Procurement Law

Public procurement law is subject to a large dependency and provisions stipulated by European law as well as to extensive amendments due to the relative short period of time with regard to the detailed codification n Germany.

We keep track of the changes in legislation and jurisdiction in order to be in the position to provide competent advice to our clients with respect to all questions on public procurement law.

Our range of service in this area includes:

  • project, supply and service tendering
  • sector tendering
  • tendering re-examination procedures

In addition, we offer various seminars regarding this field of law which are addressed to non-juridical employees as well as staff of our clients’ legal departments.

Project, Supply and Service Tendering

Above the respective threshold values public principals are forced to put to public tender all contracts for construction works, supplies and services and to award the contracts in the framework of a public procedure. The relevant stipulations for this within the GWB (Act Against Restraints of Competition), the VOB/A (German construction contract procedures) and the VOL/A (Regulations for Public Supplies and Services) have been changed and amended within the framework of the law on modernisation of tendering rules.

Regardless of the subject of works and services and the procedures of tendering, we offer to our clients comprehensive advice in order to maximise their chances of receiving an order.

Sector Tendering

For principals in the field of drinking water or energy supplies or transport, the German legislation has issued the SektVO (sector decree) which summarises the European stipulations on this issue.

Within our support and advice in the area of traffic route construction, especially in track construction, we can offer our clients comprehensive consultation at the highest level also in this special subject matter.

Tendering Re-examination Procedure

Similar to temporary relief proceedings, the tendering re-examination procedure is strongly influenced by its urgent character.

This imposes highest standards to legal support. Difficult and extensive facts must be examined within legally binding prescribed periods of two to five days and must be prepared in written pleadings for the body responsible for review procedures.

Our competent staff represent you in the procurement supervisory committees of the respective federal states as well as in the Federal Public Procurement Chamber in Bonn and in the Upper Regional Courts.
