Information for Achilles UVDB Qualification System Notice (QSN)


Achilles UVDB is a qualification system within the meaning of Regulation 77 of the Utilities Contracts Regulations 2016 and Regulation 75 of the Utilities Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2016 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 contract. Where a utility is covered by the Utilities Contracts Regulations 2016 and Regulation 75 of the Utilities Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2016, 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.

The information and links below provide the relevant information to sections II.2.4 (Description of the Procurement) and III.1.9 (Qualification of the System) for the relevant Qualification system notice published by Achilles in Find A Tender (FTS).
