Section II: Object
Economic and legal analysis of the factors leading to a low rate of publication of public procurement opportunities in Germany.
Germany has the lowest value of contract notices published in TED under EU procurement legislation (2014 data: 1,1 % of GDP (including utilities) or 5,4 % of public expenditure on works, goods and services (excluding utilities), as compared to 4 % or 22 % for the median country in the EU-28 respectively). As the median contract value in Germany was close to the median value of all EU countries, this together with the low aggregate value shows that the total number of contracts published in Germany under EU procurement legislation (all procurement above the threshold) was comparatively low. This may hinder effective spending of public money and affect German and European businesses in terms of foregone business opportunities. The general objective of the study is to identify, on the basis of sound economic and legal analysis, reasons for the low publication rate in Germany. For more details on tasks to be performed please refer to tender specifications.
The place of performance of the tasks shall be the contractor's premises or any other place indicated in the tender, with the exception of the Commission's premises.
The contractor is expected to provide economic and legal analysis of factors leading to a low rate of publication of public procurement opportunities in Germany. It will do so, among others, by: 1. data collection/estimation on public procurement; 2. collection of the remedies bodies' (Vergabekammern and Vergabesenate der Oberlandesgerichte) and auditing authorities' decisions and other information; 3. identification and analysis of case studies. The contractor will submit inception, interim and final report according to the schedule included in tender specifications. It will also be available for 3 to 5 meetings with the Commission. For more details on tasks to be performed please refer to tender specifications.
