Section IV: Procedure

IV.1)Description
IV.1.1)Type of procedure
Award of a contract without prior publication of a call for competition in the Official Journal of the European Union in the cases listed below
  • The procurement falls outside the scope of application of the directive
Explanation:

Based on the surveys that the Directorate of Norwegian Customs has carried out in the market, there are no other service providers who provide the same combination of access to independent research and analysis material and consultancy services that Gartner offers. Knowledge of both the international and national markets and extensive market knowledge of them is also important. As there is only one service provider in the market, it is not seen to be appropriate to hold a complete competition in the market, when in reality, only one tenderer will participate. The Directorate of Norwegian Customs thus finds that there is a basis to enter into a direct contract with Gartner Norge AS.
