Advertised bidding Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Contracting authorities must, in principle, publicly tender contracts to meet the demand for goods and services and to carry out construction measures.

Contracting authorities such as e.B. the state and the municipalities are legally obliged to award contracts to cover their needs for goods and services as well as to carry out their construction measures in principle within the framework of tenders.

Public tenders must be published. Most contracting authorities use their own website for this purpose.
Invitations to tender above certain thresholds must be published in the Supplement to the Official Journal of the European Union (SIMAP).
The publications indicate which application documents are required, where and how they can be requested and what costs may be incurred.

Some contracting authorities have posted such forms on their websites for download.


Further information can also be found on the website of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi).
