Prior information notice
The prior information notice is a notice published before the procurement has started. It is to inform suppliers about upcoming procurements and gives suppliers more
time to prepare and plan tenders.
The prior info notice should contain information about when the tender period is starting, what areas(also known as CPV, Common Procurement Vocabulary)
and an estimated total value.
The qualification notice contains information about the procurement that makes it possible for suppliers to decide if the want to apply to submit tender.
If the supplier decides to apply to submit tender a qualification application must be submitted. There may be qualification criteria that needs to be filled for the application to be evaluated.
Submit the application before the last application day and make sure you are qualified and if the procuring entity has asked for any documentation you need to attach them with the application. After
all applications are evaluated suppliers that are selected to continue to the tender process will be notified.
Request for tenders
In the notice requesting tenders you can find all the information that you should base your tender on.
The procuring entity often attach documents with the notice. They can consist of templates for tenders, specification, drawings, maps and much more.
The price query may look different depending on the procurement. Sometimes the procuring entity only wants a total tender price and sometimes they want specifications and prices for many articles and services.
The preferred technique for requesting tenders is through structured forms. The procuring entity defines different types of criteria that can be answered by suppliers directly with a web interface.
These criteria can then be evaluated and compared by the procuring officer.
Here the buyer informs on how the work for the job was assigned.
Signing of tenders
When you submit a tender at the portal it has to be signed. Signing is the way you say that you are happy with the contents of your tender and
that you accept that the procuring officer can take part of it after the deadline for tenders has passed. After you sign your tender it will be locked for changes.
If you want to change the contents of your tender you can revoke the signing as long as the tender period is still active. When you revoke the signing
the lock is removed and you can make changes. Regardless of any changes you have to sign your tender again for it to be evaluated.
