WHAT IS SOA CERTIFICATION FOR?
The SOA certificate is the certificate required in Italy for submitting tenders for public works contracts, or a necessary and sufficient document for proving a company’s technical and economical capability in a tendering process, either directly or as a subcontractor, to execute public works contracts with a bid price greater than one hundred and fifty thousand Euros.
It certifies and guarantees the possession by the company in the construction sector of all the requirements provided for by the current legislation in Public Works Contracts field; recently it is also requested for amounts under one hundred and fifty thousand Euros, and, often, also in the context of private credit lines.
HOW IS IT RELEASED?
SOA certificate is issued after examination and validation of the documents produced by the company relating to the company’s last 10 years of operation conducted by specific certification bodies, which are organisations authorised to operate by the Public Contract Supervisory Authority (AVCP).
Arkad SpA process started in October 2019 and ended successfully at the beginning of December 2020 thanks to the constant support of the QA / QC and Finance Departments, active parties for the successful conclusion of the certification.
This is a very important result that will allow our Company to compete more and more on the Italian and international markets thanks to the skills, the will, the seriousness and professionalism of our people.
