Achilles Supply Line is a qualification system within the meaning of Article 77 of the Utilities Contracts Directive 2014/25/EU which allows subscribing utilities to select suppliers for invitation to tender or negotiate. A detailed coding system has been developed by Achilles which works alongside the CPV codes allowing suppliers to register to be considered for certain types of contracts. Where a utility is covered by the Utilities Contracts Directive 2014/25/EU , the system can be used to ensure compliance with the process of compiling a tender list from a list of pre-qualified suppliers. Selecting suppliers from a qualification system is permitted under the Directive for the restricted, negotiated, competitive dialogue and innovation partnerships procedures.
