Tendering and Assistance with Tendering Matters
Announcement pursuant to VOL/A or VOF (EU-wide call for tenders)
Scope of application: starting at an estimated order or contract value of 207,000 euros net
The following form the bases for awarding public contracts:
◾The German Act Against Restraints of Competition (GWB),
◾the respective contracting regulations (VOL/A, VOB/A oder VOF),
◾the German Ordinance on Awarding of Public Contracts (VgV),
◾the Act on Tendering and Awarding of Public Contracts for the State of Berlin (BerlAVG),
◾various European directives, and
◾the so-called "case law."
The goal of these bases is to guarantee fair competition with equal rights and ensure that public funding is used sparingly and economically.
As a basic principle, calls for tenders for public contracts must be published publicly.
If you have plans to award a contract or contracts over 100,000 euros, please contact Central Purchasing (Unit II C) with sufficient lead time.
