That is to which extend the reference(s) are assed to be similar to the tendered assignment, cf. section II.2.4), in terms of comparability and relevance. As a result, the number of references will not be the determining factor alone, but more importantly to which degree the specific forwarded references are comparable and relevant to the tendered assignment regarding project type, project scale, complexity and the role and responsibilities completed by the applicant with respect to the role as commissioning manager, compression gas station.
