Public Procurement and public and private partnership

We provide comprehensive consulting services within public procurement and public and private partnership. A process of preparing and conducting proceedings for awarding public procurement requires not only expert knowledge connected with the object of procurement but also knowledge of the provisions of the Public Procurement Law Act and numerous executive acts. It is made even more difficult by frequent amendments to the act and by changing and highly extensive court and administrative decisions. Contractors who apply for public procurement, while reading announcements, provisions of terms of reference, and while preparing a tender together with all the documents required by the ordering parties, or becoming an active participant of procedures, may not stand competition without thorough knowledge of legal provisions.
