Quality evaluation conditions for a contract award based on the lowest price
(1) At least 3 criteria are required for quality evaluation.
(2) The Public Protector must specify in the tender documents, for each criterion, the elements of quality required to reach an “acceptable level of performance,” which corresponds to its minimum expectations for the criterion.
(3) An acceptable tender in terms of quality is a tender that, for each criterion, meets the “acceptable level of performance.” A tender that does not reach that level of performance in respect of any criterion is rejected.
