Qualification Systems
Supplier qualification is a process by which EDP establishes a list of qualified suppliers to supply a particular category of goods or services. In order to achieve this, a number of objective and transparent criteria are applied, of a quantitative and qualitative nature, be their technical, environmental, economic and financial, or of any other specific kind.

  6. Questions regarding the documents and process: Questions regarding registration in the Supplier Registration System (SRF):

    Questions regarding the use of the qualification management platform:

  7. Yes. The 05/SQF/2014 qualification system for individualized Job Classes (CO), where you can select the CO you wish to qualify for, and the 13/SQF/2013 for work on Substations, in the electrical assembly or civil construction areas.

  8. Regarding the two Qualification Categories in question, the following should be said:


    • Regardless of the Qualification Category (Networks 1 and Networks 2), the Interested Parties, whether they are companies individually or in the form of a grouping, must obtain qualification in the totality of the groups of asset classes referred to in the Qualification Program; 
    • The typology of work/works to be carried out in the scope of future works contracts is, in general, the same in both Qualification Categories (Grids 1 and Grids 2);
    • Applicants that qualify under Qualification Category Networks 1 will automatically be considered qualified under Qualification Category Networks 2; Applicants that qualify under Qualification Category Networks 2 will qualify only under this Qualification Category (Networks 2); 
    • The main differences between the Qualification Categories derive from the specific qualification requirements to be met by Qualification Categories, as described throughout the Qualification Program, namely in point 9; please note that the qualification requirements of Qualification Category Networks 1 are substantially more demanding than the qualification requirements of Qualification Category Network 2; 
    • For information purposes only, point 1.6 of the Qualification Program describes some rules/conditions regarding future contracting procedures, depending on the Qualification Category in question, highlighting the possibility of constituting differentiated sets of lots, possibly grouped according to the Qualification Categories (Networks 1 and 2), and it is expected that the annual value of each contract to be awarded in Qualification Category networks 2 will be less than €7,000,000 (seven million euros).
  9. No. There is no impediment as to the participation, separately, of operators integrated in the same corporate group in the SQF under analysis, either individually or through a grouping. Thus, economic operators from a given corporate group may present, at any time, either individually or as part of a group, the respective request for qualification, as long as they meet all the qualification requirements under the terms foreseen in the Qualification Program in question.

  10. For the purposes of submitting an application for qualification, in cases where groups are formed, they do not need to be registered as an entity in the registration system. However, the registration requirement, at the 'Advanced' level, remains for the individual entities that are part of the group.

  11. In the qualification phase it is not necessary to identify which entities will be subcontracted, requiring only the information, by the interested entity, that it will use subcontracting and in which Class(es) of Work (CO).

  12. Yes. Only entities qualified under the qualification system reference 01/SQF/2021 may participate in the tender for contracting service providers to carry out construction, maintenance and service work on the distribution network under the management of E-REDES - Distribuição de Eletricidade, S.A.

  13. For the purposes of accounting for the technicians to be considered in the Qualification, we indicate in number 2.2.1 (category Networks 1) and 2.2.2 (category Networks 2), of annex I of the Qualification Program, the quantities per Asset Class and which training certificates must be presented for the indicated technicians, with no distinction, at this stage, per Work Class:
    Example: Network Category 1 : Asset Class/Work Group PTS + BT + Counts
    2 (two) Engineers
    85 (eighty-five) Electricians
    1 (one) technician with "MV Boxes" Certificate
    All the executants with certification in TET BT, that is, the 85 (eighty-five) technicians.

  14. For qualification in Qualification Program No. 01/SQF/2021, in the category of Networks 2 must comply with what is indicated in Annex I of the PQ. Specifically in the Grid 2 qualification category and in particular for the HV/MV asset group/workgroup, the minimum requirements for human resources are (i) 20 HV/MV Electricians and (ii) 1 FO Junctionist, as per the aforementioned annex. Simultaneously you must meet the requirements for the remaining asset groups/works group, indicated in the aforementioned annex.

  15. For qualification purposes in 01/SQF/2021, the BTN Energy Counting - Connections training, with a duration of 9 days and 10h of TET training included, is not adequate. Only technicians with complete TET/BT training (119h) will be considered.

  16. As indicated in paragraph e) of number 2.1 of annex I of the Qualification Program, they must guarantee that all their workers, to whom the possession of specific training certificates is demanded (TET, Execution of HV Boxes, MV Boxes, Execution of Counting Teams, Optical Fiber Joiners, Motor Grinders, working at height and others) must present the respective certificates issued by the training entities for that purpose. Thus, evidence of specific training in fiber-optic joiner by a training entity should be guaranteed.

  17. Act 414132129, Number 72, Announcement 4824/2021, published from DRE, Series II, April 14, 2021.

  18. Yes. Interested parties must be registered in the Supplier Registration System, managed by the GoSupply partner, in the registration level "Advanced" or "360". This registration has no cost for the entities that register.

  19. A video call session allows you to access the services provided remotely by E-REDES assistants, thus avoiding the need to visit an E-REDES store, particularly at a time when social contact should be restricted as much as possible.

  1. The Interested Party may only obtain qualification in one of the Qualification Categories, and must expressly make this choice when submitting the request for qualification, under penalty of exclusion. 
    Thus, the analysis of the respective qualification request is autonomous for each Qualification Category, so that the result of the analysis refers only to the Qualification Category for which the Interested Party presented an application
    Thus, if the request for qualification for Qualification Category Networks 1 is considered "Not Qualified", the Interested Party may submit a new application for Qualification Category Networks 2, if it so wishes. At no time will E-REDES consider an application submitted for Networks 1 as eligible for consideration under Networks 2.
    Notwithstanding the above, we remind you that a Stakeholder who obtains a Qualification in Qualification Category Networks 1 will automatically be considered as qualified in Qualification Category Networks 2.

  2. Both this and other declarations should be submitted in your registration area in the Supplier Registration System (SRF), maintained by the GoSupply partner (, and will be transposed to the application when preparing it.

  3. All documents that support the Request for Qualification must be written in Portuguese, which will also be the language adopted in all procurement procedures that will be carried out within the scope of the Request for Qualification.

    When, by their nature or origin, the documents are written in a foreign language, must the party interested in Qualification submit a legalized translation into Portuguese?

  4. The present Qualification System does not foresee the setting of criteria or rules of an objective and non-discriminatory nature in order to limit the number of candidates that will be invited to tender, i.e. all qualified entities will be invited to tender.

  5. The main form corresponds to the page on the platform that must be filled out at the time of application; there is no specific document that can be printed. Once all the information is filled in the platform, you must submit it, which is registered in the application.

  6. The contracting entity makes the EUCPD available in the parts that concern it, namely:

    (a) Part I (Information about the procurement procedure and the contracting authority);
    b) Part III (Exclusion Grounds), indicating other exclusion grounds applicable in Portugal, if applicable; 
    c) Part IV (Selection Criteria), if applicable.

    Subsequently, each competitor must complete the DEUCP with the information that concerns him, namely:

    (a) Part II (Information about the economic operator); 
    b) Part III (Reasons for exclusion);
    c) Part IV (Selection Criteria), if applicable
    (d) Part V (Reduction in the number of qualified candidates), where applicable;
    (e) Part VI (Final statements).

  7. The information could be placed in the "Chainsaw Training" column by changing the name of the column to "Chainsaw Training/MV Boxes".

  8. It is not necessary to repeat in the other tabs, it is enough to indicate the TET responsible in the tab "Info. Specific NETWORKS".

  9. (i) The candidates to the qualification under the Qualification Program 01/SQF/2021, may, for the purposes of compliance with the minimum requirements regarding the number of electricians for the Asset Class/Group PTS Works + LV + Counts, present the number of technicians indicated in Annex no. 1 holding qualification certificates corresponding to a TET-BT-Network course with a workload of less than 119 hours, provided that the companies evidence or declare that these technicians have a minimum of 2 (two) years experience in the function and have not interrupted the TET-BT-Network activity for a period exceeding 6 (six) months.
