There are different types of public tendering procedures and specific rules on how contracts are awarded. In some cases, national procurement rules are aligned with EU rules. You also have certain rights when bidding for cross-border tenders.
You must take certain steps when bidding for a public tender, and make sure you use the correct tools and submit your bid by the deadline. Find out how to submit your bid and when you should provide supporting documents about your professional situation. Be informed in advance, not when the tender you are interested in has already been published.
If you think you have been discriminated against, or noticed irregularities in the public procurement procedure, you can challenge a procedure decision. Learn about the waiting period (standstill period) and the review decision.
