Tender GR-IOA-001-2018 Epirus Transportation

Questions have been raised by several interested parties

All questions have compiled and answered accordingly and send to all notified or interested bidders.

There will be no other round of questions or clarifications.

  1. Question: Based on the timetables of transportation several buses will be required. On this matter, we will of course timely ensure the availability of specific vehicles for the specific routes. However, the successful bidders, will act as handlers, to pre-submit specifications according to section 4.2 for all vehicles, is practically an impossible task based on the great volume of transportations required and the fact that changes/replacements will be necessary to be made, which we are unable to know at this point. Of course, we can guarantee that the specifications of each used bus will be given 1-2 days prior to the transportation.  Please clarify whether it is necessary to actually submit at this point specifications for all vehicles.

Answer:  It is well understood that the respected buses can be changed. Therefore, we would need at minimum an indicative bus per location, and on the contract will be stated that the buses are going to be “of the same quality”. Nevertheless, there will be a bus inspection before the contract signing, and there will be a communication pattern if the bus changes.

  1. Question: The above matter extends to the drivers as well. Different drivers will be required and the designated driver will change according to daily availability. Please clarify whether it is necessary to actually pre-submit competencies for all drivers according to section 4.3.

Answer:  It is well understood that the respected drivers can be changed. Therefore, we would need at minimum an indicative driver per location, and on the contract will be stated that the drivers are going to be “of the same capacity”. Nevertheless, there will there will be a communication pattern if the driver changes. Specially for the drivers, as the task is demanding, it would be a good practice to keep same drivers on same routings, as it will help the level of the services and the communication.

  1. Question: According to section 4.3, drivers should be basic level English speakers. However, we feel obliged to inform you that a common problem we are facing, is that the majority of drivers in the region have a rudimentary knowledge of the English language. Please clarify whether this fact should prevent us from filing our application, since based on our experience, this specification cannot under any circumstances be met by the resources available, except an extra service of “English speaking assistant” is provided by the Tender Procedure, which is absolutely feasible to offer.

Answer:  With regards to drivers’ English knowledge, there is some level of flexibility. Yet, it should be stated that it, although it would not be a matter of excluding a service provider from the process, it might be a reason if – during assessment of the driver- ASB would ask for the driver to be changed due to low communication skills
