CLARIFICATIONS ON THE CALL FOR TENDERS
«EVALUATION OF THE LONG TERM IMPACT OF REGULATORY POLICIES BY DEVELOPING AN INTEGRATED ENERGY-ECONOMY-ENVIRONMENT MODEL FOR GREECE»
QUESTION No 1.
The Call for Tenders document requires that the Tenderers must submit, amongst other things, a "valid abstract of the Tenderer's criminal record (in case of physical entities), issued by the competent administrative or judicial Authorities in the country of origin three months prior to the date of submission at the most."
The Call for Tenders document makes provision for companies which are not based in Greece by stating the following:
"If the [abstract of the criminal record is] not issued in the country of origin, [it] can be replaced by the Tenderer's affidavit before a judicial or administrative Authority, notary or the competent professional agency in the country of origin. In the cases where in a Tenderer's country of origin an affidavit is not foreseen, this can be replaced by a statutory declaration, in which the signature is authenticated by the competent judicial or administrative authority or a notary."
Our question is whether RAE could accept a solicitor rather than a notary authenticating the signature on the statutory declaration.
ANSWER TO QUESTION No 1.
Any entity, other than “judicial or administrative authority or a notary”, authenticating a signature, will have to prove its competency for doing so.
