Criteria for exclusion
"Contracting authorities may lay down special conditions relating to the performance of a contract which may, in particular, be intended to favour environmental and social aspects, such as on-site vocational training, compliance with the provisions of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) conventions, working conditions and employment terms or the recruitment of people with disabilities, provided that the conditions are non-discriminatory and compatible with Community law and that they are indicated in the contract notice or the invitation to tender."
"...while assessing the economically most advantageous tender, the contracting authority may take account of economic and qualitative criteria to meet the needs of the public concerned, and environmental requirements, provided that these criteria are measurable and linked to the object of the contract."
