15.Implementation period for the tasks:365 days from signature of the contract until provisional acceptance.

16.Selection criteria:The following selection criteria will apply to tenderers. Where tenders are submitted by a consortium, these criteria will apply to the consortium as a whole, unless otherwise specified. The selection criteria will not apply to natural persons or single-member companies acting as subcontractors.1) Tenderer"s economic and financial capacity (based on point 3 of the tender form for a supplies contract). Should the tenderer be a public body, equivalent information must be submitted. The reference period corresponds to the past 3 financial years for which accounts have been closed:the selection criteria for each tenderer are as follows:• the tenderer"s average annual turnover must exceed the tender value according to the lot or lots,• the ratio of short-term assets to short-term liabilities must be at least 1 for the past 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 corresponds to the past 3 financial years for which accounts have been closed:• for lot 1, have professional certification relevant to this contract, such as being a reseller approved by the manufacturer of the supplies (valid certificate),• for lot 2, be an approved publisher,• for lots 1 and 2, the tenderer"s permanent staff must include at least 3 members 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 reference period corresponds to the past 3 financial years for which accounts have been closed.Tenderers may tender for lot 1 only, lot 2 only or for both lots:the tenderer must have delivered supplies under 2 or more contracts with a budget of at least:• 200 000 EUR for lot 1,• 500 000 EUR for lot 2,in the fields of supply and installation of equipment and computer hardware, including related services (installation, configuration, training), which were carried out during the following period: 3 years prior to the date for submission of tenders, i.e. between 26.7.2014 and 26.7.2017.This means that the contracts which the tenderer refers to might have begun or been completed at any time during the period given, 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, 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 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 contract performance.

17.Award criterion:The sole award criterion will be price.
