					ANNEX II + III :                           TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS + TECHNICAL OFFER


Contract title : Supply of Laboratory Equipment and Supplies                                                                                p 1 /…

Publication reference : EuropeAid/D/SUP/130202/JM – Laboratory Equipment and Supplies




Column 1-2 should be completed by the Contracting Authority
Column 3-4 should be completed by the tenderer
Column 5 is reserved for the evaluation committee

Annex III - the Contractor's technical offer

The tenderers are requested to complete the template on the next pages:
       Column 2 is completed by the Contracting Authority shows the required specifications (not to be modified by the tenderer),
       Column 3 is to be filled in by the tenderer and must detail what is offered (for example the words “compliant” or “yes” are not sufficient)
       Column 4 allows the tenderer to make comments on its proposed supply and to make eventual references to the documentation


The eventual documentation supplied should clearly indicate (highlight, mark) the models offered and the options included, if any, so that the evaluators can see the
exact configuration. Offers that do not permit to identify precisely the models and the specifications may be rejected by the evaluation committee.

The offer must be clear enough to allow the evaluators to make an easy comparison between the requested specifications and the offered specifications.
