This invitation to tender is issued according to the selective procedure pursuant to Article 15 of the Swiss Federal Act of 16 December 1994 on Public Procurement (PPA, SR 172.056.1). The procurement procedure is subdivided into two stages.

— Stage 1: during stage one, a pre-qualification review of bidders is carried out (pre-qualification procedure). The suitability and selection criteria include an examination of the bidder’s experience and specific market focus. As part of this process, you must demonstrate the core characteristics of your platform vehicle. The bidder’s platform vehicle must as far as possible be consistent with the existing supply, infrastructure and timetable concepts of the competent authorities. The platform vehicle is defined in the pre-qualification documents.

— Stage 2: during the second stage, the most cost-effective tender submitted by the pre-qualified bidders is ascertained in accordance with the award criteria. The tender documents will be presented to pre-qualified bidders after the relevant decision has been made. The tender documents describe the conditions and procedure for stage two. The subsequent procedure (level 2) focuses on the product-specific requirements of the procurement partners. The award does not establish any entitlement to conclude a contract. Specifically, a contract will only be concluded if the body with financial authority approves the expenditure. Tenders will be treated in confidence. Further information is contained in the enclosed pre-qualification documents.

Procedures for appeal: pursuant to Art. 30 of the Federal Act on Public Procurement, an appeal against this publication may be filed within 20 days since notification in writing in an official language of Switzerland to the Federal Administrative Court, Postfach, 9023 St Gallen.
