Questions related to the Public Notice for the collection of profiles of economic operators for the Media Center activity of the Puccini Celebrations Promoting Committee.

1. The UNI ISO 27001:2013 certification, which is requested to be submitted with the application, can it be provided later as soon as it is issued to the candidate company?

Answer: No, the resolution regarding the call for proposals requires that the certification be transmitted with the application by the deadline.

2. In the case where the corporate group is capable of providing all the required services through specialized companies, is the prohibition of subcontracting still applicable? Or can the controlling company (which possesses all the general requirements and professional suitability indicated in the notice) be utilized solely for the execution of services that characterize the purpose of its subsidiaries?


The answer to this question is provided in the same call for proposals, in Article 4:

The proposing entity can also consist of multiple entities, as long as they operate within a shared planning framework and with a unified administrative and management reference, such as a temporary association of purpose, temporary grouping of companies, or similar, even to be established. For the purpose of participating in this notice, the aggregations of entities must identify a lead entity with the role of proposing entity responsible for all implementation phases. In the latter case, the lead entity must provide documented evidence of the aggregation to which it belongs, in addition to issuing a surety bond equal to the amount of resources made available.

Essentially, the nature of the Committee itself and the variety of services it may request from the candidate company are determining factors. Once the lead entity meets the requirements, any association of companies, even to be established, can be considered. Furthermore, considering the nature of the Committee and the open-ended project involving various aspects, subcontracting is prohibited for core services but allowed for any other aspect.
