How will I be informed of the decision

All tenderers will be informed of the decision once the procurement decision has been made. No information will be provided regarding incomplete procurement processes.

A notice of the decision with justifications, comparisons and instructions for appeal will be submitted to all tenderers through the electronic tendering system simultaneously and with the same content. Following the procurement decision, all original tender documents (subject to the provisions of the Act on the Openness of Government Activities) will be available for review by the concerned parties at Procurement Services.

A party dissatisfied with the decision of the contracting entity may demand rectification of procurement in accordance with sections 132–135 of the Act on Public Procurement and Concession Contracts. Rectification of procurement can be demanded from the contracting entity in writing by a tenderer that took part in the competitive tendering or a candidate that submitted a request to participate, i.e. a party to which the decision is addressed or whose right, obligation or interest the decision directly affects (concerned party).

The concerned party must demand rectification of procurement within 14 days of receiving notice of the decision of the contracting entity or of some other resolution made in the procurement procedure.

With procurement exceeding the national threshold value, another means of appeal in addition to rectification of procurement is appealing to the Market Court. This must also be done in writing within 14 days of receiving the procurement decision.

More detailed instructions for appeal are attached to the procurement decision.
