Public authorities Lawyers

Public authorities (local authorities, public-law institutions and utility companies) are obliged to follow a (European) tendering procedure for procurement contracts with a value above the European threshold amount. The tendering procedure is subject to statutory frameworks and stipulations that are not exactly straightforward. The authorities cannot award the contract until this procedure - which in principle all businesses can take part in - has been completed.

We help businesses, including businessmen, suppliers and service providers to submit a tender, to complete tendering procedures and to assess the tender documents. In addition, we assist tenderers in disputes with the contracting party. Such disputes often result in preliminary relief proceedings, where speed and knowledge of the facts and procurement law are of the essence in order to secure a positive result.

Claims from ignored entrepreneurs in private invitations tot tender

Sometimes, government institutions issue private invitations to tender for a contract. This means that a select number of interested parties is invited to submit a tender. In such a situation, there is no subsequent public invitation to tender. This tendering procedure is permitted for contracts of which the value does not exceed the European threshold amounts.
