The indicator tells if the procuring entity - within the scope of technical and professional capacity requirements of the procurement call - extends the past period of the required references unduly, by derogation from the period as defined by law (5-8 years in case of works, 3-6 years in case of acquisition of goods and services).
The indicator tells from the wording of the procurement call if the procuring entity, with regard to technical and professional capacity requires references "financed by EU-funds" (which might be an unduly restriction of competition).
This redflag indicates risk if only a few of the companies that purchase the bidding documents submit bids (especially if more than half drop out) AND/OR relatively few companies submit bids, compared to prior similar tenders AND/OR fewer than the normal or expected number of potential bidders apply for prequalification.
This redflag indicates risk if there are no complete contact information AND/OR the procuring entity drafts overly vague descriptions of the goods, works, or services (so that bidders cannot determine their interest) AND/OR drafts overly narrow descriptions of the goods, works, or services (so that exclude qualified bidders).
This redflag tells if the procuring entity demands past annual revenue statement from the part of the bidders for a longer time than the legal maximum (3 years). It scans the wording of the procurement calls.
The indicator tells if the bid bond required by the procuring entity in the procurement call exceeds a limit (2%) compared to the estimated value of procurement, as demanding a too high bid bond might restrict competition.
The indicator tells if the procuring entity - as part of technical and professional capacity - prescribes the certification of references of a higher total value than 75% of the estimated value of the procurement. This redflag is built upon relevant Hungarian legal provisions.
The indicator tells if the procuring entity, when setting references, restricts the acceptance of past performances by only accepting references incorporated "within one contract" of a particular value and quantity. This indicator is built upon expert knowledge and scans procurement calls.
