In the case of a restricted tender (national), the contracting authority (contracting authority) requests certain undertakings to submit a tender. If the EU threshold is exceeded (for supplies and services EUR 200,000.00, for construction work EUR 5,000,000.00), a non-open procedure must be carried out throughout the EU, which, in contrast to the restricted tendering procedure, is mandatory for a competition. All interested companies can apply for participation in this EU procedure. The contracting authority shall select the appropriate undertakings in accordance with the general principles of procurement. It asks them to make an offer.
EU tenders must also be published in the EU Official Journal.
In the case of a restricted call for tenders, contract advice centres may assist the contracting authority in the selection of the undertakings to be called to.
You will find out in the tender documents which deadlines you have to meet for the submission of applications for participation and tenders.
