This is the 2018 notice covering services announcing the use of Supply-Line as a qualification system, operated by Achilles and used by a number of contracting entities in Ireland. It is used for tenderer selection for contracts and framework agreements above the EU thresholds and from time to time for contracts below the EU thresholds (Euro 443000 for supplies and services; Euro 1 million for social and other specific services; Euro 5548000 for works contracts and works and services concessions). At their discretion, the contracting entities may publish additional calls for competition for any or all of the procurement categories listed in the Supply-Line Product Code Guide. They may apply additional rules, criteria and qualification stages for specific procurements. They may opt not to use Supply-Line and to publish a separate competition in OJEU or www.etenders.gov.ie. An information document covering the Supply-Line system and rules of operation is available to download from www.etenders.gov.ie under ID 128581. Some categories of business may be specific to some industries only within the scope of the Utilities sector.
