Page 42 a) If Bidder is Manufacturer: (i)                 Financial Capability b) The minimum average annual turnover as indicated on the table below which is Calculatedas total certified paymentsreceived for contracts in progress or completed, within the last five years Question ? If my turnover for the last 5 years in USD million was 8, 9, 10 11.5 and 12 is the "total certified payments"50.5 or 10.1 (50.5 / 5 =10.1) Page 44 ? CapacityDeclaration Question ? Based on the capacitycalculation does it mean that iswe have capacity to do one of the Lots that we can only bid on one lot? What happens if all thebidder bid only on Lot 1? I would appreciate if you can explainthe above process to me? I also see the above requirements fall under point 3.1 on page 41 with the heading "Post qualificationRequirements" The minimum average annual turnover isthe average of the total certified payments received in the five years i.e. total certified payments received from contractsdivided by five -Meaning turnover shall include only payments received nothing else. That is a requirement for a bidder toget more than one Lot and it MUST be met.Bidders are at liberty to bid any numberof lots even if they are qualifiedfor one lot.
