    • II.1.5) Short description of the contract or purchase(s)

      Rogaland county, hereafter called the contracting authority, invites tenderers to an open tender contest for the establishment of a dynamic procurement scheme for the delivery of office and school furniture for entities in Rogaland county. In addition a framework agreement shall be established for minor procurements/supplementary procurements.

      A dynamic procurement scheme is a fully electronic procurement process that shall be open for all suppliers who fulfil the qualification requirements and who have submitted a tender in accordance with this tender documentation. The submitted tenders differ from ordinary tenders as they are only a guideline and will be used to check whether the supplier fulfils all the qualification requirements and is able to offer the relevant products.

      Suppliers can also be qualified after the procurement scheme has come into force. This applies for the entire duration of the procurement scheme period, but all suppliers must fulfil the qualification requirements and must submit a guiding tender. It is also possible for existing suppliers to change/improve their guiding tenders throughout the period.

      The contracting authority will, when needed, announce competitions for specific deliveries through the competition tool Mercell. All qualified suppliers will then be able to submit a tender.

      Each competition will first be announced as a prior information notice. Suppliers who are not a part of the procurement scheme then have a deadline of fifteen days to submit a guiding tender and thereby be included in the scheme, before the final notice is announced. The final notices shall have a deadline that is set by the contracting authority in each case.

      The contract will be attached as an annex so that the tenderers are aware of Rogaland county's standard contract. This is only for information and a contract will not be signed with each qualified supplier.

      Even if a supplier is qualified and included in the dynamic procurement scheme, no contract will be signed and there are no obligations for the contracting authority to use the supplier.

      The competition shall result in the need for office and school furniture in the county being covered satisfactory.

If the contracting authority's credit information about the individual company does not include a credit rating, the contracting authority will seek to have this documentation requirement met in another way, either by assessing whether the financial capacity is satisfactory based on the other information that should be available in the solution from Experian or by obtaining other documentation.
