that it was carried out satisfactorily (declaration from the relevant contracting authority, final acceptance). In the case of an ongoing project, only the part satisfactorily completed in the reference period will be taken into account, subject to adequate proof being provided and details being given as to the value of the part that was satisfactorily completed.The technical criteria for natural persons and legal entities for each lot are as follows:1. the tenderer must have delivered goods (description, value, date and recipient) under at least 1 contract with a minimum budget of:• 300 000 EUR in the relevant fields of maternal and child care equipment (for lot 1),• 200 000 EUR in the relevant fields of surgical and sterilisation equipment and materials (for lot 2),• 200 000 EUR in the relevant fields of radiology equipment (for lot 3),• 200 000 EUR in the relevant fields of laboratory equipment for biological analyses (for lot 4),• 100 000 EUR in the relevant fields of EMS vehicles (for lot 5),• 50 000 EUR in the relevant fields of office furniture and/or workshop and handling equipment (for lot 6);2. the tenderer must indicate how he intends to provide the after-sales service and the annual legal warranty in the Republic of Guinea;3. the tenderer must prove his capacity to provide the following ancillary services for the equipment stipulated in the lot(s) awarded: (i) supply of a minimum stock of consumables for 6 months of operation, (ii) supply of a minimum list of standard spare parts, (iii) on-site training for maintenance staff, and (iv) on-site user training.

As an example, the contracting authority may consider it inappropriate if the tender relies, for the main part, on the capacities of other entities or calls on them for key criteria. If the capacities of other entities are relied upon, the tenderer must, in that case, provide the contracting authority with proof that it will have the resources needed to perform the contract by, for example, producing an undertaking from those entities to place those resources at its disposal. These entities, e.g. the economic operator"s parent company, must observe the same eligibility rules, notably regarding nationality, as the economic operator in question. Furthermore, the information relating to this third entity/these third entities for the relevant selection criteria must be included in a separate document. Proof of their capacity must also be provided when requested by the contracting authority.With regard to the technical and professional criteria, a tenderer may only use the capacities of other entities if they perform the tasks for which said capacities are required.With regard to the economic and financial criteria, the entities whose capacities the tenderer uses become jointly and severally liable for performance of the contract.
