Should the tenderer be a public body, equivalent information must be submitted. The reference period will cover the past 3 financial years for which accounts have been closed:(a) the tenderer"s average annual turnover must exceed:• 445 665 EUR or 292 337 075 XAF for lot 1,• 437 530 EUR or 287 000 850 XAF for lot 2,• 397 625 EUR or 260 825 000 XAF for lot 3,• 379 445 EUR or 248 900 000 XAF for lot 4;(b) the ratio of short-term assets to short-term liabilities must be at least 1 for the last financial year for which accounts have been closed. In the case of a consortium, each of its members must comply with this criterion.2) Tenderer"s professional capacity (based on points 4 and 5 of the tender form for a supplies contract). The reference period will cover the past 3 financial years for which accounts have been closed:(a) relevant professional certification for this contract, such as sale/installation and/or manufacture of solar photovoltaic and/or electrical (low-voltage, very low-voltage, medium-voltage or high-voltage electricity distribution network) equipment;(b) the tenderer"s staff must include at least 2 persons (engineer and senior technician), highly qualified in the field of renewable energies and/or electricity, who are currently working in fields related to this contract.3) Tenderer"s technical capacity (based on points 5 and 6 of the tender form for a supplies contract):— the tenderer must have successfully completed the following during the period 4.1.2015–3.1.2018:• for lot 1: 1 or more contracts with a budget at least equal to 445 665 EUR or 292 337 075 XAF in the field of supply, installation and commissioning of photovoltaic equipment,• for lot 2: 1 or more contracts with a budget at least equal to 437 530 EUR or 287 000 850 XAF in the field of supply, installation and commissioning of photovoltaic equipment,• for lot 3: 1 or more contracts with a budget at least equal to 397 625 EUR or 260 825 000 XAF in the field of supply, installation and commissioning of photovoltaic equipment,• for lot 4: 1 or more contracts with a budget at least equal to 379 445 EUR or 248 900 000 XAF in the field of supply, installation and commissioning of photovoltaic equipment.This means that the contract which the tenderer refers to might have begun or been completed at any time during the given period, but does not necessarily need to 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.An economic operator may, if necessary and for a specific contract, make use of the capacities of other entities irrespective of the legal nature of the connection between itself and said entities. 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, in particular 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 use the capacities of other entities only 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 shall become jointly and severally liable for performance of the contract.
